Uneven concrete steps can be unsightly and can pose a danger to your family, neighbors, and visiting friends. This guide will show you how concrete step repair can transform your sunken concrete steps into safe, stable stairs. Most jobs can be completed in a day, and our price will leave you smiling.

Northern Virginia Concrete Step Repair

Stairs are another area that we repair on a regular basis. Most sink from the porch, like this example, and most often there are issues with the sidewalk as well. One step or twenty, we've lifted them all.

Notice the significant drop with these steps. Also the large trip hazard that was formed on the sidewalk as well.

"Where the sidewalk meets the front steps or stoop, a lot of times the sidewalks have dropped so they have a step height that's out of code and uncomfortable to step up and down, especially for people who are older or younger."

—Mark Howely, Owner, A-1 Concrete Leveling Northern Virginia

Concrete Steps Repair Costs

You will probably be surprised how affordable concrete steps leveling and repair can be. There really is no other more cost-effective way to fix the steps. Tearing them out and replacing them would be significantly more expensive. The overall cost depends heavily on a number of factors, including:

  1. Number of steps to be lifted
  2. How much of a void is under the steps?
  3. Are the steps connected to the sidewalk?

These factors, and more, are taken into consideration when estimating your project. But, overall, you can expect to pay up to 70% off the price of tearing the steps out and replacing them.

Causes of Sunken Steps

Steps sink for similar reasons as many other concrete slabs. Often water can undermine the integrity of the soil base under the steps, causing them to drop to fill the void. 

Soil type can also play a role. Northern Virginia’s clay soil is often used as backfill. Unfortunately, it tends to trap air, retain water, and expand and contract in response to alternating rainfall and drought as well as freeze/thaw conditions, resulting in settling and the formation of voids.

Whatever the cause, A-1 Concrete Leveling Northern Virginia will always recommend steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of future issues. This may be as simple as moving a downspout so it doesn't drain near the steps. Count on our expert technicians to give you the solutions you need.

The Concrete Steps Leveling Process

The process for leveling steps is sometimes a bit different than how we level other concrete slabs. Most of the time we still drill 1" holes in a few areas in the steps, and pump our limestone slurry beneath it, but because steps can be significantly heavier than sidewalk slabs (concentrated in a smaller area than, say, a driveway slab) we may have to use some mechanical lifting tools as well. These often consist of steel bars with angle iron that are placed under the bottom of the concrete steps, then lifted with hydraulic jacks. This is conducted while we pump under the stairs, ensuring a steady, even lift. During lifting, all voids are completely filled, creating a solid foundation for the stairs.
