When Is Curb And Gutter Repair Required?
Concrete is an excellent material for curb and gutter repair because it's durable and easy to install. The trick is knowing when you need to replace it. Curb and gutter repair is required when there are defects that interfere with the safe and reasonable use by pedestrians and bicyclists, such as vertical or horizontal separations of more than one-half inch or broken sections adjacent to a marginal walk or driveway approach.
When Is Concrete Repair Needed?

If you notice a vertical separation in your sidewalk or concrete parkway strip, it is essential to repair it immediately. Vertical splits more significant than a one-half inch may be hazardous to pedestrians and vehicles and cause damage to the surrounding property.

In addition, when a ramping or depression occurs within eight inches of vertical separation in conjunction with a split or opening in a break or construction joint of 3/8 inch or more (Americans with Disabilities Act Standard), it is necessary to repair the concrete.

Why Do Concrete Surfaces Flake And Spall?

When concrete is exposed to freezing and thawing conditions, it can begin to flake or spall. This cracking and deterioration of the concrete can also occur from frost heaving. Frost heave occurs because of the difference in temperature between the warm interior of a building and the cold exterior during the winter months. If there is no air-entraining agent mixed into the concrete, or if there is too much water in the mix, the surface will be more susceptible to heaving damage because it cannot withstand these temperature fluctuations.
