Precision Concrete specializes in removing trip hazards from sidewalks and access ramps. As defined by the Federal Register of the United States Department of Justice, a trip hazard is any change in level over 1/4 of an inch (6mm) on a walkway. These trip hazards are typically caused by heaving, ground settling and underlying roots from trees. They are most commonly found on sidewalks at joints or cracks, and each of them represents a liability to city governments, property owners, and corporations according to the ADA.
Our service is unique because we use a patented technology that removes hazardous offsets in a precise and smooth cut. Many of our repairs can be completed in minutes, reducing your cost and eliminating exposures on your property.
Trip Hazard Removal
Cities in our region, after initiating an ongoing sidewalk management program with our company, have reduced their liability greatly. Precision Concrete Cutting provides an outstanding example.
The regions who have implemented our services has eliminated all trip and fall claims in those areas, which is directly related to our trip hazard removal program.
Precision Concrete Difference
Traditional concrete grinders and scrabblers are unable to reach all edges of the sidewalk or grind each concrete section to be level with the next, so the trip hazard - and the liability - often remains. These grinding methods also damage the concrete leaving an unattractive ragged finish on both panels. Sidewalk replacement is costly, disruptive, and time-consuming.
The Precision Concrete approach can reach the edges of every sidewalk and remove trip hazards from virtually any angle and at any location during any season. The technique eliminates trip hazards caused by cracked or uneven concrete, even if they are located in hard-to-reach places like gutters or walls. Our method takes very little time, providing few inconveniences to people using the walkway.
The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 defines a ‘trip hazard’ as any change in level over 1/4 inch at any joint or crack. Since the ADA demands strict compliance, trip hazards represent a legal liability to our clients.
