This wooden form will hold the concrete that will repair these crumbling steps.

Build a Form

Build a form for the step. In our case, we used a piece of lumber. Spray form with cooking oil to keep it from sticking to concrete.

Step 3

Fill the Form With Concrete

Mix concrete to manufacturer's instructions and pour into form. Tap form to remove air pockets in the cement and to help it settle. Use a magnesium float to smooth the cement. Finish off with a trowel. Remove form. Avoid walking on the step for 24 hours or more, depending on the cure rate for your cement product.
