Trip Hazard in Uneven concrete Sidewalk

How to prevent your kids from tripping over your uneven concrete sidewalk

Uneven concrete sidewalks, like this trip hazard, caused little frustrations in warm weather, when your little kids catch their toes on it, but as it gets colder and gets covered up by leaves and snow it can become more dangerous.

Fixing these trip hazards requires getting to the root of the problem, not just grinding down the high side and hoping the low side doesn’t sink deeper… because it will. These concrete problems are caused by underground voids. Voids can be created by disturbed dirt and native dirt settling at different rates, or by erosion. If the void isn’t filled, it will continue to get worse.
