Who Fixes Steps and Stoops? Southwest Marietta, GA
tilt brick door stoops

You have been in your house for years, and it has held up to the wear and tear of daily life well. You have worked hard to keep it in good shape. But what is going on with your entrance?

One thing that does need to be addressed is the shifted front stoop and/or steps. It is getting harder to safely get in or out of the house by that door. If it isn’t fixed, it soon could become responsible for a sprained ankle or a nasty fall.

Steps and stoops that have drifted from flush and level are common. Figuring out who to call to fix them is the quandary. This repair is beyond a DIY or your local handyman’s specialty.

How Did It Get This Way?

Once a builder has built most of a house, they fill in the gap between the outer foundation walls and the ground with backfill. It looks great. But it is not common for this dirt to be compacted before the final stairs or porch is added to the house. Over time, this backfill settles and sinks under the weight of your steps. This leads to the stairs or stoop slipping away from level and the house, and the need for repair.

Because the steps and stoop need a solid foundation to support their weight, the repair is not unlike the repairs needed on a foundation. Your local foundation specialist may recommend polyurethane injection, mudjacking (a temporary fix), installing an underpin using a helical pier(s) or removing and replacing the whole thing. The repair method chosen has a lot to do with what you need to accomplish and how long you want the repair to last.

Standard of a Good Repair

Putting your stairs and stoop on firm ground with a quality repair is what you should look for in a foundation specialist. Also, you will want someone who appreciates the finished project.

If you have a historic home, beautiful stonework or a particular brick, it is also important that after spending all that money, the repaired entrance to your home is not only once again safe but the repair leaves the entranceway looking nice. Take a look at the pictures of stoop and stair repairs done by Anglin’s Foundation Repairs. That is the standard of a good repair.

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.

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.
