To save money in future sidewalk repairs and replacement, developers of new housing developments should consider installing TripStop™. TripStop™ is installed during construction of the sidewalk and prevents the cement from breaking apart or lifting.
Eventually with the movement of soil, tree growth and use, sidewalks will begin to break and lift. Tree roots can also expand and break apart sidewalks. What TripStop™ does is provide a joint that will allow sidewalks to move and shift while remaining in tact. TripStop™ will also eliminate the need to trim tree roots or reconstruct sidewalks, especially when installed into new housing developments.
If TripStop™ were to be installed during sidewalk construction in new housing developments, a lot of time and money would be saved in the future. It will eliminate the need for future sidewalk maintenance and remove the cost associated with repairs. Although TripStop™ can be installed into existing sidewalks, the whole sidewalk would need to replaced in order to have the joint embedded into wet cement. New housing developments would bypass the issues and costs of replacing sidewalks by having TripStop installed from the start.
Another benefit for new housing developments with TripStop™ installed during construction is the fact that the sidewalk on a home owner’s street would be much safer. Trip hazards and safety concerns are far from mind because TripStop™ won’t allow sidewalks to break.
New housing developments that use TripStop™ can encourage outdoor activities that won’t leave people weary of tripping or falling when going about their everyday lives. There will be no need to avoid patches of rough sidewalk or wait for sidewalks to be fixed once TripStop™ is installed because the sidewalks will remain maintenance free.
