When you have a sidewalk on part of your home or commercial property, you probably don’t think much about it. It could’ve been there for years before you bought the property. But that could mean that your sidewalk is due for some repairs. There are several reasons why it’s a good idea to keep up with sidewalk repairs.
The purpose of sidewalks is to create a convenient walkway around your property. When sidewalks are old, broken, or uneven, then it becomes more difficult to get across them. That means if you have anything with wheels, from a rolling suitcase to a cart or wheelchair, then your old sidewalks will make it a hassle to get to your property. Repairing your sidewalks gives any wheels a smooth ride which will make life much easier.
A dingy, decrepit building is never inviting, which is why good curb appeal matters. Even if your building looks in great condition, your old sidewalks could be sending the wrong message. Sidewalks that are discolored, eroded, and generally in bad shape will make your property look neglected. This is bad for business for commercial properties and an eyesore for homes.
Often as sidewalks deteriorate, from shifting and cracking, they create uneven surfaces. Maybe the edges of each segment no longer line up, for example. This can create a serious tripping hazard, which should be addressed as soon as possible. An uneven sidewalk is an accident waiting to happen. Protect yourself and your guests, and avoid potential lawsuits, by making sure that the uneven cracks in your sidewalks are addressed.
