Contractors to fix a broken or warped walkway?

sunken sidewalk

Watch your step.

Mark asks via Twitter:

I've got a sidewalk that looks like this in two places. It's my front walk, not a city sidewalk. Any suggestions on who to call to repair it?

That looks like it could be a trip-and-fall waiting to happen -- especially as things get icy.

Got a suggestion for Mark? Please share.

Just go to Home Depot and rent a scarifier. You can grind that down in no time. Be sure to wear a mask and eye protection.

Two words: Concrete Raising of Upstate New York.

Anyway, these guys made our pool deck look like new in an afternoon, or as new as a 25 year old concrete deck can look. Excellent guys to work with, very reasonable price, especially since they're about the only game in town. Cleaned up after themselves and before they were scheduled to finish.

You will end up with a couple patched spots where they drill to inject a loose concrete under the slabs. Ours are about 2" diameter but are patched and smoothed with concrete. The leveling is done so well we don't notice it.

Just a satisfied customer...

@ChuckD: I had no idea such a service even existed. Thanks for sharing!

@ChuckD their commercial was what put the thought in my mind, glad to hear others liked their work. I've burned myself by making snap decisions on contractors so I wanted to hear what others thought.

When I used to bus-commute in another city, there was a similar smart card system and it was AWESOME. On/Off time was significantly decreased, so buses were even a little more timely. I hope this pilot goes smoothly because the faster this gets implemented, the better for bus riders. This is good news!
