Concrete Grinding


Tree Roots, Weather, And Soil Settlement Are The PRIMARY Causes Of RAISED SIDEWALKS!

GBR Concrete Sidewalk Grinding uses a Precision Concrete Cutting Method for removing trip hazards from uneven sidewalks and other concrete walkways. The Precision Concrete Cutting Method has been used across the nation for over fifteen years. We’ll help bring your sidewalks in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) with a method more effective and less expensive than conventional scrabbles, concrete grinders, or removal and replacement.

Common Causes of Trip Hazards

Concrete sidewalk raises elevation due to the following:

  • Tree roots growing under slabs pushing upwards
  • Heaving and settling due to frost
  • Buckling due to displacement of sub base

These changes in elevation causes Trip Hazards and may result in serious injuries that affect:

  • Pedestrians with mobility impairments: difficulty lifting feet, or crutches which can cause trips and falls
  • Pedestrians with visibility impairments: difficulty detecting changes in elevation which can cause trips and falls
  • Pedestrians with wheel chairs or wheel chair riders: difficulty with or inability to roll over steep changes in elevation

Keep the Sidewalk, Remove the Liability

This ensures an ADA Compliant slope of 1:8 on sidewalk panels and 1:12 slope on handicap accessible areas.

ADA Compliance

GBR Concrete Sidewalk Grinding ensures the experience and expertise to comply with Federal Law and protect your Property assets.

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.
