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.

How your home looks from the street and how welcoming it feels when you walk up to your home is important.

Concrete Step Repair in Kansas City
Concrete front steps that need lifting may pose a threat to the foundation under the area underneath it. Water that runs towards the house where the concrete is uneven. This may compromise the foundation when it is raining or when the snow is melting. You might have a leak in your foundation if your basement walls are wet. Or there is water on your basement floor.
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 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. Foam jacking takes less time to fix, is less invasive, is less of a mess. It does not contract with the weather, and will not settle.

Steps should be 7 3/4″ high. Higher steps may be difficult to maneuver for small children and older adults. When steps begin to sink the height increases and more damage to surrounding structural systems is a greater possibility. Fix problems with your steps when they become apparent. It is usually less expensive than waiting until they get worse!
