Why Sidewalks Become Uneven and Who it Impacts

Uneven Sidewalks and Who They Impact

You probably don't spend much time thinking about the sidewalk in front of your home. It's not so much for you as it is for the pedestrians around your neighborhood. However, the sidewalk on your property is your responsibility to maintain.

There are a few factors that could cause a sidewalk to need repairs. Rain can wash away the dirt underneath the concrete sidewalk slabs, causing them to sink or settle. In dryer months, the soil can dry out and shrink. This can cause concrete to crack and potentially become a trip hazard.

Regardless of the reason for repairs, the safety of your sidewalk is important. Many people use the pathway, whether it's to get to work or to exercise. Children might use your sidewalk to get to and from school.

In many places, it's the homeowner's responsibility to repair the concrete sidewalk on their property. Often times, the sooner you get it fixed, the less expensive the cost will be.

Perma-Seal has helped countless homeowners by lifting and leveling their sunken sidewalk slab, repaired their cracked driveway and, ultimately, restored their curb appeal and safety around their home. Contact us today for a free, no-obligation inspection.
