Why Repair a Sidewalk

Why Repair a Sidewalk?

Why Repair a sidewalk at all? Why not just replace your walkways altogether? PCC offers a better option- concrete leveling.

Sidewalk and walkway leveling sounds like a very intense and difficult job. There are many different ways to go about it, and depending on where you want to put it, there might be different restrictions too. You might have more freedom, though, if this is a personal project for your residential property.

Depending on what your aesthetic and material needs and likes are, you will want to plan out where your walkway will go, how far out it will go, the elevation, and believe it or not, the amount of use it will receive needs to be taken into consideration. A walkway is recommended to be about 40 inches wide. Once measured, use a sharp shovel to remove sod and rocks and dig a trench about seven inches deep. Next, you will add a gravel base to the walkway you just dug up, following with a layer of paver sand. Smooth the surface, lay the pavers, and then put in the steps. Following a few other steps, remember to secure the edges and add polymeric sand to work as a binding agent to hold the pavers in place.

There are several tools you will need to do projects such as this involving sidewalk and walkway leveling, such as a shovel, garden rake, hand tamper, rubber mallet, tape measure, patio pavers, paver base panels, leveling sand, polymeric sand, and landscape stakes.

As you can see, this arduous job might be best left to professionals, which is where Precision Concrete Cutting comes in. This is especially helpful if you operate a business or if the property you own has a sidewalk or walkway that many people have to walk on.
