Concrete Home Improvement Projects:

Fallen, cracked and damaged concrete is not only visually unappealing, it also can be dangerous. Don’t put off your concrete repair projects in 2019. Mr. Level has expertise when it comes to concrete floors, basements, pool decks, patios, curbs, driveways, sidewalks and more. Check out all the different ways Mr. Level can help you with your home improvement projects this year.

Level Your Concrete

As you’re outside shoveling your driveway and walkways, think about what’s underneath the blanket of white. Have sunken or damaged concrete? Sunken slabs of concrete are common in Ohio, especially with the changing weather. After a dramatic freeze and thaw cycle, heaving can occur, causing the ground to push up on concrete and crack. It’s wise to have a game plan in place to prepare for any cracks that may surface come springtime.

In the winter, though, you should consider any interior home renovations. With the kids running around the basement, imperfections become more apparent and can create tripping hazards and other liabilities. Additionally, the impact of winter freezing and salt will wreak havoc on your garage floor. Winter is the perfect time to repair concrete floors with Mr. Level’s polyurethane foam method. Our polyurethane leveling process is used for concrete lifting, stabilization and void filling. In mere hours—and for half the cost of concrete replacement—your floors will be ready for entertaining and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Replace Your Concrete

Need a new driveway put in or an old driveway dug out and replaced? While we’ll always recommend concrete repair first, Mr. Level is one of the only companies that will redo your concrete if it’s unable to be fixed or replaced. As a full-service concrete company, Mr. Level has experience with driveways and extensions, porches, patios, decorative concrete, pool decks, garage floors, basement floors, and more. Not to mention, Mr. Level offers a two-year guarantee on all new concrete.

Looking for a nice finish to enhance the look of your home? Mr. Level is one of the few companies that allows you to choose a color and stamp design before we get started. Have a specific look in mind? We can replace your driveway with more than a simple broom finish. We offer many designs, including a hand troll finish or a stamped border, to help you achieve the right look for your home.  

For home improvement ideas on a budget, you can repair seawall.

Reinforce Your Seawall

If you live on the shore of Lake Erie, investing in seawall reinforcement now can help save money on costly seawall repair in the future. Due to the high-impact energy derived day in and day out from the waves, seawalls are highly susceptible to falling and/or cracking—and they are very expensive to replace.

Take preventive measures this year by reinforcing your seawall with Mr. Level’s polyurethane foam. A properly maintained seawall should last between 40 to 60 years, and  our poly leveling reinforcement will save you and your community the costly expense of having to replace the seawall on a more frequent basis.

How Ohio Weather Affects Concrete

By Mr. Level
June 24, 2019 Category: General

The beauty of Ohio is that we truly get to experience all four seasonswinter, spring, summer, and autumn. From a concrete perspective, though, these different seasons can negatively affect concrete. When its too hot, too cold, or when both temperature extremes are felt in one day, the weather can damage your concrete, leaving unsightly cracks and uneven concrete. Heres how the different seasons can take a toll on your new and existing concrete. Winter You know how brutal Ohio winters can be. Freezing temperatures, snow, and ice can all wreak havoc on your concrete. However, salt can sometimes end up doing the most damage. Concrete is a permeable material, so even though its solid and strong, liquids and gases can still pass through it. When salt and other de-icing chemicals are put on concrete, the acidic properties of the salt can seep through the concrete and attack the bonds that hold the concrete together. This causes your concrete to deteriorate faster and cause cracks, voids,

How to Check for Water Leaks in Your Home

June 24, 2019 Category: Water Leaks

This season, weve seen a lot of rain in Northeast Ohio. One of the most commonand importantjobs is preventing water from leaking into your home. At Mr. Level, weve helped both customers who already have water in their basement as well as people who see the water outside of their homes that hasnt made its way into their house yet. Before you give us a call, here are two places to check around your home to prevent water leaks. 1. Gutters Look up: Are your gutters draining the water toward your house or away from it? A quality gutter system will collect the rainwater that runs off your home and deposit onto the ground away from your home. There could be a number of reasons why your gutters are draining water toward your home. Do your gutters need to be cleaned? Leaves and other debris often gets trapped in the system, causing rain water to spill close to the foundation of your home. Are your gutters sagging? You may need to replace the hangars. And dont forget to inspect your downspouts.

Your daughter likes to dribble around your driveway. You love shooting hoops with your son. Playing basketball in your driveway is good for more than sneaking in some quality family time or becoming the next Lebron James. Your driveway basketball court can also be a great tool to test the strength of your concrete. Fill Driveway Voids Do you hear an echo when your dribble a basketball on your driveway? Do you feel like the ground is shaking? When this happens, it means there is a void under your driveway. Voids can cause the concrete to crack, which can lead to trip hazards and injuries. Polyurethane can be used to fill the voids under your driveway. The process is simple: We drill a dime-sized hole, put our ports in the ground, and the foam goes in. The polyurethane foam expands to fill the voids and hardens within 15 seconds. The best part is that it doesnt have to interrupt your basketball game! Because of the quick cure time, you can be back shooting hoops on your driveway immediately. Level
