Your front porch is one is of the most visible parts of your home. Visitors, neighbors and anyone passing by your home can see it. A porch that is sinking or uneven can negatively impact the appearance of your home’s exterior or even lower its value. Soil displacement is the most common cause of concrete porch sloping or cracking. If the problem is significant enough, your tilted porch could also pose a risk to the foundation or surrounding structures of your home.
Consider Porch Lifting & Leveling for Safety
This threat comes from the rain and snow that can leak down through any existing cracks. An unstable porch area can be very dangerous as gaps and cracks can be significant, increasing the risk of a slip and fall on your property. It is important to fix this kind of concrete problem before it becomes more serious. However, replacing your porch can be costly, time consuming and unsightly.

The Challenge of Sinking Concrete Porches
Over time, it is not unusual for concrete porches to sink. The weight of these elements can encourage soil subsidence naturally over time. In other cases, poorly prepared soil can be to blame, especially when coupled with northern Utah’s wide range of weather conditions.
Once even small cracks develop, problems tend to escalate quickly. Cracks allow moisture to permeate into the soil. As the dirt dries out – and as it works through multiple freeze and thaw cycles – the underlying soils can erode and heave, causing further movement and crumbling.
Even something as simple as improper grading or poorly situated gutters and downspouts can hurry the problem along. Before you know it, your porch can become unsightly and, worse, pose a tripping and falling hazard for anyone coming or going from your home.
