Concrete Sidewalks Repaired by PCC
If your pedestrian walkways are cracked, slipping, or uneven then get your Concrete Sidewalks Repaired by Precision Concrete Cutting! It’s important to make sure you stay ADA compliant, as we’re sure you already know. However, most people aim to spend way too much and take the repair work too far when it comes to bringing your walkways back into compliance. Having sidewalks repaired rather than replaced is the better way to go! Only PCC offers the most cost-effective, guaranteed solution that will bring you back into compliance while also saving you big! Sidewalk distresses that require correction can include heaved slabs, step separation, and paver irregularities. Sidewalk segments with depressions may also create a settled area that traps water, in which case an actual slip may occur, or it might be harder to see the depression is actually there.
Loose obstacles in the way of someone walking on a walkway or sidewalk could cause them to slip and fall. However, this kind of debris for the most part can be moved out of the way, and often isn’t the fault of the property owner or manager. However, any obstacle created by the sidewalk or walkway structure itself that is not debris that can easily be picked up and moved to a better area is a liability. In short, that means that these kinds of issues, called trip hazards are something you personally have to get fixed. There are several routes you could take such as concrete grinders and scrabblers or replacing and filling the sidewalk entirely, but these can be very expensive, might take too long, or not always be ADA compliant.
We use patented technology to deliver ADA-compliant solutions to the uneven sidewalks, concrete walkways, or even handicap access ramps. We do all this in an environmentally responsible way, keeping in mind to minimally disturb the surrounding trees or yard.
What We do:
In order to properly have your sidewalks repaired, and for us to successfully and truly remove trip hazards, we first have to take precise measurements to know where we are going to cut, where to start and where to end. There actually needs to be an ADA compliant slope of 1:12 (this means for every inch of the rise there is 12 inches of run) on sidewalk panels and handicap accessible areas so that people with wheelchairs and scooters have a better way to use this area without outside assistance.
We use a cutting method that is more affordable than concrete grinders and scrabblers which can leave the surface rough and pitted. This way, we can reach the edges of every sidewalk and remove trip hazards from any angle. Without and damage to nearby impediments, we can remove hazards caused by cracked concrete or locate in gutters or adjacent to a wall, which are usually very hard-to-reach areas.
Precision Concrete Cutting offers a far better, and less expensive way than a replacement to fix your sidewalk and walkways bringing them into ADA compliance. Call today to learn how we can cut, shave and smooth out any uneven portion so that they fall into Sidewalk Compliance from the ADA.
