Damaged steps are dangerous and can create tripping hazards. Repair these problems and level your steps quickly with USG. Our foam jacking service for step leveling is minimally invasive and fast curing, for less disruption in the use of the steps. You can even walk on your steps again the same day as leveling takes place.
Step Leveling by Utility Services Group
Foam-jacking is a fast, efficient, and cost-effective way to level your concrete steps, no mater where they are. Polyurethane foam is injected beneath the steps. The foam then expands, bringing your concrete back to level, mitigating any tripping hazards, and returning your steps back to level for your safety.
Our Soil Stabilization Services
The signs of damage to your steps may not be obvious. Here are the signs it’s time to call USG:
- There are cracks in the concrete slabs that make up your steps.
- There are broken pieces of concrete coming off your steps.
- The steps are no longer level.
- There are pores on the surface of your concrete steps, also known as spalling.
- There is visible soil erosion next to or underneath your steps.
- The edge of your steps are no longer level with the surface they lead up to, such as a porch.
What sets our Step Leveling service apart from others?
- Polyurethane cures quickly, so your steps can be walked on again the same day as the leveling takes place.
- Leveling your concrete steps does not require excavation, unlike traditional repair methods.
- Leveling your existing steps is more cost-effective than replacement.
- Replacement requires more labor, as well as more supplies.
- Polyurethane is a long-term solution.
- Foam jacking is less invasive, as it is injected below the steps.
- Saving your existing steps prevents it from ending up in a landfill.
- This method of leveling will not destroy the surrounding landscape.
How does it work?
- An expanding light-weight polyurethane is injected underneath the slab.
- The polyurethane initially moves in liquid form and saturates the voids and loose soil.
- Once it expands, it compresses the loose soil using the weight of the slab.
- Once it overcomes the weight of the slab, the polyurethane pushes it against the densified soil.
- This process is used to stabilize and level the slab without excavation or replacement.
