Stoop Management


Frequently during stucco remediation of an elevation above a stoop without covering, we find that moisture intrusion has caused irreparable damage to the substrate and framing behind the stoop.

Exhume front stoop in its entirety 

Remove framing below the height of concrete stoop

Provide temporary structural support where required

Extend height of foundation with concrete masonry block or poured concrete, depending upon existing foundation

Dowel into existing foundation every 16" with #4 rebar

New foundation height must extend 4" above finished height of stoop

Install J-bolts in new foundation every 36"

Install sill foam

Install new pressure treated sill plate

Fill in required framing

Install 1/2" plywood sheathing

Dowel into new foundation

Pour new concrete pad

Install flagstone, pavers etc. (optional)
