Common Sidewalk Violations Across NYC
Anytime you receive a sidewalk violation from the DOT, it's important to take it seriously and
start the process of getting repairs as soon as possible. Failure to do so can result in a
number of problems if you attempt to sell your property or refinance it down the line. In many
cases, simply keeping up with routine maintenance and getting repairs quickly when you need them
can help you avoid DOT violations altogether.
When it comes to DOT sidewalk violations, it's always best to handle these issues yourself as
quickly as you can and get assistance from a professional who specializes in sidewalk violation
removals. If you don't take care of the repairs yourself within 45 days, the DOT may take it
upon itself to handle the issue and pass the bill on to you, and they don't always shop around
for the best price. By calling Eden Sidewalk Contractors, you can have a say in the pricing of
your sidewalk violation removal and keep your costs to a controllable level.
- Defective Sidewalks: Defective sidewalks come in many forms, and no matter
which form it might be, these defects often present a hazard to public safety, meaning that
you should prioritize getting repairs as soon as possible. Some common sidewalk defects
include collapsed sidewalks, trip hazards, tree roots, improper slopes, patchwork concrete,
or hardware trip hazards.
- Missing Curbs: If your curb is badly damaged or missing pieces, it's
important to have it replaced as soon as you can. Contact the DOT first, however, as they
may be willing to repair this kind of issue without you having to foot the bill.
