SIDEWALK & DRIVEWAY RESTORATION
We are a Toronto-based company specialized in thin patch applications and extensive crack repair, which allow us to fully restore sidewalk slab geometry.
In most cases, there is no need to recast concrete slabs.
Concrete Sidewalk & Driveway Repair
We restore concrete sidewalks and driveways, and do concrete walkway repair through extensive crack filling and thin patch applications. Our specialized industrial-strength materials and procedures allow us to avoid sidewalk and driveway replacement (it is only done if specified by engineers), providing efficient sidewalk and driveway
Why Sidewalks & Driveways Break
Concrete tends to crack as it ages, especially if it is exposed to weather elements, as is the case with sidewalks and driveways. Due to high traffic, these concrete surfaces degrade faster.
If crack repair and / or patching is done in a timely manner,
in most cases sidewalk and driveway replacement can be avoided.
Sidewalk & Driveway Repair
We can repair broken up concrete sidewalks and driveways through thin concrete patching, which provides complete restoration. Concrete slab replacement is only done when indicated by engineers.
Sidewalk & Driveway Levelling
We are able to level concrete sidewalks and driveways by applying thin patches. When necessary, we also lift sidewalk slabs to even them out with the adjoining ones, by filling in the void underneath with appropriate materials.
Sidewalk & Driveway Replacement
In areas where patching is not an option, engineers specify sidewalk or driveway replacement.
To replace a concrete sidewalk or driveway slab, old concrete is removed, and the form for the new concrete slab is installed. A bond breaker is applied between the plates to prevent the slabs from merging. The new slab is poured into the form; when the form is removed, the area is finished.
Thin patch applications allow us to do concrete driveway resurfacing and complete sidewalk restoration.
Full demolition and recasting are usually not necessary.
Unlike with traditional methods that require a two-inch demolition of concrete surfaces, we can do patching as thin as 5 mm, which saves time and labour.
No Extensive Closures
Extensive closures are avoided since it is not necessary to demolish entire sidewalks. Monolithic adhesion provided by our products allows for efficient and lasting concrete repairs.
Concrete Sidewalk & Driveway Patching
Concrete driveway and sidewalk resurfacing is possible through thin patch applications. Our specialized, industrial-strength materials permit patches as thin as 5 mm.
While under traditional repair methods, large parts of the sidewalk or driveway slabs would require complete demolition and recasting, the use of specialized concrete adhesives and polymer cement make concrete driveway and sidewalk repair or resurfacing much more cost-effective and faster. Industrial-strength concrete adhesives ensure long-resulting results.
Q - Sidewalk Replacement
Q: Our sidewalk has a lot of cracks – does it have to be replaced?
A: Under traditional methods it would have to be – new concrete cannot be glued to old surfaces. However, our industrial-strength adhesive makes sidewalk repairs possible.
Q - Patching a Sidewalk
Q: Is it possible to patch a sidewalk?
A: This would be impossible with traditional materials. We are able to make new concrete bond to the existing one by using our specialized methods and industrial-strength adhesives.
Q - Levelling a Driveway
Q: Can my sidewalk be levelled?
A: We are able to level sidewalks by repairing it with thin patches. Unlike with traditional methods that require a minimum of two-inch demolition, the use of polymer cement together with our industrial-strength adhesive allows for thin patching to be done (which makes it possible to level the sidewalk).
