What is Concrete Step Repair? 

Concrete step repair involves lifting, stabilizing, and restoring damaged, sinking, or cracked exterior concrete steps. 

Traditional remedies like mudjacking, repouring, or replacement fail to provide long-term solutions, as they neglect the root cause of the problem. 

Modern methods such as concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections are superior alternatives. Ohio Basement Systems implements the proprietary PolyRenewal™ system, ensuring the longevity and safety of your steps. 

Concrete lifting is pivotal in a more extensive, whole-home solution, safeguarding your home from the ground up. 

Foundation piers may also be used to repair foundation damage, depending on the severity of the damage and its impact on your home. 

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Require Repair 

It’s crucial to address concrete step damage promptly to prevent it from worsening. Signs indicating that your stairs need repair include: 

Recognizing the signs of concrete damage and implementing quick repairs saves time and money.  

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary? 

Yes. Delaying repairs to damaged concrete steps jeopardizes safety, limits repair options, and can escalate future costs. Taking quick action prevents further damage and ensures safety and longevity. 

Exercise caution when considering repouring, mudjacking, or solutions offered by big-box stores, as these quick fixes are only temporary and fail to address the underlying issue. 

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

How Concrete Step Repair Works 

Ohio Basement Systems’ experts execute the concrete step repair process with precision, following these steps: 

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

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