Steps Concrete Lifting
Concrete steps can be a durable and attractive front to your home or business. Ideally, you’ll hardly notice your concrete steps. A well-maintained and level step will fade into the background—until someone trips on a protruding step, that is! Often sitting at a threshold or entrance, steps see a lot of to-and-fro, which can understandably result in wear and tear over the years. From time to time, they will need to be maintained. You may notice cracking or crumbling of the concrete, or a sinking effect, resulting in an uneven surface. Steps are quite literally the last place where you’d want to introduce an uneven surface. Even a slightly raised portion of the structure could pose a serious tripping hazard to people coming and going, not to mention the additional risk posed to those who need to enter with a walking stick or other walking aid.
Should I worry?
To keep your concrete steps safe, functional and looking good, any damage resulting from normal wear and tear must be repaired as soon as possible. A delay in taking action could compound the issue and increase the likelihood of a tripping accident. Replacing your steps would be an expensive undertaking, causing disruption over a number of days. In most cases, a full replacement is simply not required. If you’re located in Northern Utah and surrounding areas, our trusted steps concrete lifting service could be the solution you need.
Mud jacking is a cost-effective and efficient process for steps concrete lifting. Not only does the process take only a few hours to complete when performed by the experts, but it will cost a fraction of what you’d pay for the lifting and replacing of your existing concrete steps.
What's the process?
First, a couple of holes will be drilled into the sunken step. A grout mixture is injected into the holes, lifting the concrete hydraulically. The concrete slab is then leveled, and the holes are filled, leaving you with level steps, not to mention no concrete waste for the landfill. The entire process takes only a few hours, after which you’ll be able to use the steps as normal, ensuring relatively minimal disruption to your home or business. Four weeks later, you can add a sealant to prevent future cracking.
The mud jacking process seems simple enough, but it’s not easy and requires a high degree of skill and technical equipment to achieve a professional result. To make sure that your steps concrete lifting procedure will hold up, it’s recommended that you get a professional to do the job for you.
