Concrete Step Repair 

Ensuring a safe entrance and exit to your home is essential. If you have damaged outdoor concrete steps, your family’s safety could be at risk.  

Cracks in exterior concrete steps not only tarnish your home’s charm but can also lead to significant safety risks. Our concrete lifting technique provides a reliable solution.  

As the top concrete repair specialist in the region, Alpha Foundations brings expertise and skill to restore your concrete steps efficiently and safely. 

Our specialized concrete lifting solution—SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™—addresses the issue promptly, causing minimal disruption to your property and daily routine. 

What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step repair involves lifting, stabilizing, and repairing damaged, settling, or cracked external concrete steps.  

Traditional repair methods, such as mudjacking and re-pouring or replacement, fail to provide lasting solutions as they do not tackle the root cause of the issue. Contemporary techniques like concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections present superior alternatives.  

Alpha Foundations utilizes the unique PolyRenewal™ system, guaranteeing the longevity and security of the steps. Concrete lifting is crucial in a broader, whole-home solution, safeguarding your property from foundation to roof. Additionally, based on the extent of damage and its impact on your foundation, foundation piers might be employed in the restoration process. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

It’s imperative to act promptly when damage to concrete steps is noticed to prevent future damage. Indicators that your steps require attention include: 

  • Sinking patio 
  • Hollow sounds underneath the steps  
  • Water accumulation or drainage challenges  
  • Deteriorating edges or corners  
  • Pits, flakes, or stains on the concrete  

Identifying early symptoms of concrete damage helps save on repair bills. When these signs emerge, contact a concrete repair specialist like Alpha Foundations

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

The concrete step repair process at Alpha Foundations involves these vital steps: 

  • Drill small holes into sunken areas of your steps.  
  • Insert injection ports into the holes.  
  • Mix a two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam.  
  • Inject high-density polyurethane foam underneath the concrete.  
  • The foam expands, filling voids and lifting the steps.  
  • Allow foam to cure (approximately 15 minutes).  
  • Remove the injection ports and fill the holes.  
  • Seal cracks and joints with protective sealant.  
  • Schedule regular maintenance to monitor your steps.
