It is important to repair damaged steps that lead into your home. Besides being an eyesore, someone can be seriously injured by a fall. Here are some pictures from a job where the customer complained of wobbly stairs. Terravance found that the major cause for the unsteady stairs was due to rotten framing. The repair was made by rebuilding the framing and replacing the landing and stairs. The owner liked the handrails and wanted to reuse them.

Outdoor stairs become damaged by weathering when moisture, expansion, contraction, and sunlight breaks down the wood and weakens fastening. When foot traffic is added, further deterioration occurs and can be seen in cracks and splits. Furthermore, stair damage occurs when steps warp or twist. Some home owners use sealant as a measure to prevent aging and weathering damage. Sealant can delay the aging process but does not completely protect against aging regardless if it is applied regularly. A periodic inspection for pest infestation and weather damage should be a part of a homeowner’s maintenance checklist.

We will ensure that the place where the stairs meet your home at the foundation of your home is inspected and protected and if necessary, replace the landing and stairs.
