Sidewalks play an important role in pedestrian safety whether in a busy urban environment or a rural setting. Trip hazards on public sidewalks and walkways are liability risks. Trip hazards challenge all citizens, but especially the old, young and disabled. Decrease the odds of a lawsuit by removing sidewalk trip hazards.
Tree roots, natural shifting or settling of ground, weather or concrete replacement where the previous level was not matched are just a few things that can cause concrete pathway or concrete sidewalk trip hazards. Regardless of the cause of your trip hazard, we’ll make your sidewalk safe and ADA compliant.
There are four common methods to remove trip hazards – saw cutting, grinding, patching & ramping and removing and replacing concrete slabs. Each method has its advantages and is applicable for specific situations. Saw cutting removes trip hazards up to two and a half inches in height, minimizes damage to concrete and is ideal for difficult to reach places. Grinding removes trip hazards of one inch or less but can’t remove trip hazards in difficult to reach areas. Patching pours concrete on trip hazards and is a fast but temporary fix. When trip hazards are higher than two and a half inches, replacement of sidewalks removes trip hazards. It’s best to contact us for a free estimate so we can determine if repairing your trip hazard is an option or if removing and replacing concrete slabs is required. We’ll provide the best, most cost effective solution to eliminate your trip hazard.
