Concrete grinding for trip hazard removal is an option for the budget minded consumer that is not as concerned with aesthetics.
Concrete grinding exposes the aggregate in the slab so the appearance is not consistent (which most clients find objectionable).
In addition, grinding eliminates the possibility of leveling the slab at a future date.
If additional settling or heaving occurs additional grinding will need to be done.
Grinding is a viable option for slabs raised by tree roots because the repair only effects one slab. Concrete raising (slabjacking) would usually require the adjustment of several slabs to align with the heaved slab greatly increasing the cost versus grinding.
Slabjack Geotechnical has both hand held and walk behind grinders for jobs small and large.
