Concrete Floor Leveling Maple Ridge
Its not a great feeling when you drop a spherical object on your floor and it starts rolling in the other direction. Even worse when you place that object in the same spot and it inevitably rolls again. For your floors, this is usually caused by one of two issues, your flooring is not leveled or the sub-floor (which is usually concrete) is not leveled. You could have a level sub-floor but poor flooring installation leading to an unlevel floor. If you an unlevel sub-floor, majority of the time regardless of how well the flooring is installed, your overall flooring will be unlevel. If you are looking to have your floors renovated, leveling your concrete sub-floors should be the first step taken in the process. An unlevel subfloor can lead to excessive movement of your floors from regular foot traffic, cracked boards, noisy/squeaky floors, and joint breakage. If you are looking to put your home on the market in the near future, uneven floors may be looked at as a pretty major flaw in your home which wont help the property value. If you end up having to redo your floors, that is an costly expense in itself.
Concrete Leveling Maple Ridge
New flooring code requirements actually require for your subfloors to be leveled. When our team works on a leveling project, we make sure that not only your floors come out perfectly level, your home remains spotless during the project. While we prep for a leveling job, we taper off baseboards and seal any areas where dust could enter. We also ensure there is proper airflow throughout the site for dust control
To begin the process, we start by grinding the impurities off the surface of you sub-floors. This can include bacteria, drywall, and paint. By removing these impurities, you get a stronger bond with your floors. A vacuum is then used to clear the space. Once the floor has been vacuumed, we do a quick inspection of the floors for any cracks or damage to the slab. A quick patch up may be done if we notice any damages.
Once the surface has been touched up, your floor is sealed with primer which is essential in establishing the bond between your subfloor and main flooring. As the primer dries, concrete is then poured onto the surface. Our years of leveling experience has allowed us to create a process in which we can pour the concrete at a fast pace to ensure the end product dries as one unit and remains level.
Our team now check the floor with a laser and straight edge to ensure the surface is within the guidelines of our pre-project discussion. Final touches on our side include of site cleanup, cutting any spray foam that remains and scraping any concrete drips.
