Like other concrete structures, steps, stoops and porches are only as stable as the support system beneath them. Settlement typically occurs due to poor construction and erosion of the subgrade. Insufficient compaction of subgrade materials is a common problem for porches and stoops. This is often the result of contractors not being able to easily access an area with the proper equipment needed.
The idea of removing and replacing settled, but otherwise usable, concrete is an expensive and undesired task. With Acme Concrete and our Smart Lift System, we can properly pitch and grade your concrete quickly and economically. We can make water drain away from your home or foundation. We also correct step height problems and greatly improve curb appeal without messy, invasive techniques associated with replacement or mudjacking. Our process can stabilize loose soils and provide a strong support structure beneath concrete that won’t crack or washout. It will stand firm against severe environmental changes we experience here in Chicagoland.
