3 Concrete Safety Concerns Around Your Lorain, Ohio Home During the Holidays

Wednesday, November 17th, 2021 by Leslie Uphouse


The holidays are the perfect time to gather friends and family at your home. But if the concrete around your house is in dire need of repair, it can cause serious safety issues for your guests. Here are 3 concerns The Basement Guys want you to become aware of when it comes to concrete: 

  1. Uneven sidewalks can be a trip hazard, and sloping or sunken concrete sidewalks can pose risks to those using them. In many municipalities, the homeowner is responsible for the repair of the sidewalks in front of the house. 

  2. If your home has a front porch or stoop, this brings another safety risk as friends or family head to your front door. Sinking stoops or porches can pose a safety issue, as uneven walkways can be dangerous.

  3. Concrete driveways can become problematic. When the soil under a driveway can no longer support it, sinking and cracking can occur. Just like with sidewalks and stoops, this creates an uneven surface and a host of problems for those trying to use the driveway.

Uneven or sinking concrete can cause safety concerns all-around a home, especially as guests come to visit. However, The Basement Guys are here for your concrete leveling and repair needs!
