All Cracked Up!

Many Public works departments define a trip hazard as an irregularity in a walking surface exceeding one inch in height. ONE INCH!

I once heard of an HOA that required a homeowner to replace their driveway due to potential trip hazards. Mostly, it looked ugly, but that was a legit request according to the HOA rules (safety concern).

The best way to avoid replacement is to seal up the cracks as soon as they show up. A powder sealant applied with a dry paint brush may be used for hair line cracks, (spritz with water when done). For cracks no larger than 1/2 inch, use concrete caulk or sealant. If you have cracks larger that 1/2 inch, you have a serious problem that will need a professional to help resolve what is causing the issue as well as repair the damages if possible.
