Walks are the pathways that lead to and from your front and back doors as well as garden paths that meander through your flower beds or around your garage. Walks are commonly made of poured concrete, stone, slate or brick. Garden paths are also made of round concrete "stones," mulch and even recycled tires.

Sidewalk Settlement

Tree roots and settling earth can wreak havoc on the walkways around your house. Bricks and stones that, over time, jut out or cause an indentation can be a tripping hazard. In addition, concrete walks that are poured incorrectly will crack with temperature changes throughout the year, another potential tripping hazard. Some walkways have inclines or steps that require handrails. A home inspector will also make sure these are secure and installed at the proper height.
