What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step repair involves lifting, stabilizing, and restoring damaged, sinking, or cracked exterior concrete steps. 

Conventional repair methods, such as mudjacking or complete replacement, fall short as they fail to address the root cause of the problem. 

Modern approaches like concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections offer superior alternatives. AquaGuard Foundation Solutions employs the exclusive PolyRenewal™ system, ensuring the longevity and safety of your steps. 

Concrete lifting plays a crucial role in a broader, whole-home solution, securing your home from the ground up. 

In some more severe cases, foundation piers may be utilized in the repair process, depending on the severity of the damage and its connection to your foundation. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

It is vital to address concrete step damage promptly before it worsens. Signs that your stairs need repair include: 

  • Visible cracks on the steps 
  • Uneven step levels 
  • Steps tilting or sloping 
  • Steps sinking into the ground 
  • Steps separating from your foundation 
  • Sinking porch near the steps 
  • Hollow sounds beneath the steps 
  • Water pooling or drainage issues 
  • Crumbling edges or corners 
  • Pits, flakes, or stains on the concrete 

Recognizing early signs of concrete damage can save you time and money. Contact a concrete repair professional like AquaGuard Foundation Solutions when you notice these symptoms. 

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary? 

Absolutely. Neglecting damaged concrete step repair jeopardizes safety, limits your repair options, and may lead to higher future repair costs. Taking swift action prevents further damage and ensures safety and longevity. 

Exercise caution when considering alternatives such as repouring, mudjacking, or solutions offered by big-box stores. These quick fixes are often only temporary and do not address the underlying issue of soil settlement and saturation. 

In the context of comprehensive home maintenance, timely concrete step repair seamlessly aligns with AquaGuard Foundation Solutions’ whole-home approach, preserving the integrity and value of your property. 

Our experts will assess the full extent of the damage and expedite your step restoration.

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

AquaGuard Foundation Solutions’ experts will complete the concrete step repair process with these essential steps: 

  • Drill small holes into sunken areas of your steps. 
  • Insert injection ports into the holes. 
  • Mix a two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject high-density polyurethane foam underneath the concrete. 
  • The foam expands, filling voids and lifting the steps. 
  • Allow the foam to cure (approximately 15 minutes). 
  • Remove the injection ports and fill the holes. 
  • Seal cracks and joints with protective sealant. 
  • Schedule regular maintenance to monitor your steps. 

As the leading concrete repair provider, our crews have the skill to flawlessly execute this process, ensuring lasting results.

FAQs

Exterior concrete steps can sustain damage, including cracking and sinking, for various reasons. Most are rooted in your property’s soil, such as soil settling, erosion, oversaturation, freeze-thaw cycles, and shifting from growing tree roots. AquaGuard Foundation Solutions will determine the cause of your concrete step damage and recommend the best repair solution during a free inspection. 

Step repair costs vary based on the extent of damage and necessary repairs. For example, the cost of concrete lifting with polyurethane injections differs from pier installation for foundation-related issues. Contact AquaGuard Foundation Solutions for an accurate cost breakdown and information on financing options during a free inspection with one of our experts. 

While the timeline depends on the area requiring repair and the extent of damage, concrete step repair with PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections can generally be completed within a day. Once the foam is injected under the concrete, it takes approximately 15 minutes to cure, compared to mudjacking or repouring, which can take several days to fully restore functionality.
