Your home is your safe haven, and it deserves secure entrance and exit points, which includes exterior concrete stairs. These essential fixtures can jeopardize your loved ones’ well-being if damaged.

This page provides insight into our comprehensive proprietary solution that ensures durability and peace of mind.

What is Concrete Step Repair?

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

Conventional repairs, such as mudjacking, repouring, or replacement, are not lasting solutions as they fail to address the root of the problem.

Advanced methods like concrete lifting with polyurethane foam injections are superior alternatives. Bay Area Underpinning installs the exclusive PolyRenewal™ system, guaranteeing the longevity and safety of your steps.

Concrete lifting is pivotal in a broader, whole-home solution that secures your home from the ground up. Additionally, depending on the severity of the damage and its connection to your foundation, foundation piers may be used in the repair process.

Signs Your Exterior Concrete Steps Need Repair

Addressing concrete step damage early to prevent further issues is crucial. Signs that your stairs need repair include:

Identifying these early signs of concrete damage can save you time and money. Contact a concrete repair professional like Bay Area Underpinning when you notice these symptoms.

Is Concrete Step Repair Necessary?

Absolutely. Neglecting to repair damaged concrete steps compromises safety, limits your repair options, and can escalate future repair costs. Quick action prevents ongoing damage and ensures safety and longevity.

Avoid investing in repouring, mudjacking, or quick-fix solutions offered by big-box stores. These repair methods are only temporary and do not address the underlying issue.

Timely concrete step repair is an essential part of Bay Area Underpinning’s comprehensive whole-home solution, preserving your property’s integrity and value.

Our experts will assess the full scope of damage and restore your steps promptly.

How Our Concrete Step Repair System Works

Bay Area Underpinning’s experts follow these essential steps during the PolyRenewal™ installation process:

  • Evaluate the steps’ damage, pinpoint the cause, and plan the correct repairs.
  • Drill small holes into the sunken areas of your concrete steps.
  • Insert injection ports into the drilled holes.
  • Mix a two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam.
  • Inject high-density polyurethane foam under the concrete.
  • Allow the foam to expand, fill voids, and cure (approximately 15 minutes).
  • Ensure proper concrete lift and stabilization of underlying soil.
  • Remove the injection ports and fill the holes.

Exterior concrete steps can sustain damage, including cracking and sinking, for various reasons. Most issues are caused by the property’s soil, such as expansive soil complications, soil settling and erosion, oversaturation, and shifting due to growing tree roots. Bay Area Underpinning determines the cause of the damage and the best repair solution during a free inspection.

Step repair costs vary based on the extent of damage and necessary repairs. For instance, the cost of concrete lifting with polyurethane injections differs from pier installation for foundation-based problems. Contact Bay Area Underpinning for an accurate cost breakdown and financing options during a free inspection with one of our experts.

The estimated installation timeline for PolyRenewal™ depends on the area requiring repair and the amount of damage. However, in most cases, concrete step repair can be completed within a day. Once the foam is injected beneath the concrete, it takes approximately 15 minutes to cure, compared to mudjacking or repouring, which may require several days to fully restore functionality.
