Why a Sinking Sidewalk is a Bigger Risk Than You Think Southwest Marietta, GA

Over time, even the most cared-for concrete sidewalks and walkways will begin to show the effects of erosion, soil settling or other natural factors. This can lead to sinking, buckling and uneven walkways; it’s certainly an eyesore, but is it cause for immediate action? The answer may surprise you.

The Scary, Hidden Risk of a Sinking or Uneven Sidewalk

You know your home’s property value is affected by its curb appeal, and no one wants to have an unsightly, damaged walkway on their property. The risks stretch a bit beyond aesthetic damage, though. First and foremost, an uneven walkway is a serious safety hazard. You and your household may be accustomed enough to the quirks of the walking surface to remain reasonably safe, but the same cannot be said for delivery professionals, service people or visitors.

If someone visiting your property in a professional or personal capacity falls and is injured because of using your walkway, you could find yourself at the center of a legal battle. Georgia premises liability laws are written to protect anyone who could be injured because of a property owner’s negligence. This means you have a legal responsibility, as a homeowner, to repair this area of your property. It’s important to remember this applies not only to people who have been expressly invited to your home, but also anyone who arrives uninvited.

Why Speedy Repair of a Sinking Sidewalk is a Great Investment

In an uncertain economic climate, many homeowners are prioritizing home maintenance and repair tasks to ensure they are affordable. Triaging home repairs is a stressful experience, but nothing compared to the stress, anxiety and financial burden of a lawsuit. Fortunately, repairing an uneven or sinking sidewalk can be quick, easy and altogether painless.

A knowledgeable concrete leveling professional can remedy most sidewalks and walkways in a single day, and the repaired walkways can be used that day as soon as the work is complete. Using an eco-friendly foam injection process works almost instantly, giving you one less thing to worry about in an already uncertain time.

Don’t let a sinking, buckling or otherwise uneven walkway be the reason you find yourself in a court of law; it’s just too easy to address to be allowed to wreak such havoc. Call or contact Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry Repair today to learn more!

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
