Have you tackled all of your planned home improvement projects this summer? Is there perhaps one you’ve missed? Consider your exterior steps. Are they as safe as they could be? Are they creating an eyesore with crumbling corners? If so, it is important to schedule any repairs before the cold weather hits. September is just a few days away; so the time is now! Cracks and scaling can become even worse with cold weather, snow, and ice and could even create unsafe conditions. Here at Wohlwend Concrete, we are the experts in concrete step repair for Minneapolis and the surrounding areas and can prepare your concrete for the months ahead.
Slippery leaves, below-freezing temperatures, ice, and snow can all potentially cause damage to exterior concrete and concrete steps. The most popular explanation for concrete cracking is the freeze-thaw cycle in the winter. Because concrete can be porous, water from rain or snow can seep below the surface, freeze, expand, and then contract when the water thaws. This expansion and contraction over the fall and winter will cause the concrete to flake or even crack. So, if there are already weak spots, their condition will only get worse this fall and winter.
Concrete step repair or replacement performed by trusted professionals like those at Wohlwend Concrete is essential to preventing any cracks and damage this winter. While there is no way to guarantee concrete won’t crack, there are measures that can be taken such as contraction joints, sealing and more.
