Just like many other concrete slabs, over time water underneath concrete steps can wash away the soil base, causing them to drop down into the space.
THE CONCRETE STEPS REPAIR LEVELING PROCESS
Levelling steps for concrete step repair can be a bit different than other concrete restoration jobs, depending on a few factors. The type of step construction, and number of stairs to be lifted, will determine if we pump new concrete on top of the slab and the surrounding sidewalk, or if we need to lift the steps. Lifting requires a system of jacks and levers to get the steps into place and pouring a stone grout slurry underneath to create a solid long-lasting base. This helps to ensure that the concrete step repair on your Chicago home lasts for years to come.

Cracking in a cement ceiling indicates that there is some problem, whether an issue in the support structure or in the concrete itself. Sometimes the foundation of a building shifts, often due to soil settling, and this results in cracks in the ceiling. Once the structural issues are addressed, the cracks need to be fixed with a special cement that doesn’t shrink when it dries. We use only the newest concrete materials developed for fixing cracks in your concrete ceiling. They are durable, flexible, and expand when they dry, resulting in a lasting repair that looks great.

Concrete Patching Methods for Repairing small and medium cracks in concrete
Small and medium sized cracks aren’t just unsightly, but can considerably lower the strength of concrete and masonry structures. For this reason, repair of these cracks is important in order to maintain the integrity of your building.
Reparation of small and medium cracks is done by pressure injections or grouting. First, critical damage zones are marked in concrete members, then they are repaired by injecting chemical or cement grouts, or by providing a jacketing, depending on a few factors.
Smaller cracks, with a width less than 0.75 mm, can be simply repaired by pressure injecting epoxy.
Before starting, the surface is cleaned, loose materials are removed, and plastic injection ports are placed along the length in specific intervals. Then, the ports are placed on both sides of the concrete member and secured in place by an epoxy seal. We can handle types of small concrete crack repairs in Chicago, to keep your structure sturdy and safe.
Patching Concrete in case of Large Cracks and Crushed Concrete:
Larger cracks, with widths greater than 5mm, as well as crushed concrete and masonry structure can not be repaired via grouting or pressure injections, but instead need a different method.
Our expert team carries out the following procedure for larger concrete crack repair and patching of concrete in Chicago:
1. The surface of the cracked or crushed area is cleaned and all loose materials are removed. They are then filled with quick setting cement mortar grouts.
2. With large cracks, we dress then with a V groove on both sides of the member to facilitate placement of the grouts.
3. For even larger cracks, filler materials, like stone chips, are used as well.
4. if concrete members are heavily damaged, additional reinforcement and shear reinforcements can be used, depending on the requirements.
The reinforcements will also be protected from corrosion by using epoxy coatings or polymer mortar.
5. In the case of damaged walls and roofs, mesh on one or both sides of the member is used for additional reinforcement.
6. To prevent widening of any existing cracks, stitching is done. Concrete stitching consists of drilling 6-10 cm holes on both sides of the crack, cleaning the holes and adding “stitching dogs” anchored down with short legs.
