Average Cost of Professionally Repairing a Patio or Walkway
If you want to have a rough estimate of potential repair for a damaged patio or walkway, it is important to note that no two projects are the same. However, you can expect the average repair to fall within the range of $1,274 and $1,828.
Demolishing and Removing Damaged Patios or Walkways
One big thing to keep in mind is that if there is significant damage done to the patio, you may need to remove the entire concrete slab which was poured initially. This is a big, labor-intensive job, and it is not something that most homeowners would want to tackle as a DIY project. Even with a jackhammer designed for breaking up concrete, it could take several days to break apart and haul away. Hiring a professional to do the job can cost anywhere from $890 to $1,895 to demolish and remove the slab, and then you can start over with a new design entirely.
Factors Influencing the Cost of Repair
Aside from needing to demolish and replace a severely damaged patio or walkway, there are several key factors that can influence the total cost. A small crack, for example, can be filled in with epoxy and may take less than an hour. A sunken patio, on the other hand, requires bricks to be removed and the sunken area be to filled in with sand. Finally, the total size of the project will dictate how long it takes to complete and what the total cost of the repair is for the homeowner.
