Concrete Sidewalk Repair Lyndhurst NJ

The Township of Lyndhurst NJ REQUIRES all homeowners to repair their sidewalks! See below.

Sidewalk repair as well as maintenance in the State of New Jersey is the responsibility of the abutting home proprietor. Plenty of house owners are not aware of this ordinance and they assume that their city or state is liable for fixing battered sidewalks. In most cases, the property proprietor will employ contractors to make the repair or their city will contract the work but will charge the home proprietor for 100% of the cost. In 2012, the borough of Highland Park in New Jersey launched a program that required home owners to preserve broken sidewalks adjacent to their homes. Your city or borough can be next!

Types of Sidewalk Defects

  • Trip hazards: It is easy to trip and fall on large cracks that cut across poorly maintained sidewalks.
  • Improper slope: Uneven sidewalks may have large portions that do not line up with the rest of the walkway.
