Concrete Porch Repair

A concrete porch should serve as a welcoming area, but issues like sinking and cracking can transform it into a safety risk. Addressing these problems with timely repairs is crucial. 

Foundation Recovery Systems brings an innovative solution to the table with our SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting method, tackling these issues directly at their origin. As your dependable expert in concrete lifting, we assist homeowners in restoring stability, safety, and aesthetic appeal to their outdoor concrete spaces. 

This page is designed to provide you with information about repairing concrete porches, as well as the distinct advantages of our method. 

What is Concrete Porch Repair? 

Repairing a concrete porch involves fixing broken, cracked, or sinking concrete on your porch. This process is vital for both aesthetic appeal and safety. 

Traditional repair methods like mudjacking or complete concrete replacement are short-term fixes. They are invasive, costly, time-consuming, and don’t tackle the issue’s root cause. 

Foundation Recovery Systems is committed to offering a superior solution: PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections. These injections delicately raise the concrete slabs and secure the soil beneath, ensuring stability. 

Our approach includes comprehensive concrete lifting as a part of a whole-home solution. Rather than just solving the surface problem, we delve deeper to address the underlying causes, such as unstable soil and water saturation. This ensures durable repairs and aligns with the overall structural integrity of your home. 

We also provide foundation repairs, including the installation of foundation piers, if we identify structural issues as the root cause.

How Our Concrete Porch Repair System Works 

The Foundation Recovery Systems team follows these essential steps when applying PolyRenewal™:

  • Insert the injection ports into these openings. 
  • Prepare a two-component, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject the foam beneath the porch slabs for lifting and stabilization. 
  • Let the foam expand, filling voids, raising the concrete, and curing. 
  • Extract the injection ports and seal the drilled openings. 
  • Apply a sealant to joints and cracks to prevent future damage. 
  • Perform regular maintenance and inspections to maintain your porch’s condition.
