This page provides an in-depth exploration of a solution designed to provide stability and peace of mind. 

What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step repair is the process of raising, stabilizing, and fixing outdoor concrete steps. 

Traditional repair methods such as mudjacking, or complete replacement, may not offer lasting results, as they fail to address the underlying issue of unstable soil. 

Contemporary methods like concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections offer a superior alternative. Innovative Basement Authority utilizes the PolyRenewal™ technique, ensuring long-term durability and safety for your steps. 

Concrete lifting is crucial for a comprehensive home maintenance strategy, securing your home right from the foundation. 

In certain scenarios, incorporating foundation piers into the repair plan might be necessary, depending on the severity of the damage. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

Addressing concrete step repair needs promptly can help avoid further damage. Signs that your steps might need attention include: 

Catching these early signs of damage can be more economical in the long run. Contact a concrete repair specialist like Innovative Basement Authority at the first sign of trouble. 

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary? 

Yes, neglecting concrete step repair needs can pose safety risks, limit your repair options, and potentially lead to higher repair costs down the line. Addressing the issue promptly ensures long-lasting stability and safety. 

Steer clear of temporary fixes like re-pouring, mudjacking, or ready-made solutions from hardware stores. These methods don’t solve the underlying problem of unstable soil beneath the concrete slab. 

Concrete step repair is a seamless part of Innovative Basement Authority’s whole-home approach to home maintenance, helping to preserve the integrity and value of your property. 

Our team of experts will thoroughly assess the damage and repair your steps promptly and effectively.

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

Innovative Basement Authority’s proficient team will meticulously carry out the concrete step repair procedure through these crucial stages: 

  • 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).
