As a NYC property owner, you’re responsible for maintaining the sidewalks at your buildings. And while it might seem like the walkways in front of your property should last forever, the truth is like everything else, they will wear out. In fact, most concrete pedestrian paths will last between 30 and 100 years.
And no matter what, at some point, whether it’s a business or a residence, you’re going to be faced with the prospect of replacing your NYC sidewalk. Because if you don’t, you could wind up amassing large DOT fines, not to mention potential lawsuits from anyone who trips or falls and injures themselves on any damage to your sidewalks.
That’s why, to prevent the worst-case scenario from happening, you need the help of the sidewalk replacement contractors at Native Sidewalk Repair NYC. We have years of experience repairing and replacing sidewalks and curbs throughout New York City and beyond.
There’s no way to prevent damage to your walkways, but what causes it? The most common factors that contribute to it include:
You may have noticed damage to your walkway, but how do you know whether you need minor sidewalk repairs like sidewalk patchwork, or if you need full sidewalk replacement?
If any of the above apply to your home or business, it’s time to get proactive about replacing your sidewalks. Furthermore, once the DOT issues notice to repair your walkways, you only have 75 days to comply.
Over time, the sidewalks adjacent to your home or business will start to show obvious signs of wear and tear. Everything from the weather to tree roots can create all kinds of damage that pose safety hazards to pedestrian traffic in front of your building or buildings. That damage can result in injuries to people passing by or entering and leaving your property; not to mention DOT violations and fines.
Plus, irreparable damage to your walkways creates an eyesore that lowers property values and impedes your ability to sell or refinance your home or business.
