Concrete Sidewalk Installation in San Jose and Santa Clara
Are you overlooking how the sidewalks in your community affect residents? Commercial complexes, condominiums, and HOAs often turn to crushed granite and other loose materials as a fast and inexpensive solution for sidewalks. However, these materials can be tough to navigate and messy, littering carpets and scratching floors. Concrete sidewalk installation at your San Jose or Santa Clara property provides a durable, stable, low-maintenance walking surface.

- When updating or replacing roads or parking lots
Updating your concrete sidewalks when other work is occurring on roads or parking lots is a great practice. The useful life of parking lot asphalt is usually shorter than concrete, but regular treatments, coatings, and repairs can extend its life. When it is time to rebuild or provide extensive repairs to asphalt roads and lots, it is also a great time to update your sidewalks to latest curb designs, provide handicapped access, replace cracked and broken walkways, and give the area a new look.
Concrete Sidewalks Offer Many Benefits Over Gravel
- Strength and longevity
When planned and professionally installed with a proper base by our in-house team, concrete sidewalks offer a strong, durable walkway surface. Concrete sidewalk additions by American Asphalt stand up to frequent traffic, lasting 25 to 50 years or more.
Integrating gravel sidewalks into your community in a way that is ADA compliant can be quite challenging. Because of the unstable, uneven surface of loose materials, gravel sidewalks can be challenging for small children, the elderly, and the disabled to navigate. Our concrete paths, however, retain a consistent surface over time and through a range of weather conditions, providing a stable walking surface that prevents slips and trips, allowing for ease of travel.
- Low maintenance
Unlike gravel, which frequently washes away, requiring leveling or replacement, concrete sidewalks are low maintenance. Our concrete sidewalk additions remain static through heavy rain and strong storms, requiring only routine debris removal and possibly occasional concrete seal coating depending on the application and location.
Though gravel may seem more affordable initially, the cost of the frequent maintenance and replacement necessary to maintain eroded gravel sidewalks quickly adds up. The long lifespan of concrete sidewalks provides a better return on investment, outlasting gravel, pavers, brick, and other stone surfaces.
