Cracked sidewalks are very common to see. IN fact, an engineer once said "if you have concrete that doesn't crack, you have magic concrete". What he said was true, it just happens. But does that mean it's OK?
For most of us, we wouldn't give it a second thought. At least until someone fell. Especially if we have someone elderly in our home should we take note of this.
For investment property owners this can be very true as well. Tenants and their guests tripping or falling can be very high liability.
So while this may seem like a small thing, cracked sidewalks should grab our attention and motivate us to fix them.
