The earth’s soils are constantly expanding and contracting as they adapt to ever changing temperatures, excess moisture, and drought conditions. Varying environmental conditions result in concrete flatwork settling, sinking, and failing, in response to soil movement and compaction. Settling creates uneven surfaces that often result in dangerous trip hazards on your property.
Trip hazards on uneven, or raised, concrete pose a threat in terms of public safety as well as liability for private property owners, commercial property owners, management companies, HOA’s and municipalities. While trip and fall hazards are a challenge to the general public, they are especially dangerous for the young, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. They are particularly dangerous and challenging for those with vision impairments or individuals requiring the use of mobility assistance (canes, crutches, wheelchairs, motorized devices, etc.).
