First impressions matter, as does safety, and this Maplewood, Minnesota concrete front stoop was in need of repair in both categories. Expert Concrete Raising was proud to provide a sound solution that gave this front entry the attention it deserved.
The front stoop on this home had settled significantly, leaving a large slope and unsightly gap between the stoop/brick. Water build-up was also evident where the stoop met the sidewalk causing additional issues.
Using a high density 3lb polyurethane foam, the concrete on the front stoop was raised 2″. A couple of sections of the sidewalk were also raised the same amount. With the height restored, there was no longer a gap between the stoop/brick and therefore the drainage/water build-up issue was also resolved.
A polyurethane foam sealant was applied between the stoop/brick to prevent water absorption into the bricks.
The homeowners were left with a safe and visually appealing front entry that will hold up during all four Minnesota seasons.
