trip hazard concrete grinding los angeles


Trip hazard concrete grinding is important work, and if not done correctly, it can compromise the look, safety, and stability of your concrete. The team here at Accu-Cut has decades of experience with concrete grinding, able to smooth out your concrete surface tripping hazards without causing any damage. Whether you need concrete grinding for safety or just to restore maximum function, you should turn to Accu-Cut.


Trip hazard concrete grinding is a process wherein a raised patch of concrete is ground down, making it safer for those walking on it and restoring its function—particularly in doorways. It is often confused with polishing, as the two jobs can appear the same in their execution. However, polishing is about creating a smooth and uniform surface without removing more than the smallest amount of the surface, while grinding removes multiple layers of concrete for safety and function. The Accu-Cut team is happy to take on jobs of any size. Helping level out a small trip hazard patch, or several trip hazard areas of sidewalk, we are happy to put our skills to work for you. Whenever you are in need, turn to our fast, professional, affordable concrete grinding service.
Part of what allows us to complete one successful job after another is the Accu-Cut process. To get an idea of what you can expect from us, read about our process below:

1. Initial Assessment: During this first visit to the job site, a member of our team will assess the area in need of grinding. This initial assessment should help us determine if concrete grinding will be a feasible solution or if replacement would be better. In some cases, the spot is close enough to needing replacement that we might not be sure if grinding could help; in this case, the team member will ask you if you would like us to try grinding first in case it will work.

2. Setting Up the Safety Perimeter: On the day of the job, our team will start by setting up a safety perimeter. Concrete grinding isn’t a hazardous job, but we take your safety and the safety of your family or employees very seriously.

3. Grinding the Concrete: As soon as everything is secured and you are comfortable with us getting to work, we will grind down the concrete. This should go quickly, and unless there are many areas to grind, should be finished within the day.

4. Clean Up: When we finish a job, we always leave the space looking as good as it did when we arrived. Our work should never be a burden on you.


In commercial and industrial spaces, safety is always a top priority. If you fail to ensure that your property is safe, both inside and outside, you are setting yourself up for a world of problems. Any problems with the level of your concrete floors or walkways is a recipe for disaster.

Our team can grind down any tripping hazard you have up to a quarter of an inch. Beyond this depth, we will need to assess whether or not it is feasible. If it isn’t feasible, we will talk to you about replacing the concrete to restore safety and function.

While the focus on safety may be more prevalent in commercial and industrial spaces, it is also important in residential ones. You want your home to be as safe as it can be for your family and your guests. However, raised concrete poses a serious tripping hazard.

Why does this happen? There can be many reasons. As your home settles, concrete thresholds can become raised, making it difficult to close doors without scraping the floors and making it easy to trip when walking inside. Tree roots can cause concrete to lift up on sidewalks, driveways, and patios. And in some cases, the concrete simply wasn’t poured right to begin with, leaving bumps in the surface of your basement or other floor.

The Accu-Cut team can handle these simple jobs quickly for you. Concrete grinding can easily be completed in just a day, minimizing the disruption to your life.


When it comes to serving you, no job is too big or too small for us to handle.
