If you’re a commercial property owner or manager, you know how important it is to keep your exterior hard surfaces free from trip hazards. Not only can trip hazards cause serious injuries to guests, but they can also result in costly lawsuits under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

How Garden State Pavement Solutions Removes Trip Hazards in NJ:
- Concrete grinding: A temporary solution that does not address the underlying issue and is not ADA-compliant.
- Horizontal cutting: Similar to grinding, but achieves an ADA-compliant slope.
- Slabjacking: Backfills voids or pockets with a slurry or foam but does not fix the root cause.
- Removing and replacing the concrete: The most effective solution to eliminating tripping hazards.
It’s important to note that regular inspections of your parking lot are critical to identifying potential trip hazards. Our team recommends conducting inspections at least once a year to catch any issues before they become major problems.
