Walkway Cracks Fixed by FSS
Walkway cracks are every property manager’s nightmare as they can turn a small problem into a big liability issue. They, unfortunately, happen for various reasons, so they need to be dealt with accordingly. For example, when concrete dries, it shrinks a little, causing it to crack. This is actually why a builder will make lines (or, contraction joints) in a sidewalk to prevent walkway cracks to occur in random spots.
Builders will place contraction joints in fresh concrete with saws, special grooving tools or plastic strips called zip-strips. They have to make sure that the joints are deep enough and placed in fresh concrete before the concrete dries and has a chance to create its own joints, which would be considered cracks.
Regardless of why a walkway cracks, whoever is responsible for repairs after it is built needs to take into effect how some damages to sidewalks will affect the people who use it. They can become trip hazards and therefore have to be dealt with as soon as possible. Getting these trip hazards fixed, as opposed to replacing the walkways altogether, is cost effective, safe, and even environmentally responsible.
Florida Sidewalk Solutions provides a patented engineering process that leaves a clean and fast attractive finish to your sidewalk. The advantages of using our services includes our effective cutting method which not only gives your walkway an ADA compliant slope, but it won’t leave scarring or rough surfaces. Concrete grinders and scabblers might be less expensive than replacement, but they’re more costly than our cutting method. Grinders are also unable to reach the edges of the sidewalk effectively enough to remove the trip hazard.

In order to get the job done to our clients’ standards, a trip hazard specialist will take very precise measurements to know exactly where to start and end the cut. You can rest assured our trained professionals will get the job done without any damage to nearby impediments. It also takes very little time with few inconveniences or disturbances to people using the walkway, the surrounding trees, yard, sprinklers, or landscaping.
