After the winter season, you’ll notice that the concrete steps on your front porch or back patio have started to fall apart, corners have chipped off, and some of the sides of the foundation are crumbling. Add repairing your concrete steps to your spring cleaning checklist because it’s a safety hazard and reduces your curb appeal. Before you decide to call a handyman, which will cost you between $250 between $700 according to Angie’s List. You can roll up your sleeves and do a DIY to fix your concrete steps with a fast-setting concrete mix. It costs less than $10 and dries in a few hours.
This type of DIY is labor intensive and messy, so wear clothes you don’t mind messing up or put on a coverall. You can get all of the supplies you need at your local hardware store. And they are worth the investment because you’ll need to perform annual maintenance on your concrete steps.
