Sidewalk Damage Repair for Multifamily and HOAs

Types of Sidewalk Damage

First and foremost, it is going to be vital to understand the different causes of sidewalk damage; shifting ground, broken concrete, and root damage. Shifting ground is caused by the large amounts of water directly under concrete that can cause the ground to shift. Broken concrete is straight forward in that the concrete is chipped or split by some type of external forces, such as heavy machinery, vehicles being repeatedly parked, or other strong force. Root damage is another straight forward type of damage and is caused by trees and shrubs with powerful root systems moving the dirt underneath the concrete or even growing directly through it. Tree roots are wide-reaching, so you may have root damage even if you don’t have trees in your immediate vicinity. If you see damage on your sidewalk give a professional call right away to fix the issues before someone gets hurt. While you wait for them to arrive be sure to mark of any damaged areas with caution tape or other signage to help notify anyone walking by that this area is unsafe.
