For a business, paying for concrete paving installation is a significant investment that doesn’t have a calculable ROI. With new concrete paving that is aesthetically pleasing and practical, a business may draw more customers. However, if the installation quickly begins to degrade, there are no benefits and potential problems in the future.
Poorly Installed Concrete Paving
The first and most obvious issue to examine is if the concrete paving was installed professionally. When it comes to any kind of construction project, there is no such thing as one size fits all. This is true of concrete paving, the materials used and the methodological approach taken by the installation company.
Every site presents different challenges. The needs of the business and, by extension, its customers and visitors are also important considerations. Poorly installed concrete paving may not last and could impact customer foot traffic. Worse still, damaged concrete paving is a potential health hazard.
Soil & Root Problems
Soil acts as a support for concrete paving and any associated materials. If there are voids in the soil, erosion, moisture intrusion or compaction, concrete paving will suffer. Sinking, unlevel or damaged concrete paving is often the result of issues occurring below the surface.
On that note, tree roots are often the reason that concrete pavements suffer damage. Mother Nature is not a fan of inhibited growth. Tree roots are sometimes strong enough to break through even concrete paving. The aesthetics are bad, but the potential for a lawsuit if a visitor trips, falls and suffers injury should be of greater concern.
