What Are Some Common Repairs for Concrete Steps?

Common repairs for concrete steps include repairing chipped corners and repairing cracks in the steps. Repair chipped concrete by cleaning the damaged area, placing a form against the corner and filling it with a quick-drying cement. After the cement dries overnight, remove the form.

Fix a narrow crack in the step by cleaning the area, then filling the crack with a masonry crack filler inserted through a caulking gun. Another repair is to work vinyl concrete patching compound into the crack.

Undercut a larger crack with a hammer and chisel, then clean out grit and debris. Then, fill the crack with vinyl patching compound or patching mortar.
