Sunken, settled sidewalks cause a variety of problems. If a sidewalk drops at a step, stoop or porch, it can create a large step up or down. This is a hazardous situation, especially for the elderly and young. It is also a problem for visitors and delivery people. Excessive step height can also be a violation of local code. This problem is regularly identified during home inspections when trying to sell a property.
Subbase settlement or erosion can put walkways under a great deal of stress. This is due to uneven support structure beneath the concrete. In addition to the concrete sinking, stress cracks can appear at control joints and other areas. Cracked areas can then become misaligned with one another resulting in trip hazards.
