Concrete Step Repair 

Ensuring safe access in and out of your home is important for your loved ones, but damaged exterior concrete steps could put you and your family at risk of injury. 

Deteriorating and subsiding exterior concrete steps not only detract from your home’s aesthetic appeal but also present a significant safety risk. The good news is that the concrete lifting process provides a robust and lasting solution.  

As the top concrete repair specialists in the Southeast United States, AFS has the expertise and proficiency required to revitalize your concrete steps efficiently and securely. Explore this page to learn more about our thorough solution that ensures stability and peace of mind. 

What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step repair involves the elevation, stabilization, and restoration of sinking concrete steps. Generally, this is caused by weak soil below the concrete or errors during construction. 

Concrete lifting is a crucial component of any home’s safety. Depending on the extent of damage, foundation piers might be considered in the repair process, especially if the issue seems to be spreading to your home’s foundation. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

Addressing damage to concrete steps at an early stage is vital to prevent exacerbation. Signs indicative of necessary repairs include: 

  • Extensive cracks—wider than ¼”—and fragmentation  
  • Uneven, tilted, or sinking slabs near the steps 
  • Significant height variations between the steps  
  • Steps that move or shift when stepped on  
  • Related damage like pitting, flaking, and staining 
  • Water or mud collecting on the steps  
  • Steps detaching from your home’s foundation 
  • Hollow sounds underneath the steps 
  • Deterioration at the edges or corners of steps 

Identifying these early signs of damage can lead to cost and time savings. Reach out to a concrete repair specialist like AFS at the first sign of trouble. 

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary? 

Undoubtedly. Overlooking the need for concrete step repair puts your family’s safety at risk, reduces your options for repair, and could lead to more expensive repairs in the future. Acting swiftly helps prevent additional damage, ensuring safety and longevity. 

Be wary of outdated solutions like mudjacking, repouring, or products from big-box retailers.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 fits into AFS’s extensive whole-home solution, safeguarding your property’s structural integrity and value. Our professionals will assess the complete extent of the damage and work diligently to restore your steps to a safe position.
