Sidewalk Replaced? Fix it instead!

Your first reaction to a broken sidewalk might be to have your sidewalk replaced. Fix it instead, with precision concrete Cutting! We aren’t saying you shouldn’t do anything about a broken sidewalk. There are many reasons why you’d want to replace it, all we’re saying is there’s a better way!

The biggest reason to have your sidewalk in working order is because of the ADA. In 1990 the US government passed the ADA- the Americans with Disabilities Act. This was done to protect the disabled, or travel impaired by creating regulations that hold property owners accountable for ensuring safe means of passage for the aforementioned disabled peoples.

It is your job as a property owner or manager, and your responsibility, to ensure ADA compliance is met. For instance, the owner of a Plaza that has within it several stores- is likely responsible for maintaining the integrity of the walkways in and around the plaza- not necessarily any ADA compliance issues within the individual stores inside the plaza. What this means is any damaged pedestrian areas need to be rectified by whoever is specifically responsible for the section of property they’re on.

While it might seem like having your sidewalk replaced is a surefire way to resolve the issue, it’s far more expensive than just having it fixed.

In the plaza example above, the owner of this plaza will have to be aware of the fact that over time, the sidewalks and walkways will receive damage. and eventually, portions of them will likely fall out of ADA compliance. In order to fall within ADA compliance, no one particular portion of the sidewalk can be raised higher than another by more than a quarter inch. This height differential is known as a “trip hazard” according to the ADA rules. Trip Hazards have to be dealt with relatively quickly or somebody could get seriously hurt. Any injuries or complications that result from a trip hazard would be the responsibility of the property owner. Therefore, if your walkways have trip hazards, it’s time to look into an affordable sidewalk repair solution.

It used to be that you needed to completely remove sidewalk tiles when trip hazards became an issue, investing in expensive replacements.

We can completely repair the trip hazard, using an advanced cutting method that smoothes out the gap between the sidewalk tiles, creating a smooth transition that falls into ADA compliance.
