Repair Crumbling Concrete Pool Stairs
LESLIE: Rose in Pennsylvania needs some help with a concrete situation. What’s going on?
ROSE: Hi, I have an old house and the steps going down to the pool are concrete but are falling apart. Do I have to dig them all back up and put new in or is there some way I can repair them to make them look good?
TOM: Well, I think you definitely can repair them. Is the concrete surface deteriorated?
TOM: OK. You can use an epoxy patching compound …
ROSE: … OK.
TOM: … and basically recoat those and sort of build out all the deteriorated sort of pitted areas.
TOM: You can buy epoxy patching compounds at home centers or you can buy it online. There’s a good industrial website that sells products for the home as well, called Abatron. They have a great line, very extensive line of concrete repair products there.
ROSE: Thank you very much for your help.
TOM: You’re welcome, Rose. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
