Why Sidewalks Might Become Uneven And Who It Impacts

Dry Pro explains why sidewalks might become uneven and who it impacts


Are Your Sidewalks Uneven? 

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, in most neighborhoods, the sidewalk on your property is your responsibility to maintain.

Rain vs Drought 

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.

Your Safety Is Imporant

Regardless of the reason for the repairs, the safety of your sidewalk is most 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.

Often times, the sooner you get your concrete fixed, the less expensive the repairs will be. Our company has helped thousands of homeowners by lifting their sunken sidewalk slabs, repairing their cracked driveways and, ultimately, restoring the curb appeal and safety around their homes.
