Sidewalks have a tendency to settle quite easily. This settling creates trip hazards around drop inlets, at curbs, handicapped ramps and many other locations. Sidewalks are lightweight in comparison to other concrete structures, and lifting them successfully requires extensive knowledge and experience to avoid over lifting. Nortex’s sidewalk division consists of three crews that specialize in lifting and leveling all types of sidewalk trip hazards. This division has many years of success and can be relied on to get the job done right.
SIDEWALK LIFTING TIME LAPSE
Time-lapse video of multiple settled sidewalk panels being lifted to match the curb. In real time, this sidewalk was lifted back to its correct elevation in 30 minutes.
The project below depicts a staircase located at an apartment complex. The entire staircase had settled over an inch, and was easily lifted back up to its proper elevation via high-density polyurethane foam injection. This project was completed in under two hours.
