Top-Notch Sidewalk Vault Repairs with High-End Solutions

Degraded underground sidewalk vaults are usually out of sight and out of mind! A sidewalk might not be as simple as it appears, many of the buildings are constructed with small spaces that extend beneath the sidewalk. Many pedestrians don’t think that the common sidewalks they walk on might be hollow. These spaces can come in handy to have for storage, can be utilized for both steps going down to the basement.

The space under the sidewalk, known as ‘vault’ retains the soil beneath the street, that is it ends with a concrete or masonry wall which keeps it intact. And frequently, the sidewalk over the vault is exposed to heavy traffic, by doing its work of preventing vehicles and pedestrians from falling, and it ultimately becomes deteriorated and unsafe to use. This is a growing safety concern among people.

While completely replacing a sidewalk vault is expensive, it is usually only a once-in-a-lifetime project that you would want to take over. But if the time has come during your board’s lifetime, there’s not much getting around. However, completely replacing a sidewalk can be expensive. Since sidewalk vaults are a common feature of many commercial and residential buildings in NYC, proper maintenance and repair are imperative to ensure the safety of the general public as well as avoiding water infiltration into the vault.

And it is the duty of the building owner to identify and address the issues early on, minimizing the cost of repairs.

The pros on duty will do the needful with a thorough inspection, they will typically identify the obvious causes of deterioration that have led to water infiltration, corrosion of the steel beams, as well as weathering and aging of the structural elements.
