What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step restoration involves the process of elevating, stabilizing, and refurbishing exterior concrete steps that have suffered damage, sinking, or cracking. 

Traditional solutions like complete replacement and mudjacking are inadequate since they fail to address the root problem. 

In contrast, contemporary approaches like polyurethane foam injections for concrete lifting offer superior alternatives. Baker’s Waterproofing employs the proprietary PolyRenewal™ system, ensuring both the durability and safety of your steps. This concrete lifting technique is integral to a comprehensive whole-home solution, fortifying your residence from the ground up. 

Depending on the extent of the damage and its impact on your foundation, we may recommend foundation piers during the restoration process. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

It’s imperative to tend to concrete step damage promptly to prevent escalation. Signs indicating the need for repair include: 

  • Noticeable cracks on the steps 
  • Irregular step levels 
  • Steps tilting or slanting 
  • Sinking steps
  • Steps detaching from your foundation 
  • Settling porch 
  • Audible hollow sounds beneath the steps 
  • Accumulation of water or drainage problems 
  • Deteriorating edges or corners 
  • Concrete pitting, flakes, or stains

Identifying initial indications of concrete damage can be a cost-effective and time-saving measure. Contact a concrete repair expert such as Baker’s Waterproofing as soon as you observe these warning signs.

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

Baker’s Waterproofing professionals follow these crucial steps to complete the concrete step repair process: 

  • We begin by drilling small holes into the sunken areas of your steps. 
  • Insert injection ports securely into the holes. 
  • Prepare a two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam mixture. 
  • Skillfully inject high-density polyurethane foam underneath the concrete. 
  • Watch as the foam expands, effectively filling voids and lifting the steps. 
  • Allow the foam to cure, typically taking about 15 minutes. 
  • Remove the injection ports and diligently fill the holes. 
  • Finish by sealing any cracks and joints with a protective sealant. 
  • Remember to schedule regular maintenance to keep a close eye on the condition of your steps. 

As the region’s leading concrete repair provider, our Baker’s Waterproofing crews have the skills to execute this precise process, ensuring lasting results.
