Tips to Hire a Concrete Sidewalk Contractor
Achieve Safe, Durable and Attractive Results with Skilled Installation
When choosing a concrete sidewalk contractor, it’s important to do some research and carefully consider a few key factors. Start by asking for recommendations and references to assess quality of work. Look for online reviews and ratings and check to see if they have any certifications or accreditations that show they are qualified to do the job.
Ask each contractor for a written estimate that includes the cost of materials and labor, as well as a timeline for completing the project. This will allow you to compare the different options and make an informed decision. See that you also have the project scope and contract terms in writing. Following the above steps can help ensure that the work done by your selected concrete sidewalk and walkway contractor is completed to your satisfaction.
Why Choose a Professional Concrete Sidewalk Contractor
Broken, lifted, sunken, and otherwise damaged slabs pose safety and liability risks. General contractors may not have the knowledge and skill required to eliminate or minimize such issues. For areas such as driveways, walkways, sidewalks, and ADA ramps, it is beneficial to hire a company specializing in concrete installation.

Do You Need Concrete Repair?
Concrete is a very durable material and can last many years without showing signs of damage. However, at some point, you may need repairs for your walkways and concrete sidewalks to restore your hardscapes and keep pedestrians safe.
Signs you may need sidewalk repairs:
- Surface holes that collect puddles and leave behind slippery surfaces
- Buckling due to tree root incursion
- Wear patterns caused by foot traffic
- Cracks due to temperature fluctuations
Elevation changes, cracks, and buckling can present slip and fall hazards and leave you open to legal issues arising from personal injury claims. By patching cracks and holes, replacing damaged sections, and sealing the concrete surface in a timely and efficient manner, our team of concrete specialists can keep your sidewalk pristine and safe.
Consider Gorgeous Concrete Walkways
Although concrete sidewalks typically consist of precise squares and rectangles, the material’s versatile nature makes it possible to build winding walkways through gardens and other parts of your interior or exterior property design. Stamped, textured, smooth, and other styles including interlocking pavers allow you to customize your hardscapes to meet your needs. Did you know? Concrete walkways last even longer than concrete sidewalks — up to 75 years or more!
