Concrete Porch Repair

Your concrete porch ought to be an inviting area, yet issues like cracks and sinking can transform it into a hazard. Addressing these issues is crucial for maintenance and safety. 

Foundation Systems of Michigan uses the innovative SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting method to solve these problems effectively. As your concrete lifting and comprehensive home solution specialists, we are dedicated to helping homeowners restore the stability, safety, and visual appeal of their external concrete areas. 

This page provides you with essential information about concrete porch repairs and the distinctive advantages of our SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ method.

What is Concrete Porch Repair? 

Repairing a concrete porch involves fixing the damaged, cracked, or settled concrete of your porch. This is vital for both the visual appeal and safety of your home. 

Traditional repair methods such as repouring concrete or mudjacking are temporary, invasive, costly, and time-consuming. And since they don’t get to the root of the problem, it’s likely the problem will reoccur. 

At Foundation Systems of Michigan, we believe there is a better way. We lift concrete using the innovative PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections, a solution that gently lifts and strengthens the soil underneath. 

Our approach goes beyond surface-level fixes, addressing the core issues like soil instability and oversaturation, ensuring a durable solution that integrates with the overall structural health of your home. 

If we identify the problem as structural, we can also implement foundation repairs, such as foundation piers.
