In order to conduct concrete demolition, it is necessary to use proper concrete cutting services. Concrete cutting requires both expertise and the right equipment to be completed successfully and in a manner that is as environmentally sound as possible. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you employ a professional concrete contractor for all your concrete cutting and demolition needs.
What Is Concrete Demolition?
Concrete demolition refers to the various processes for breaking up and removing concrete structures of all types. Demolition is necessary when a building or structure, such as a bridge, has become decrepit or otherwise fallen into disrepair. Such structures require removal both for safety reasons and to enable the surrounding area to be utilized for new purposes, either in the form of replacement structures or making way for other ventures, such as agriculture.
At Interstate Sawing & Demolition, we offer many concrete demolition services to address different purposes:
- Building Demolition
- Bridge Demolition
- Rock Drilling
- Mini Crane
- Smoke Stack Removal
- Food Safe Environment Demolition
- Soft Demolition/Deconstruction
Each of these services is designed to handle distinct demolition requirements and situations. However, what most of them have in common is their employment of concrete cutting processes.
The Role of Concrete Cutting in Demolition
Concrete cutting is an essential part of the concrete demolition process. Concrete cutting allows for cutting into focused sections of a concrete slab or structure and for the removal of larger pieces of concrete. In fact, the electric saws used at Interstate Sawing & Demolition can cut through concrete that is 15” deep. With these saws’ ability to cut both horizontally and vertically, the options for concrete cutting services are virtually endless.
For many types of concrete demolition, concrete cutting services are a crucial first step of the process. To demolish a building, one must start with a concrete cutting service to conduct such activities as breaking up concrete foundations. Such services include:
- Wall Sawing: While this type of concrete cutting is frequently used during construction to make openings for windows and doors, it is also employed for demolition jobs as it is an efficient way to cut both vertical and sloped concrete. This option can be particularly beneficial for soft demolitions in which the surrounding environment and structures need to be protected.
- Concrete Stair Removal: Stair removal is a type of concrete cutting demolition for which we employ demolition robots to break up and remove concrete from a structure.
- Hydraulic Chain & Ring Sawing: This is a type of concrete cutting that can be used to remove individual parts of a structure, such as built-in furniture or other concrete features.
It is essential to hire professionals for these jobs as the possibility of negatively affecting the surrounding environment is very real when concrete cutting is not conducted properly. For example, if not undertaken properly, concrete cutting and demolition can produce excess noise that can be damaging to workers and residents in the nearby areas. Additionally, improperly conducted concrete demolition can cause undue environmental pollution. With these issues in mind, many of our concrete services, such as wire sawing, are designed to produce minimal air pollution and noise.
