Concrete step repair is a specialized process that lifts, restores, and levels damaged, sinking, or uneven exterior concrete steps. Today’s modernized concrete step repair methods utilize advanced techniques like eco-friendly polyurethane foam injections.

Mount Valley Foundation Systems uses a unique concrete lifting system that restores your steps, ensuring longevity and safety.

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair 

Recognizing the signs that your exterior concrete needs repair is essential to addressing problems before they worsen. Watch for these signs:

  • Visible cracks: Cracks begin small and expand over time, indicating structural issues. 
  • Uneven steps: Unlevel steps and height variations indicate settlement and instability. 
  • Tilting or sloping steps: Tilting or sloping in one direction indicates potential foundation issues. 
  • Sinking steps: Sunken steps compromise safety and suggest soil settlement or erosion.
  • Separation from the foundation: Step separation signals underlying structural issues.
  • Sinking porch: A sunken porch often results from soil issues. 
  • Hollow sounds beneath the steps: These sounds may indicate voids or spaces beneath the concrete. 
  • Pooling water or drainage issues: Water pooling and poor drainage lead to further deterioration and sinking. 
  • Crumbling edges and corners: Deteriorating edges and corners weaken the step’s structural integrity.
  • Pits, flakes, or stains on the concrete: Surface imperfections may indicate the need for repair and contribute to further damage if left unaddressed. 

Recognizing the early warning signs of concrete step damage can save you time, money, and potential safety concerns in the future. When you observe these symptoms, contact Mount Valley Foundation Systems, South Carolina’s concrete repair expert. Our team inspects the damage and recommends customized repair solutions to restore your home’s safety and curb appeal.

Yes, concrete repair is necessary. Neglecting repair leads to safety hazards and escalates future repair costs. Proper maintenance and timely repairs are crucial to ensuring safety and avoiding extensive and costly damage in the future.

Quick fixes like concrete replacement and mudjacking are temporary fixes that fail to address the underlying issues, leading to recurring issues. Mount Valley Foundation Systems offers comprehensive solutions, ensuring your entire property remains safe, stable, and visually appealing.

  • Enhanced safety: Elevating and stabilizing eliminates tripping hazards, ensuring the safety of your family and guests.

    Concrete Lifting FAQs

    Absolutely, selecting an appropriate concrete leveling solution for your needs is beneficial. Instead of spending on temporary fixes that necessitate ongoing applications, professional concrete leveling ensures the safety and durability of your concrete, improving your property’s value and aesthetic appeal. Mount Valley stands as your dependable local concrete lifting authority. Reach out to us for a no-cost inspection and estimate today

    Although it is possible to apply mudjacking and self-leveling concrete by yourself, we strongly advise against attempting DIY concrete leveling or repairs. There’s a significant risk of incorrect mixing or application of materials, and the tools required for the job can be quite costly. By choosing a concrete leveling specialist like Mount Valley, you will benefit from a complimentary inspection and repair quote, leveraging our extensive experience in identifying and fixing issues with sinking concrete. 

    We do not use conventional fillers to address concrete cracks. Our approach involves injecting high-density polyurethane foam under concrete to lift and stabilize it. While we do not “repair” concrete cracks, we can often close the cracks. We also apply a silicone-based sealant to the cracks and joints once the concrete is stabilized.

    Disclaimer: “Concrete leveling” means the process by which cracked, uneven concrete is stabilized, and in many cases lifted, by means of PolyRenewal™ polyurethane foam. Mount Valley Foundation Services does not guarantee that PolyRenewal™ can make your concrete perfectly level.
