Stoop Lifting

Stoop Lifting with Concentric Piers & Foam Jacking–Annapolis, Maryland

Problem:

Backfill material below stoop assembly on the side of a bay house settled, causing the steps to drop at the outside edge & pull away from the house. The original builder of the home was responsible for the repair as part of a warranty.

Constraints:

The home had a natural stone veneer, including on all faces of the steps. Due to the natural stone veneer, demolition would have been phenomenally expensive and it would have resulted in non-matching stones being needed. A cost effective repair that provided a long term solution was key for the customer (home’s builder), who wasn’t being reimbursed, and wanted to provide a one-time fix to their client.

Solution:

Concentric push pier installation, with high density polyurethane injection (foam jacking) to fill voids under the porch slab after it was lifted back up with the push piers.

Result:

Concrete Jack¬†foundation repair crew installed two ECP model 250 concentric push piers, to lift the stoop back into place. ¬†After the stoop was lifted using the push piers, they were secured in place and the void under the stoop’s underlying concrete slab was filled with high density polyurethane.
