A-1 Concrete Leveling turns a leap back into a step…..
Over the past 7 years A-1 Concrete Leveling Western New York Division has completed thousands of estimates and projects and one of the most common questions that customers ask is: “Why did my concrete settle?” The simple answer is compaction of the sub-base and the resulting surface drainage over time causes concrete to settle. That being said, the areas that have been excavated around the foundation of the house or structure have more fill and, therefore, a far greater likelihood for significant initial compaction. Excavation and compaction in conjunction with the disproportionate weight that concrete steps transfer to the sub-base creates a perfect storm for steps and stoops to settle. When concrete steps settle it inevitably results in one step being higher than the standard 7”-8” required by code. A-1 Concrete Leveling raises sunken steps and stoop back to original position eliminating the dangerous leap that was intended to be a step at a fraction of the cost and time. Take a moment to see what A-1 Concrete Leveling can do for your sunken concrete steps and stoops.
