Cracks in your concrete driveway or sidewalk can quickly become a dangerous hazard for both you and your home’s foundation.

The Concrete Removal Process
The removal of your concrete requires a skilled contractor due to the extensive and oftentimes complicated process. Cardinal Concrete’s expert team will first survey the land to make sure there are no utility lines under the concrete—requiring a city permit if there are. Once the area has been cleared, we will saw-cut the concrete into chunks until the entire damaged pad has been removed. From here, our concrete contractors will level the land and re-pour new concrete—smoothing the new slab before allowing time to dry.
When to Replace Your Concrete
Knowing when to replace your concrete driveway, sidewalk, or patio can be a large and challenging decision. If you haven’t kept up on the recommended sealing of your concrete, chips, cracks, and breakage can occur faster and more frequently. Before you ask yourself the big question—should I replace it?—it’s important to know what to consider.

If your concrete is nearing the 20-25 year anniversary of its use, it’s likely time to replace it. For exterior concrete, the natural elements play a role in how quickly it ages, often requiring replacement sooner than interior.
