In some instances, no. If tree roots cause the elevated slabs, the adjacent slabs should be raised on a graded slope to meet the higher slab to eliminate the trip hazard.
Underneath the asphalt, a gap is a pocket of air or water. Clay soil is more susceptible to voids than other soil types. Voids may also be caused by water drainage problems, inadequate soil preparation, burrowing rodents, or natural soil settling.

Stamped concrete is made by pouring concrete and then imprinting a pattern or texture until it dries thoroughly. The imprint is intended to give the concrete the appearance and feel of other materials, including stone, slate, brick, tile, and wood. Since it is imprinted onto a single concrete slab, stamped concrete differs from pavers or similar surfaces. Pavers are segmented concrete parts used to create a pattern but are not attached to form a single piece of concrete.
Every two years, re-seal it and install a non-slip substance to make it safer to walk on when it's wet or snowy. To avoid scratching your new patio's surface, use shovels with plastic tips.
After the concrete has been sealed for seven days, to prevent damage to your new patio, use protective caps or glides on your metal patio furniture.
