You step outside and that overwhelming realization hits you, your existing concrete or pavers are looking a little drab, if not downright disgusting. Let’s face it, most old outdoor pathways, alfresco areas, driveways, car bays and service areas are usually ‘past there used by date’ and need to be demolished, carted away and recycled.
The risk of injury from tripping over badly cracked concrete or uneven loose paving disasters shouldn’t be ignored. We are all responsible for duty of care these days.
Movement Settlement Hidden Horrors
Over the years with excessive summer heat and winter dampness soils expand and contract, they move and subside. Solid structures move then settle leaving undulating or cracked unsightly surfaces. As each season comes and goes the problem compounds, cracks and undulations increase. Tree stumps, root systems and any foreign matter left underground in the initial stages of the building process can also cause problems. Not to mention ugly trip hazards, dangerous, unsightly and a legal minefield! This is not needed, the solution is simple.
Remove and Replace
Cracked concrete and undulating pavers are irritating toe kickers and tripping safety risks and need to be dealt with. Remove and replace process can be somewhat daunting and overwhelming. However with careful planning, the right people and a guiding hand the whole process can happen quicker than you think and at the right price. Inside a week those unsightly unwanted weed growing pavers or faded cracked concrete areas can be gone and replaced with exposed aggregate concrete or liquid limestone.
