What is Concrete Step Repair?

Concrete step repair involves using a specialized material, injected or poured, to restore and reinforce cracked, sinking, or damaged concrete, resulting in a more stable and level surface.

Our PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting method lifts and levels concrete while addressing the underlying problems. This approach is essential for damage prevention, as traditional repair methods like mudjacking and slab replacement do not provide this care. Our technique is part of a comprehensive whole-home solution that fortifies your home from the ground up. 

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

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

Addressing concrete step damage promptly prevents further damage. Signs indicating the need for repair include:

  • Settling porch 
  • Audible hollow sounds beneath the steps 
  • Water accumulation or drainage problems 
  • Deteriorating step edges or corners 
  • Concrete pitting, flakes, or stains

Identifying concrete damage is a cost-effective and time-saving measure. Contact your local concrete repair expert when you observe these warning signs.

When considering options like repouring or using DIY solutions from major retail sources, it’s important to be cautious. These quick fixes often provide temporary relief but fail to address the underlying issues.

Baker’s Waterproofing polyurethane concrete lifting injections restore, preserve, and enhance your home’s safety, curb appeal, and value. Our exclusive approach treats the cosmetic and underlying issues, providing long-lasting, reliable results.

  • We drill small holes into the sunken concrete areas. 
  • Insert injection ports securely into the holes. 
  • Prepare a two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam mixture. 
  • Skillfully inject high-density polyurethane foam beneath the concrete. 
  • Watch the foam expand, fill voids, and lift the steps.
  • The foam cures in 15 minutes. 
  • Remove injection ports and fill the holes. 
  • Seal cracks and joints with a protective sealant. 
  • Schedule regular maintenance to maintain optimal results.

    Concrete Lifting FAQs

    Outdoor concrete steps experience various forms of damage, such as cracking and sinking, often due to factors related to your property’s soil. These can include soil settlement, erosion, oversaturation, freeze-thaw cycles, and displacement caused by growing tree roots. Baker’s Waterproofing conducts a complimentary inspection to identify the cause of your concrete step damage and recommend the most effective repair solution. 

    The cost of concrete step repair varies based on the level of damage and the required repairs. For instance, the expense of concrete lifting using polyurethane injections may differ from the cost of foundation pier installation. Contact Baker’s Waterproofing for a precise cost breakdown and explore financing options during a free consultation. 

    The duration of concrete step repair with PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections varies based on the specific repair area and the extent of damage. Typically, the process can be completed in one day. After the foam is injected beneath the concrete, it requires 15 minutes to cure. This is significantly quicker compared to mudjacking and concrete repour, which may require several days to regain full functionality. Contact Baker’s Waterproofing to schedule a complimentary inspection.
