Winter shouldn’t always be the dreariness and coldness that brings hibernation to the forefront. Winter can be a great time to check off some items from your to-do list, including sidewalk, driveway, garage, and porch concrete repairs. Now is a great time to schedule your free estimate on lifting that uneven concrete, replacing your old concrete, or refinishing your floor with a custom coating. Let’s check out the Top 3 Reasons to Repair Your Sidewalk This Winter from the Kansas City concrete repair experts at PolyMagic.
Before you consider the reasons, take an evaluation of your property and ask yourself:
- Are the cracks in the sidewalk, garage, driveway, porch, stairs, etc. causing any trip hazards? If so, address those as the priority. It is a very costly and dangerous situation to have trip hazards and medical nightmares lingering around your house.
- Will the cracks help with curb appeal, aesthetic value, or resale value?
- Should I consider new concrete or just replace the existing cracks and sinking?
- What are my options for repair?
- What will this cost me?
- What is my long term benefit?
All of these questions are part of the process of consideration when repairing your property. Let our team of experts complete a free estimate and evaluation that outlines the process, the pricing, and timeline. If you take a look at our 80+ Google reviews, you’ll see many have the common theme of our team walking customers through the process – creating a transparent line of communication. Back to those Top 3 Reasons to Repair Your Sidewalk This Winter, as we embark on the winter freeze/thaw cycle.
1. Safety, Liability, and Financial Worry
Did you know that falls on concrete are the #1 reason for ER visits across the country? This is an alarming statistic that should not be taken lightly. Anytime you invite (or even someone steps foot on your property), and you have uneven concrete, you are putting yourself in a financial and liability mess. People can fall for many reasons, and having uneven or cracking concrete is an easy mistake that can cost you a lot, as well as the safety of others.
2. Aesthetics and Home Value
Nobody wants to be THAT home in the neighborhood that is looked at as the eye sore with the crumbling concrete areas and uneven stairs/driveways/sidewalks, etc. A little home repair like polyjacking can make a huge impact on the resale value and aesthetic appeal of your home. Are you trying to sell your home? First appearance is everything to a home buyer, and this matters. Let us help you explore the options for repair! Call us for your free estimate time: 816-765-4800
3. The Issue will Only Get Worse…
In some cases, time is on your side. However, this is not the case for concrete. The Kansas City winters bring freezing temperatures, moisture, winds, and thawing cycles that can change in the matter of a day. The freeze and thaw cycle can pose horrible damage on concrete, and especially concrete that is already suffering cracks or crumbling issues. The issue will only worsen over time, so it is imperative to repair the issues using the effective method of polyjacking before you have to completely replace the concrete, resulting in more money and headaches. Check out the reasons why polyjacking is the most effective method of repair in this article.
