Concrete Sidewalk Repair River Vale NJ

The Borough of River Vale NJ REQUIRES all homeowners to repair their sidewalks! See below.

Sidewalk repair and maintenance in the State of New Jersey is the obligation of the abutting property owner. Plenty of house owners are not aware of this ordinance and they assume that their city or state is responsible for fixing battered sidewalks. In most cases, the property proprietor will employ contractors to make the repair or their municipality will contract the work but will assign the home proprietor for 100% of the job cost. In 2012, the borough of Highland Park in New Jersey initiated a program that demanded property proprietors to fix defective sidewalks adjacent to their homes. Your city or borough can be next!

A lawsuit waiting to happen…

Home owners in River Vale are liable for preserving the sidewalks in front of their buildings. When they fail to sufficiently maintain their sidewalks, they become responsible for the grievances that pedestrians experience. These pedestrians that hurt themselves by cause of your defective sidewalk have the legal right to sue you since you are the home owner. There are also dozens of lawyers that love to follow through with these kinds of premise liability cases, which will cost you a lot of money down the road. Many property owners in the State of New Jersey have been taken to court due to their negligence or the lack of knowledge in regards to sidewalks and responsibility.

Your city or borough may also send you a notice demanding that you re-construct your sidewalk. Failure to conform within a limited time frame will result in fines. Spare yourself a lawsuit and fines by calling a sidewalk repair company ASAP!

Types of Sidewalk Defects

There are many types of defective sidewalks that can prove dangerous for River Vale pedestrians.

  • Tree roots: When sidewalks go too long without repair, tree roots may cause them to become uneven.
  • Collapsed sidewalks: Severely damaged sidewalks may have large parts caved in or separated from the rest of the walkway. This type of a situation certainly poses a serious fall hazard.
  • 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.
  • Patchwork: In an effort to save money on repairs, it is common to see inadequate patchwork jobs on specific locations that make the sidewalk surface uneven.
  • Missing cobblestones and bricks: It is necessary to properly maintain walkways that are not made from concrete to ensure the safety of pedestrians.
