concrete steps what do you think?

this guy wants these steps repoured they are old and starting to chip away like crazy.. what would anyone suggest pour over them ? or cut them off and start fresh from the landing by the door? the landing is also rough so he wants me to cut 6 inches off the top of the landing and repour that. any suggestions and a ball park price. ?? thank you.

I figured about 3/4 of a yard repouring them and the little slab on the bottom but not sure if poring over them is the best option?

When it comes to hardscaping, if you have to ask, I think you need to sub it out

Pour over???

So the new pour can crack, or water can seep in and freeze and thaw?

For those small steps, just take them out and make new. Keep it simple my friend

Pour overs happen every day and the world doesnt end, you just need enough cover so it isnt brittle. They arent settling or sinkin right? Someone just got crazy with the ice melt

Very poor RJ.

People cheat on their spouse every day and the world doesn't end. Somebody just got bored. So it must be ok to do it?

Great analogy. Remind me again of your vast experience in concrete?

I think they could be resurfaced, and there would be some life to them, but I would recommend pulling them out.
