What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step repair involves lifting, stabilizing, and reviving damaged, sinking, or fractured outdoor concrete steps. 

While traditional repair methods, such as mudjacking and complete replacement, offer temporary fixes, they do not tackle the root of the issue. Instead, advanced methods like the use of polyurethane foam injections for concrete lifting offer more reliable alternatives. Basement Authority of West Virginia exclusively employs the PolyRenewal™ system, guaranteeing the longevity and safety of your steps. 

Concrete lifting serves as a key component of a broader, whole-home solution, safeguarding your home from the foundation up. Depending on the extent of the damage and its connection to your home’s foundation, the use of foundation piers might be incorporated into the repair process. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

Addressing damage to your concrete steps promptly is essential to prevent exacerbation. Indicators that your stairs require attention include: 

  • Visible cracks on the steps 
  • Discrepancies in step levels 
  • Steps that are tilting or sloping 
  • Steps that are sinking into the ground 
  • Steps detaching from your home’s foundation 
  • Sinking porch
  • Hollow sounds beneath the steps 
  • Water pooling or drainage challenges 
  • Crumbling step edges or corners 
  • Pitting, flaking, or staining on the concrete surface 

Catching these early signs of damage can result in savings of both time and money. Reach out to a concrete repair specialist such as Basement Authority of West Virginia at the first sign of these issues. 

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary? 

Yes, it is imperative. Overlooking the need for concrete step repair can lead to safety hazards, limit your options for repair, and potentially result in increased future repair costs. Prompt action can prevent further deterioration, ensuring both safety and durability. 

Be wary of short-term fixes such as repouring, mudjacking, or solutions available in retail stores. These temporary solutions fail to resolve the fundamental issues.  

Concrete step repair is a crucial part of Basement Authority of West Virginia’s whole-home solution, safeguarding the structural integrity and value of your property. Our team will assess the extent of the damage and restore your steps promptly.

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

The specialists at Basement Authority of West Virginia will undertake the concrete step repair process with precision, following these critical steps: 

  • Create small openings in the sunken sections of your steps. 
  • Place injection ports within these openings. 
  • Prepare a two-component, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject the high-density polyurethane foam beneath the concrete. 
  • The foam expands, filling gaps and elevating the steps. 
  • Allow the foam to harden (typically takes around 15 minutes). 
  • Remove the injection ports and seal the openings. 
  • Apply a protective sealant to cracks and joints. 
  • Ensure regular maintenance checks to keep your steps in prime condition. 

Our skilled team is adept at flawlessly conducting this procedure, ensuring lasting outcomes.
