Your Sidewalk Contractors questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to repair a sidewalk?

Sidewalk repairs cost from $1 to $3 per square foot for minor repairs to fix small cracks, chips, or pits less than 2 inches deep. Contractors or skilled DIYers use caulking, grinding, or sealing to fix these minor repairs.

Moderate repairs cost $3 to $8 per square foot to fix cracks, uneven sections, or deterioration over 2 inches deep. These repairs often involve resurfacing or leveling and mudjacking methods.

Major sidewalk repairs cost $10 to $25 per square footor more. These repairs often require the removal and replacement of severely damaged or deteriorated sidewalk sections.

Who is responsible for sidewalk repair?

Property owners are typically responsible for repairing and maintaining public sidewalks that border their properties in many cities and municipalities. This responsibility often includes addressing issues like trip hazards, uneven slopes, cracks, loose concrete, snow or ice accumulation, and overgrown vegetation.

The specifics can vary depending on local laws and regulations, with some cities shifting responsibility to property owners through ordinances or ballot initiatives, while others may still hold the city accountable for sidewalk maintenance. Ultimately, property owners must be aware of their local regulations and promptly address any sidewalk damage to avoid potential liabilities or fines.

Can I repair my own sidewalk?

A skilled DIYer with the proper tools and materials can often perform minor repairs, such as filling cracks or caulking. There are concrete patch products you can buy at hardware stores and home improvement centers to fix small cracks and chips.

However, hiring a contractor for larger repairs, concrete replacement, or leveling work is best as they have the proper equipment and expertise.

How do you fix a broken sidewalk?

When fixing a broken sidewalk, the contractor first assesses the damage to determine if the entire slab needs to be replaced or if a localized repair is sufficient. They will check for issues like cracks, holes, uneven settling, and trip hazards.

If it's a minor repair, the contractor may chisel out the damaged area, clean it thoroughly, and then apply a concrete patching compound. The patch is then smoothed out and allowed to cure.

For more extensive damage, the contractor may need to demolish and remove the entire broken slab. This is done by breaking the concrete into manageable pieces that can be hauled away, then preparing and pouring new concrete.

How often should I seal my concrete sidewalk?

Regularly sealing your concrete sidewalk is an inexpensive way to extend its lifespan and keep it looking its best. Resealing is much cheaper than having to replace damaged concrete. Generally speaking, you should seal your concrete sidewalk every 2 to 3 years to protect it from damage and keep it looking its best.

The exact frequency depends on a few factors, such as your location, climate, and the type of sealer used. Sidewalks in high-traffic areas or exposed to harsh weather may need more frequent sealing. Concrete is more prone to cracking and degradation in areas with extreme temperatures, freezing/thawing cycles, or heavy precipitation. Also, acrylic sealers require more frequent applications than penetrating sealers.

How do I choose a sidewalk contractor?

Follow these suggestions to find a qualified sidewalk contractor near you:

  • Be upfront: Clearly explain the project and budget range from the start to get targeted estimates.
  • Do your research: Understand common repair materials in your area and their pros and cons to better evaluate quotes.
  • Check online reviews: Look for contractors with positive reviews on platforms like HomeGuide and Google.
  • Get multiple estimates: Request 3 to 5 estimates to compare pricing, services, and identify any red flags.
  • Schedule site visits: Allow contractors to assess the damage for a more accurate estimate.
  • Understand the costs: Ask for a breakdown of estimated costs (labor, materials, permits).
  • Timeline and warranty: Inquire about the project timeline and the warranty offered on the work.
  • Ask questions: Discuss the repair process, materials, and the contractor's experience with similar projects.
  • Compare carefully: Consider not just price, but also experience, communication style, and project timeline when choosing a contractor.

What questions should I ask a sidewalk contractor?

Before signing a contract or starting any sidewalk repairs, as the contractor these important questions:

  • How long have you been repairing sidewalks?
  • Can you show examples of similar sidewalk repairs you've completed?
  • Are you licensed and insured to operate in my area?
  • What's your plan for fixing the sidewalk?
  • What materials do you suggest for the repair and why are they best?
  • Will permits be needed? If so, will you handle obtaining them?
  • How long do you estimate the repairs to take?
  • Will the sidewalk be usable during construction?
  • Can you provide a detailed breakdown of the estimated project costs?
  • When will payments be due throughout the project?
  • Do you offer a warranty on your work? If so, what's covered and for how long?
  • Can you provide references from past clients I can contact?
