What is ADA?

ADA stands for Americans with Disabilities Act, and it is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits the exclusion of people with disabilities from everyday activities. These activities include, buying an item at the store, watching a movie in a theater, enjoying a meal at a local restaurant, exercising at the local health club or having their car serviced at a local garage. The law established requirements for private businesses of all sizes to meet the goals of the ADA. These requirements first went into effect on January 26th, 1992 and have been recently updated in 2010. The requirements apply to both for-profit and non-profit organizations. With the understanding that many small businesses can not afford to make significant physical changes to their stores or places of business, the ADA has requirements for existing facilities built before 1993 that are less strict than the ones built after early 1993 or modified after early 1992. In addition, tax credits and deductions were established that can be used annually to offset many costs of providing access to people with disabilities.

ADA Standards

ADA Standards apply to new construction and alterations to older buildings. The original 1991 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards affected construction after January 26th, 1992, with a revised 2010 version being mandatory after March 15th, 2012. The 2010 Standards include both Title II regulations at 28 CFR 35.151; and the 2004 ADAAG at 36 CFR part 1191, appendices B and D. With a few places where requirements between the two differ, the requirements of 28 CFR 35.151 prevail. Any construction or alterations made before September 15th, 2010 used the 1991 Standards or the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS). Construction and alterations on or after September 15th, 2010, and before March 15th, 2012 use the 1991 Standards, UFAS, or 2010 Standards. All construction or alterations on or after March 15th, 2012 must comply with the 2010 ADA Standards.

Concrete Repair

Concrete Repair is a service that requires experience to get the job done right. As with other jobs, things go better when the customer has an understanding of the process and the expected outcome. Learning about the service you need performed, will help you ask the right questions when you are receiving bids on a job. Numbers do matter; but getting the job done correctly, the first time, will keep you on time and on budget. The first questions you need to ask, are about the processes involved with concrete repair. You need to make sure the concrete contractors you're communicating with understand the preparation and finishing processes involved. An example case would be the repair of a minor crack in a concrete slab, the very first thing they should tell you to do is inspect the cracking pattern for signs of upheaval, settlement or shrinkage. Based on the inspection, a concrete contractor could only then begin to properly repair the crack in the concrete floor. If you get short answers, and vague responses you might consider contacting another company. Not only does a concrete contractor have to be proficient with their job, they also need to understand the importance of customer service. If they value your project, they will take the time to expand on any questions you might have.

Concrete Masonry Unit

Concrete masonry units (CMU) are made from a combination of cementitious materials, aggregate, admixtures, and water. Materials are mixed at the block plant, placed into molds, and vibrated. Very dry mixes are used to permit rapid mold stripping. Concrete masonry units are cured at the block plant to ensure proper hydration of cementitious materials. CMU may include pigments for color variations or integral water repellents. Concrete masonry units are manufactured in a wide range of sizes and configurations, to be used for masonry veneers and load bearing or reinforced masonry construction. Hollow units for reinforced masonry have a standardized length of 16 inches and a height of either 4 or 8 inches. Through-the-wall thicknesses are manufactured to be 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 inches. Actual CMU sizes are slightly less than the listed nominal sizes to account for a 3/8” mortar joint thickness.
