Concrete Step Repair
Your home is one of the biggest investments you will make It may be your dream home, or it may be a step to owning your dream home. Either way, it’s yours right now, and you are proud of it. People buy a home for personal reasons. There are always things on a “wish list” when someone buys a new home and curb appeal is usually one of them. That appeal can be shattered if the home is in need of concrete step repair.
How your home looks from the street and how welcoming it feels when you walk up to your home is important. If your home has concrete front steps or front porch, ensure those steps are not sinking, or uneven. Your steps may be something you have looked at in a while. Your visitors notice it right away every time they approach your home.
Concrete Step Repair
Concrete front steps that need lifting may be posing a threat to the foundation under the area underneath it. Water that runs towards the house where the concrete is uneven may be compromising the foundation when it is raining or when the snow is melting. If your basement walls are wet, or there is water on your basement floor, you might have a leak in your foundation.
Avoid the unnecessary costs of repairing your foundation by making sure your front steps are taken care of before it is too late.
We use an eco-friendly polyurethane foam to raise and lift your concrete front steps into place. Polyurethane foam is lighter than traditional cement, water and dirt filled mud jacking, takes less time to fix, is less invasive, less mess, does not contract with weather and will not settle.
We use High-Tech Foam to Raise Sinking Concrete Steps
Steps should be 7 3/4″ high and that anything more than that height may be difficult to maneuver for small children and older adults. When steps begin to sink the height increases and the chance of more damage to surrounding structural systems is a greater possibility. Fixing problems with your steps, when they become apparent, is always less expensive than waiting till they get worse!
