Walkway Repairs with PCC
Before you hire someone for walkway repairs, you need to make sure the company you hire can be trusted with making something both ADA compliant and OSHA compliant. Being ADA compliant means being compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and their standards. Their standards pertain to making sure environments, facilities, and certain other resources are accessible to individuals with disabilities. And being compliant with OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration means to adhere to all applicable regulations that employers need to follow in order to keep a workplace safe.
That being said, an excellent company you can trust with walkway repairs is Precision Concrete Cutting. They use a patented cutting process that removes trip hazards from sidewalks, ensuring a zero differential between sidewalk panels.The cut surface has an OSHA Compliant slip resistance greater or equal to the brushed finish on the adjacent panels, and an ADA compliant slope of 1:12.
It is extremely important to keep all this in mind, since a lot of property owners need to adhere to these standards, such as owners of places of public accommodation, commercial facilities, and state and local government facilities. Sidewalks and walkways can pose a challenge and even be dangerous for people who use wheelchairs as well as your own employees or any sort of construction crew you hire to work on adjacent areas. This is why it’s equally important to not only adhere to ADA standards, but OSHA standards as well.
There are options that are commercially available and less expensive such as concrete grinders and scabblers, but they end up being more costly and less clean than the cutting method. Grinders are also unable to reach the edges of the sidewalk or grind the sidewalk level with the next concrete panel, so the trip hazard often remains. Not only can Precision Concrete Cutting reach the edges of every sidewalk, we can remove trip hazards from virtually any angle and at any location. This means efficient walkway repairs that eliminate any trip hazards without any damage to nearby impediments.
Our walkway repairs take very little time, with few inconveniences to people using the walkway. The result is a safe, clean-cut walking path provided at a lower cost than any other method.
