What is Concrete Crack Repair?
Concrete step repair involves lifting, stabilizing, and restoring damaged, sinking, or cracked outdoor steps.
While traditional repair methods like mudjacking and concrete repouring or replacement provide temporary fixes, they often don’t tackle the root of the problem.
Modern alternatives such as concrete leveling with polyurethane foam injections are preferred. Foundation Repair of Western Colorado employs the exclusive PolyRenewal™ system that ensures the durability and safety of your steps.
The process is integral to a comprehensive home maintenance solution, anchoring your home from the base up.
In some severe cases where extra support is required, foundation piers might be utilized during the repair, depending on the severity of the damage and its connection to your home’s foundation.
