concrete step


I have a sunken porch. I would either like to add a step on top of it or more likely put a concrete cap over the whole porch. It is roughly 4 feet wide and 3 feet long and 8 inches to get on.

concrete step


its rare that adding dead weight resolves poor soil compaction however there are liteweight repair mtls that would work satisfactorily - then can be placed at 1/8" minimum & 1" unextended max depth,,, they are NOT avail in any apron/vest store, however,,, find them at pro const supply houses

if you hear it from a guy in the apron store, be VERY suspicious the mtl/method will work,,, when it time to build something together, they won't answer phones NOR help
