When Do Sagging Steps Become a Problem? Southwest Marietta, GA
anglin steps and stoop sinking

North Georgia winters are unpredictable. Seasons of wet snow and cold are followed by unseasonably warm and sunny periods. All these changes can cause soil and buildings to act strangely. One common problem from all the freezing, thawing, heavy moisture and drying out is sagging steps and stoops. If your Atlanta area home’s steps are sagging or becoming worse, it can become a problem worthy of your attention.

When do sagging steps become a problem? Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair in Marietta shares some signs it’s time to call us about sagging steps.

Visible Sagging

The most obvious sign of a problem is when the steps visibly sag or tilt. This can be seen by observing the steps from a distance and noticing if they look uneven or have a visible slope. If you notice this, it is important to act immediately.

Cracks in the Steps or Foundation

Another sign of a problem is the appearance of cracks in the steps or foundation. These cracks may be small at first but can quickly grow in size over time if left unaddressed. Cracks in the foundation can also indicate larger issues with the structure of the home, so it is important to have a professional assess the situation.

Movement When Stepped On

If you notice the steps move or bounce when stepped on, it is a sign of weakness in the structure. This can be especially dangerous if someone is carrying heavy objects up or down the stairs. It is important to address this issue immediately to prevent any accidents or injuries.

Unevenness in the Steps

An uneven step is a sign that the structure of the steps has shifted. This can be caused by foundation settlement or soil movement. It is important to address this issue as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

Penelope Greensmith

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
