We’ll build you smooth, strong concrete sidewalks that minimize cracking and outlast the competition.
Sidewalks and walkways are a ubiquitous and necessary element of our modern society. They build the pedestrian infrastructure in our suburban neighborhoods and in our downtown cities. They’re in front of our own front doors and around our businesses and recreational areas. It’s essential that your concrete walkway installation is done correctly not only for the aesthetic appeal, but for the longevity of the materials and the safety of the people who walk upon it.
Sidewalk and walkway installation and repair jobs can range from only a handful of square feet up to longer, wider projects that stretch whole city blocks. Whatever job you have in mind, residential or commercial, Knox Concrete Contractors are the ones to get the work done.
Our company has been serving the Knoxville region for years and because of that experience, we know it takes a special approach and skill level to correctly complete a poured concrete sidewalk. New sidewalk and walkway construction poses a unique challenge. Not only must your contractor be skilled in the pouring and setting of concrete, but they also must have an extensive knowledge of soil compositions and vegetation that will be underneath and alongside the new concrete.
Because sidewalks and walkways are typically longer, poured thinner than a road or a foundation, they require extra attention to detail. Workers must understand how the soil will behave under the walkway, how vegetation growth may displace and damage the walkway over time, and how weather fluctuations affect the concrete. One way to combat this is to strategically placed joints must be placed within your walkway to allow for natural expansion and contraction that will happen. You can rest assured that our team has the skill set to tackle such projects.
In addition to new installation we also serve as a sidewalk repair company and can help you with an existing sidewalk or walkway in any condition of disrepair. Once we have provided you with a free consultation, we will work with you to determine the best course of action for repair. If the damage is not too extensive and consists mostly of small cracks, chips, or discoloration, we should be able resurface and reseal the concrete and bring new life and years to it. This is a great choice for someone on a budget who’s also conscious of the fact that repairing now will save money down the line.
If a more extensive repair job is necessary, we may suggest demolishing and removing certain sections of the existing walkway and replacing those with newly poured concrete, while simply resurfacing the other sections so that the entire finished product is cohesive. Whatever your needs, you can depend on us to give honest advice and recommendation based on our extensive knowledge and experience in the field.
