Precision Concrete cutting specializes in sidewalk leveling service to get your walkways back into compliance. We all know that when things get rough enough, or your sidewalk/walkway is really damaged, sidewalk replacement likely comes to mind. It seems like it might be a good idea, but in reality, a sidewalk replacement is likely far more expensive than a proper repair with PCC!!
The types of issues that could lead to compliance fines can range from cosmetic damages to serious damages. When we talk bout compliance, we’re referring to the ADA. In 1990 the US government passed the ADA- the Americans with Disabilities Act. This Act sets standards and regulations for public access to areas to make it so anybody regardless of their personal disability can traverse a given location with relative ease and safety.
The responsibility to maintain these safety and access regulations falls solely on the property owner. 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. Over time, the sidewalks and walkways in any location, like the plaza above, will receive damage. Many times this damage will result in that same sidewalk falling out of ADA compliance. For a sidewalk to maintain ADA compliance, no one particular portion of the sidewalk can be raised higher than another by more than a quarter inch. This gap in height is referred to by the ADA as a “trip hazard”. 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.
When dealing with new construction or updating existing structures on your property, you want to make sure that you keep all this in mind. Our procedures make it so you can keep the existing sidewalk while also repairing any trip hazards you may have such as holes, cracks, or uneven paving. As opposed to the commonly used grinder, we have the advantage of using cutters that reach edges and are able to cut more precisely where we need to.
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.
