Repairing and leveling the garage floor in Glenview without the drain

Our another project involved the renovation of cracked garage floors. The main aspect of the project was to level the floors throughout to prevent the issues of standing water and puddles after storms. The client's budget didn't allow for a complete redo of the slab which would have involved taking out the old concrete and pouring a new slab in its place. Instead we leveled the floor with a slope to the side for proper drainage and we also installed ceramic tiles. To complete the job properly we had to consider the appropriate use of technology to ensure the floor was perfectly level to prevent future cracking and standing of water. We installed a proper base which acts as a barrier to prevent cracks in the slab and also helps to prevent damage to the tiles from the car. Materials used included properly bonded cement for lower cost. You can see some of the work in photographs.

The edges of the tiles, along with the stair step at the home's entrance, were finished with Schluters as another method to prevent damage.

The finished product can be seen in more photographs.

With leveling being correct, a ball should roll out of the garage on its own. 

These project required extensive work to complete it correctly. Attention to detail was crucial to ensure that the floor was leveled and would not experience issues with standing water again. The results of this project were a leveled basement that was functional and also looked nice with the new ceramic tiles.
