Enjoying your backyard patio in the spring and summer for cookouts is a joy for families in Kansas City. Many of your outdoor dinners are held on the patio right outside the back door. If your patio is made of concrete, gearing up for BBQ season should include an inspection of your patio and concrete porch.
Concrete front porch sinking in Kansas City?
Most concrete patios and steps are close to the house. Investigate the bottom of the step and make sure that the gap between the step and the patio in no more than ¼”. Steps built to current code should not exceed 7 ¾ “in height. Your steps can be smaller but not higher than 7 3/4″.
Look to make sure that your porch is not sinking or uneven. Uneven slabs in your patio of 3-4” can be hard for a small child to navigate and may pose a tripping hazard to family members and guests.
Your Concrete front porch repair is not too small! Call us!
A front porch that is sinking toward the house poses a threat to your foundation as water from rain or melting snow may seep into the gap between the patio or porch and the house, which could compromise the foundation of your home in that area, increasing the likelihood of your foundation developing cracks, a wet basement or bowed basement walls. All these problems add additional costs to fixing the root of the problem- your uneven patio. Like just about everything, the longer you wait to repair a problem, the more time and expense it will take to correct it. Our foam expands and finds all the empty spaces beneath your concrete slab, filling the voids and lifting the concrete. Our advice: don’t wait till it gets worse. Waiting may make your repair more expensive.
