What is Concrete Step Repair?

Concrete step repair involves lifting, stabilizing, and restoring damaged concrete. Our PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting solution also addresses the underlying issues of damage. This combined approach prevents future damage, unlike traditional mudjacking and slab replacement, which lack this comprehensive care.

Concrete lifting enhances your home’s overall structural and foundational stability. Depending on the extent of damage, foundation piers may be implemented during the repair process, especially if the issue affects your home’s foundation. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

Addressing concrete step damage at an early stage is vital to prevent further damage. Look for these problem signs:

tilting concrete porch step
  • Water accumulation near the steps  
  • Steps detaching from the home foundation 
  • Hollow sounds beneath the steps 
  • Deterioration at the edges or corners of steps

Identifying signs of concrete damage can lead to cost and time savings. Contact a local concrete repair specialist like AFS at the first sign of trouble. 

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary?

Yes, concrete step repair is crucial for your home’s safety. Ignoring the need for concrete step repair can have serious consequences. It puts your family’s safety at risk, reduces your options for repair, and could lead to more expensive repairs in the future.

Be cautious of outdated solutions like mudjacking, repouring, or products from big-box retailers. These methods are temporary and fail to resolve the root issues behind damaged concrete. 

Timely concrete step repair seamlessly integrates into AFS’s comprehensive whole-home solution, protecting your property’s structural integrity and value. Our professionals assess the damage and work diligently to restore your steps to a safe condition.
