Handling a New York City sidewalk violation can be relatively easy if you follow a few basic steps. The New York sidewalk and concrete professionals at Eden Sidewalk Contractors suggest that property owners follow these six steps whenever they need to remove a New York City sidewalk violation.
Step 1 – Interview and Hire Licensed Contractor
First and foremost, New York property owners need to hire professional contractor help when removing sidewalk violations. Professional contractors have the licensing requirements to conduct maintenance on sidewalks. Furthermore, whereas property owners generally are dealing with the sidewalk violation for the first time, experienced contractors have the knowledge to know the quickest and most cost effective way to remove the violation.
Once you hire a licensed professional, the contractor can assess the sidewalk violation and the materials that must be used. The highly experienced sidewalk repair experts at Eden Sidewalk Contractors have the skill and craftsmanship to work with all materials, including concrete and bluestone. They can efficiently determine the best means to remove your sidewalk violation.
Step 2 – Be Aware of Trees
If tree roots are causing your sidewalks to buckle and crack, you need to be mindful of the proper way to deal with trees affecting New York City sidewalks. There are extensive regulations surrounding the cutting of the city’s trees; as such, it is imperative that New York City property owners hire licensed professionals so that they do not make a mistake that results in another costly violation. The experts at Eden Sidewalk Contractors are familiar of the regulations and can help you avoid mistakes when removing your New York City sidewalk violation.
Step 3 – Obtain the Necessary Permits
Before any work can be conducted on your New York City sidewalk, you must get the necessary permits. This task can be a hassle for the property owner attempting to do it for the first time. Oftentimes there are multiple permits that must be obtained for the same job, which can cause more difficulties for New York City property owners. The professionals at Eden Sidewalk Contractors can handle the permit process for you, saving time and frustration when dealing with the already difficult problem of sidewalk violation removal.
Step 4 – File Paperwork after Completion
Once the sidewalk violation removal contractors at Eden Sidewalk Contractors have finished the job, they can help you have the violation dismissed. After the work is done, a property owner must file paper work with the Department of Transportation. Without hiring an experienced professional, property owners can do all the work themselves and still be facing New York City sidewalk violations because of a paper mistake.
The sidewalk contractors at Eden Sidewalk Contractors can walk all New York City property owners through the above steps in order to remove a frustrating sidewalk violation. With their knowledge, expertise, and craftsmanship, your New York City sidewalk will be up-to-code and will be looking great.
