Pool Deck Concrete Lifting

in Greater Vancouver, BC

Do you have an uneven or unlevelled pool deck? Have you noticed cracks or separations in the concrete slabs? If so, you may need exterior concrete lifting to restore your pool deck slabs. Concrete slabs sink and settle over time, and allowing them to go unrepaired can cause serious damage to your home.

Pool decks most frequently settle at the edges away from the pool due to water splashing out over time. Issues created are excessive slopes and trip hazards which particularly hazardous because adults and kids walking with bare feet.

Another issue is that settlement rarely occurs in a single panel. Various panels bordering the pool may settle at different rates, causing the entire perimeter to be uneven. This poses multiple trip hazards, especially when exiting the pool. With the concrete wet from the pool water, even the deck sinking as little as half an inch can pose a safety issue, especially for children.

How did this happen

Sinking pool deck concrete slabs happen due to weak soils, poor compaction and drainage issues. Insufficient compactness causes the backfill to settle after several years, leading to pockets of air that eventually cause the pool deck to sink and crack.


How we fix it

Level Best Concrete Lifting uses a high-density polyurethane foam to stabilize and lift sinking concrete pool deck slabs. The expanding properties of the two-part urethane formula allows for accurate leveling of the slab. The result is a waterproof repair that’s much more permanent than mudjacking and other common concrete repair methods.
