The industry leader in technology and price, PCC will make your sidewalks ADA compliant. Our method is the most effective, environmentally clean, and cost-effective solution available. Repairing trip hazards and removing your liability is quick and easy with PCC.
Not only does our trip hazard removal help you comply with the ADA and avoid trip and fall accident liability, we also guarantee work far superior to and less costly than grinding methods.
Concrete grinders and scabblers, while commercially available and less expensive than replacement or filling, are more costly than the Precision Concrete Cutting method. Grinders are also unable to reach the edges of the sidewalk or grind the sidewalk level with the next concrete panel, so the trip hazard often remains.
Not only can Precision Concrete Cutting reach the edges of every sidewalk, we can remove trip hazards from virtually any angle and at any location. Trip hazards caused by cracked concrete or located in hard-to-reach places such as in gutters or adjacent to a wall will be eliminated without any damage to nearby impediments. Our method takes very little time, with few inconveniences to people using the walkway. The result is a safe, clean-cut walking path provided at a lower cost than any other method.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 defines a ‘trip hazard’ as any vertical change of over 1/4 inch or more at any joint or crack. Since the ADA demands strict compliance, trip hazards represent a legal liability to our clients. Cities, school districts, hospitals, churches, shopping malls, universities, apartment complexes, and other large buildings are all extremely concerned with this liability.
Our patented saw-cutting technology completely and cleanly removes trip hazards from sidewalks, virtually eliminating claims that result from trips and falls on uneven sidewalk. By having Precision Concrete Cutting remove their trip hazards, our clients reduce their legal liability using the most efficient and cost effective method available.
- Each offset will be tapered according to the specifications requested by the client and will have a smooth, uniform appearance and texture.
- The raised sidewalk will be cut from edge to edge and brought to a zero point of differential settlement, completely eliminating the trip hazard.
Our service, unlike other approaches, accurately measures each offset to ensure that we achieve the slope requested by our customers. The only alternative available to achieve ADA compliance (if done correctly) is removal and replacement, which is costly, disruptive, and time consuming.
