Concrete Cutting Only: What Is Involved In This Singular Service


When a concrete contractor advertises that the only service he/she provides is concrete cutting, you may be wondering why, when, and where this service is used. It makes sense, considering that so many other contractors provide niche services. Why not provide cutting only? To get a better understanding of this singular service overall and the reason and function behind its use, the following is provided. 

Why Just Cutting and Removal

There is a lot of work involved in cutting and removing concrete. It is hot, sweaty work because the crew is outside all day, leaning over slabs of broken concrete and asphalt and slicing through it with a saw. Cutting is followed by lifting, removing, and placing the chunks in a dump truck. The dump truck then has to take the concrete away. A single strip mall parking lot could take most of a single day to remove its concrete and asphalt, and there is a lot more work available like that. 

When Just Cutting and Removal

Usually from spring to fall, these niche services are in full swing. Consumers request removal of the concrete via cutting when there is a lot of damage to the concrete and/or asphalt on their driveways, parking lots, or parking ramps or when a building has been demolished but the foundation remains until it can be cut away. Sometimes a concrete wall requires cutting because something behind it or inside it is part of an ongoing criminal investigation. Total demolition would ruin whatever is behind or in the wall, and there is no plan to restore the wall after things are cut away and exposed. 

Why Just Cutting and Removal of Concrete

It is a straightforward process. Cut it, remove it, repeat. A contractor can size up a job when the only aspects of the job are cutting and removing the concrete. There is nothing else that has to be factored in, and no extra work is required. There is always a lot of this work to do, too, especially during road construction season, when other contractors might already be very busy. These contractors fulfill a need when other contractors are too busy to pull up concrete and asphalt on smaller jobs or need extra help with the removal of concrete and asphalt. In fact, contractors who do only cutting and removal services are doing an excellent thing by providing a service that would otherwise complicate the schedules and project timing of other contractors.

Finishing Our Property

When I first moved into our house, I realized that the place needed a little bit of work. In addition to missing part of the back lawn, there was also an empty RV pad and a missing patio. I thought about what to do, and I realized that the best thing might be to hire a concrete contractor to make things right. After we got settled, we started pricing services. We were able to find an incredible contractor that we knew would do a good job. After he poured the pads, it was amazing to see how much better things looked. Read my blog for ideas on how to finish your property, so that you aren't left looking at an eyesore.
