It is important to note that the City of Denver by no means has endorsed this page and our interpertation of the city's guidelines for city sidewalk. So it is important to always review your project with the city inspector that has been assigned to your case. If you have hired a local concrete contractor to complete the work for you then they will make certain that they have completed the project to the satisfaction of the city inspector.

All work that is to be completed on any Denver City Sidewalk needs to be performed by a contractor that has obtained the proper license and is also bonded to work in the city of Denver. Some instances might require more licensing. The first step is to make certain that the contractor has the proper licenses and bonds and that they are current with the city. You can always make certain that the contractor is properly licensed at Contractor Licensing (201 W Colfax Ave, 2nd Floor, Dept 205) or reach them by phone at (720) 865-2770.
