Our Services

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.

Trip Hazard Removal Programs

Cities across the US, after initiating an ongoing sidewalk management program with our company, have reduced their liability greatly. Provo City, Utah provides an outstanding example. The city has not had any trip and fall claims for over 3 years, which is directly related to our trip hazard removal program.

The Precision Concrete Cutting Difference

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.

Traditional concrete grinders and scabblers 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 City spent fewer than $3,000 to fix 83 spots. Mr. Taylor estimated the City would have spent three times that amount to replace the slabs, not including labor and equipment. The process took less than a day and a half, compared to several weeks to lay new concrete, he added.

Contractors plan to survey the entire Braden River Lakes neighborhood before bringing Public Works officials a proposal to rehab all its sidewalks. If City officials continue to like what they see, they may use this process to fix sidewalks throughout the entire city.
