Replacing Your Concrete Sidewalk: When and How to Get it Done

Concrete sidewalks are a key feature of any residential or commercial property, providing a safe and durable walking surface for pedestrians. But over time, even the most well-built concrete sidewalks can begin to show signs of wear and tear, which can make them unsafe or unsightly. When this happens, it’s important to know when and how to get your sidewalk replaced. As experts in concrete services, Alamo Concrete Work is here to help.


When to Replace Your Concrete Sidewalk


There are several signs that your concrete sidewalk may need to be replaced:


  • Cracks: Small cracks in your sidewalk can often be repaired, but if they are wider than a quarter-inch or run the entire length of the sidewalk, it may be time to replace it.
  • Uneven surface: If your sidewalk is uneven or has settled in certain areas, it can be a tripping hazard and should be replaced.
  • Scaling or spalling: Scaling or spalling refers to the flaking or chipping of the surface of the concrete, and can be caused by freeze-thaw cycles or exposure to chemicals. If left unchecked, it can lead to a weakened sidewalk that needs to be replaced.
  • Age: If your sidewalk is more than 20 years old, it may be time to replace it, even if there are no visible signs of damage.

How to Replace Your Concrete Sidewalk:


Replacing a concrete sidewalk is a complex process that requires experience and expertise. Here are the basic steps involved:


  • Demolition: The existing sidewalk must be removed using specialized equipment.
  • Preparation: The area must be leveled and compacted to provide a stable base for the new sidewalk.
  • Forming: Forms are set up to create the shape of the new sidewalk.
  • Pouring: Fresh concrete is poured into the forms and leveled to create a smooth surface.
