Sidewalk FAQ

Walkways and sidewalks are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. When the soil supporting the concrete becomes weak, the concrete can crack and sink. There are many things that can create a void beneath the slab, such as erosion from rainwater or gutter runoff, or a tree root that has rotted over time. Dirt fill underneath the slab that has not been well compacted can also create voids beneath the concrete. Regardless of what has caused your sidewalk to sink, we can fix it!

Sidewalk Q&A

How long is the construction process for my sidewalk?
– Demolition will occur on Day 1. The concrete crew will return 1-3 days later to pour the concrete. Please keep in mind that concrete pouring is weather dependent and we cannot pour concrete in the rain, this may result in a delay.

How soon after installation can I walk on my sidewalk?
– After 24 hours, you can start walking on your new sidewalk.

What can I use on my sidewalk for ice in the winter?
– DO NOT use any salt or deicers on your new concrete. These products can produce a chemical reaction with the concrete that will cause physical damage. Use of these products will void the Warranty. We recommend to use SAND, this will not cause any harm to the new concrete.
– Snow Blowers/Shovels – When you use a method of snow removal that has a steel cutting/scraping edge, it will leave behind tiny amounts of steel on the surface of the concrete. These small amounts of steel will oxidize and rust, leaving rust visible on the surface of the concrete. This rust is difficult to remove.
