Improvements in Safety and Accessibility!

bullet What's wrong with sidewalk grinding?
bulletView our work
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, private communities, shopping malls, universities, apartment complexes, and other property owners 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 Sidewalk Safety remove their trip hazards, our clients reduce their legal liability using the most efficient and cost effective method available.

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 demolition and replacement, which is costly, disruptive, and time consuming.

“We were impressed with the newly patented cutting method and the possibilities for our objective to update our access ramps. The cost is nominal compared to removal and reconstruction, not to mention faster and less intrusive for neighborhoods and traffic.

Not only did your involvement allow us to do more, it likely accelerated our activities by 2 to 3 years. Finding the funds to use the saw cut method was manageable, but if I had had to come up with 5 times that amount, several of our projects would have been dropped, and who knows if they would have been re funded the next year.  Thanks for your commitment to public service.”

Over the years I’ve seen many repair techniques relative to resolving the change in level issue that needs correction per the ADA specifications. I’ve served on the U.S. Access Board Public Rights of Way Advisory Committee, the Governor’s Council on Disabilities, and the APWA National Facilities and Grounds Committee to name a few...Most importantly as a wheelchair user I understand the importance and purpose of the ADA and the work you perform in making sidewalks accessible. I also understand the need for practical solutions that allow public works departments to repair sidewalks with this wonderful, quality, and cost saving solution. The work provided by Precision Concrete Cutting is ADA compliant, completely removes trip hazards, and is superior in quality and result than other techniques...ALSO very importantly it offers a tremendous cost savings for repairing sidewalks.
