What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step repair is the process of lifting, stabilizing, and restoring damaged, sinking, or cracked exterior concrete steps.  

Traditional repairs, including mudjacking and repouring or replacement, are not long-term solutions, as they fail to address the cause of the problem. 

Modern methods like concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections are better alternatives. Ohio Basement Authority uses the exclusive PolyRenewal™ system, which ensures the steps’ longevity and safety. 

Concrete lifting plays a pivotal role in a more extensive, whole-home solution, securing your home from the ground up. 

Additionally, foundation piers may be utilized in the repair process, depending on the severity of the damage and its connection to your foundation. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

It’s crucial to address concrete step damage early before it worsens. Signs that your stairs need repair include: 

  • Visible cracks on the steps 
  • Uneven step levels 
  • Steps tilting or sloping 
  • Steps sinking into the ground 
  • Steps separating from your foundation 
  • Sinking porch 
  • Hollow sounds beneath the steps 
  • Pooling water or drainage issues 
  • Crumbling edges or corners 
  • Pits, flakes, or stains on the concrete 

Recognizing early signs of concrete damage can save you time and money. Contact a concrete repair professional like Ohio Basement Authority when you notice these symptoms. 

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary? 

Absolutely. Neglecting damaged concrete step repair compromises safety, limits your repair options, and can escalate future repair costs. Taking quick action prevents further damage and ensures safety and longevity. 

Be careful when considering repouring, mudjacking, or solutions offered by big-box stores. These quick fixes are only temporary and do not address the underlying issue. 

In the broader context of home maintenance, timely concrete step repair fits perfectly into Ohio Basement Authority’s comprehensive whole-home solution, preserving the integrity and value of your property. 

Our experts will determine the full scope of damage and restore your steps as soon as possible.

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

Ohio Basement Authority’s experts will complete the concrete step repair process with these essential 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. 

As the leading concrete repair provider, our crews have the skill to flawlessly execute this process, ensuring lasting results.

Exterior concrete steps can sustain damage, including cracking and sinking, for many reasons. Most are rooted in your property’s soil, such as soil settling and erosion, oversaturation, freeze-thaw cycles, and shifting from growing tree roots.

Step repair costs range based on the extent of damage and necessary repairs. For example, the price of concrete lifting with polyurethane injections differs from pier installation for foundation-based problems.

While the timeline depends on the area requiring repair and the amount of damage, concrete step repair with PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections can generally be completed within a day.
