There are a lot of people who are not fully aware of the importance of sidewalks. Especially when we are talking about a sidewalk that is near a home or a business. Its job is not only going to be providing a walkway for pedestrians. We can also use the sidewalk to try and protect the property from flooding and mud piles. Pretty much effects that can come about as a result of heavy rains. These are going to be a sidewalks biggest challenge no doubt. Especially here in Jacksonville where we are known for getting quite a few inches or should we say feet of rain. If we are counting in inches, “a few” would not be the proper term!
What Sidewalk Can I Work On?
One of the most important questions that people tend to ask when it comes to sidewalks is whether they can work on their sidewalk or not. Believe it or not, there are certain areas where the homeowners association is going to have strict guidelines as to what you can or cannot do with your sidewalk. Most of the times what we are going to need to do before we actually get to doing anything else is making sure that we are legally able to work on your sidewalk. From there we can draw out some of the options that we have available.
Protecting Your Home
Not a lot of people think about building a sidewalk that is going to be able to protect your home. Around here where we are prone to suffer from flooding and other types of issues you are probably well off if you can use the sidewalk as some sort of protection. For the most part, homes that are built on a downward slope will have certain design aspects applied to them to help with running water and these types of issues. If that is not the case we can certainly help you to be better protected.
Custom Concrete On Sidewalks
We really enjoy it when people give us a chance to layout custom concrete on virtually any type of surface. Sidewalks were usually not a commonplace to see any type of custom work being done. Until people started realizing that it could bring a whole new look to their front lawn that they really, for the most part, had not thought about before. If you believe that this is something that could potentially interest you don’t hesitate to give us a call or contact us! We have plenty of examples for you to have a look at.
Having Trouble With Your Current Sidewalk?
Building these sidewalks is not the most simple thing in the world to do. You are going to have to account for a lot of things like the way that water flows through the area, how sewage systems are not set up. If your sidewalk is fully cracked or has a lot of problems we can certainly help repair it and make sure that those issues do not develop again.
