Concrete sidewalk is one of those things we see everywhere and use every day. There are many different types of concrete sidewalk, including:
- Standard broom finish – textured grooves are made with a broom to prevent slipping
- Exposed aggregate concrete sidewalk – wet concrete is hosed off to expose the rock
- Stamped concrete sidewalk – a pattern is stamped into the concrete when it’s still wet
- Stained concrete sidewalk – the concrete is colored in some way
Often sidewalk is overlooked because we feel it just gets us from point A to point B. However, a properly installed concrete sidewalk can do so much more.
It can add aesthetic appeal to your property. It can help people transition safely from area to area. It can help to define grass and landscape borders.
If done right, it can also add value to your property.
Considerations When Adding a Concrete Sidewalk
When adding new concrete sidewalk or repairing existing sidewalk there are several things for you to consider:
- Is this going to be used only as a functional sidewalk or do you want it to be aesthetically pleasing as well?
- Is this sidewalk going to be used by foot traffic only or will service vehicles occasionally use it or cross it?
- Is the sidewalk situated in such a way so as to be as useful as possible?
- Does the sidewalk meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements?
- Is the finish of your concrete sidewalk optimal for your situation?
