If the soil beneath your home’s stairs settles or is washed away, the concrete steps may begin to sink and tilt away from the house. Not only can this create a safety hazard, but the cracked concrete problem will only get worse and can cost more money to fix down the line. Furthermore, uneven concrete is unappealing and may affect the resale value of your home.
Instead of replacing the sinking stairs, turn to the professionals at Level Headed Mudjackers to lift and restore the appearance of your concrete stairs. Whether it’s a residential or commercial property, our team will conduct a free assessment to provide a long-lasting solution that will improve the look of your concrete stairs.
What Causes Concrete Steps to Sink?
Generally speaking, when the subgrade beneath the steps erodes, this causes the steps to sink. This is commonly caused by a high water table or because the subgrade was not properly prepared to withstand the weight of the steps. Because of the heavy weight of concrete, contractors generally need to get underneath the steps to make repairs.
The Benefits of Mudjacking
Before completely tearing out and replacing sinking concrete, contact a concrete repair specialist to conduct an assessment. In general, mudjacking is about half the cost of removing and replacing concrete. Furthermore, mudjacking produces a fast and long-lasting solution that can make your stairs look as great as the day they were poured.
