Damaged Sidewalk? Don’t Replace, Repair!
Are you dealing with a damaged sidewalk and you’re not sure how to proceed? Call Florida Sidewalk Solutions. We have the advantage of using a cutting method that is sure to resolve any trip hazards on your walkway or sidewalk. In fact, you may not need to replace your damaged sidewalk at all. You can keep your sidewalk, save some money, and still have a fantastic ADA-compliant walkway you can be proud of.
You no longer need to worry about being liable for leaving trip hazards. Our patented methods are the most effective, economical, and environmentally clean solution available. Our cutting method is more cost-effective and effective than grinders since grinders can’t reach the edges of a sidewalk in order to level it properly. Both grinders and scabblers also might not be able to deliver the right kind of finishing you need to get the job done right or leave it ADA compliant, which is very important.
Sidewalks are used by people on a daily basis, and they can pose a serious challenge for people who use wheelchairs, crutches, and other walking aides. This is why the Americans With Disabilities Act has standards to ensure sidewalks, walkways, and ramps are safe and accessible for the disabled impaired. For example, the minimum width for an ADA-compliant sidewalk is 36 inches or wider. If sidewalks are less than 60 inches across, passing spaces must be constructed at set intervals. These passing spaces must measure at least 60 inches on all sides and must be located at least every 200 feet. Not only that, but the texture has to be slip-resistant, firm, and stable, so the way you finish the concrete has to be taken into consideration whether repairing or constructing a sidewalk. The slope of the walkway also has to be less than a ratio of 1:12 (meaning that for every inch of the vertical rise there must be 12 horizontal inches).
According to ADA compliance: the sidewalk must be constructed to allow the minimum width requirement of 36 inches between the edge of obstruction and the edge of the sidewalk, so constructing or repairing a sidewalk located near telephone poles, traffic signal cabinets or other utilities and infrastructure would have to be taken into consideration.
