Nothing quite says dated and unsafe about a house like the deteriorated concrete of cracked and spalled driveways, foundations, patios, steps, and walks. Expert Concrete Repair will greatly improve your home’s curb appeal and value, as well as make it attractive and safe for you and your visitors.
We all know that concrete is tough stuff but it is constantly subjected to the forces of physical stress, weather, chemical reactions, and daily wear and tear. Some of the most common culprits that damage concrete are:
Liability: First and foremost is your own personal injury or that of others. Concrete that has cracked, especially with jagged, uplifted edges, is a preventable hazard that you are accountable for should someone become injured as a result of the damage. Even a slightly uneven rise caused by cracking or broken edges presents a tripping hazard for anyone walking on your walkway or driveway. So, as a business owner, homeowner or landlord you can be held liable for any injuries incurred by visitors on your property. And, it doesn’t matter what the person’s reason for being there is—invited guest, uninvited stranger, delivery person, or whoever—the liability is the same. By the same token, when your concrete areas show hazardous and/or structural damages of any sort it will cause your insurance rates to increase. Or, if the damages are severe enough, prevent you from being able to acquire insurance altogether.
Property Value: Broken, cracked, and spalled concrete all bring down the resale value of your home. Whether your intention is to put your property on the market or to collateralize a loan with your equity value, damaged concrete areas will definitely impact the appraisal and lower the amount you can realize from the property. In many cases this can amount to thousands or tens of thousands of dollars which means concrete repair or replacement can offer a very good return on your investment.
Comfort, Pride and Safety: If looking out the window at the damaged concrete around your business or home gives you a nervous tic and sweaty palms then maybe it’s time for an expert restoration. Pride in your property comes with knowing your place is attractive, safe and that it assures the comfort of your family and visitors. The restoration or replacement of your dated or damaged concrete walks, driveways, etc. will go a long way in giving you this satisfying pride and peace of mind.
