Precision Concrete Cutting is a trip hazard removal company that uses unique techniques to correct ineffective sidewalks. The company was founded in 1991, just one year after the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which requires all buildings and sidewalks to be easily accessible by people with disabilities. Thus, Precision Concrete Cutting was born.

Precision Concrete Cutting, which began franchising in 2002, came to be after creator Ballard Gardner realized that the sawing method used for correcting ineffective sidewalks was messy and took too much time. Gardner then got the idea to design equipment that could deliver seamless results within a short period. Since the equipment was Gardner's invention, he decided to patent the equipment and created a business. 

Precision Concrete Cutting’s headquarters is located in Provo, Utah.

Precision Concrete Cutting will also collect a yearly royalty fee and advertising fee on the franchisee's gross income.
