Common Demolition Methods We Use
We at South Bend Concrete Contractors Co use various concrete demolition methods. Each demolition job is different. We consider several factors to identify the right approach. Using the suitable demolition method ensures we tear down concrete in the safest and easiest way possible. Depending on the project, we use any of the following methods:
We use a manual demolition approach in smaller concrete structures. In particular, we manually demolish concrete surfaces like floors, pathways, and driveways. Since we demolish manually, it can be time-consuming depending on the scale of the project and how thick the concrete we are working on.
Ball and Crane Method
We use the ball and crane approach to tear down houses and concrete buildings. The process involves swinging or dropping the ball into the surface. Thus, creating lots of noise, dust, and vibration. The process is tricky. We cannot let any mistakes happen during the demolition. Rest assured, we only let an experienced operator administer the job.
By using a saw, we cut concrete slabs into smaller pieces. Once they are cut, we use a crane to lift them. This dismantling technique is best if you want the most negligible impact on your surroundings since it is less noisy and produces less dust than other methods. We usually use this method when taking down concrete walls.
Chemical and Mechanical Bursting
Both chemical bursting and mechanical bursting cause concrete surfaces to split. The first uses expansive slurry in boreholes, whereas the second uses a splitting machine driven by hydraulic pressure. It is ideal for tearing down concrete structures, since both processes are controllable. Both methods are effective, but a significant difference lies in the price. Mechanical bursting is much cheaper than chemical bursting.
The safety of our people is our primary concern. That is why everyone in our team is insured in case of any unfortunate events while onsite. We have a safety office onboard in every project we do to ensure everyone follows the safety protocols. We also make sure they use proper safety gears when demolishing or removing concrete to protect themselves from noise, dust, falling debris, etc.
To ensure the safety of our people, we ensure they are equipped with the proper safety gear, which includes:
- Safety goggles or safety glasses
- Steel-toed boots
- Hearing protection
- Construction gloves
- Safety belts/harness
- Safety helmets
- Protective clothing
Concrete Breaking Tools
At South Bend Concrete Contractors Co, we use various tools to break up concrete surfaces. Using the right tool is crucial when demolishing concrete to ensure excellent results. Some of the power tools we use to demolish concrete are:
Pneumatic and Hydraulic Breakers
Pneumatic breakers are ideal for breaking concrete slabs in confined spaces. It comes in various speeds and sizes and has a high weight-to-power ratio. Meanwhile, a hydraulic breaker is a piece of heavy mechanical equipment we use to demolish large concrete surfaces. This tool requires a lot of physical effort and produces too much noise. Concrete contractors typically use it in road construction.
Machine Mounted Breakers
Machine-mounted breakers are percussion hammers mounted on excavators. It is a powerful machine that we use to demolish concrete structures. This tool works because of the auxiliary hydraulic system from the excavator.
An angle grinder is a power tool that is handheld. We use it for abrasive cutting and grinding of metal. While we use it for leveling and smoothening concrete surfaces, we also use it to remove paints and adhesives before removing concrete.
Diamond Wire Saw
Diamond wire saws are designed to cut reinforced concrete. They can cut almost any thickness of concrete. Diamond wire saws create the least amount of noise, dust, and vibration. Therefore, they are the most suitable for demolitions within occupied structures.
A chipping hammer is used to break overhead and vertical concrete surfaces. They are lightweight and hand-held, making them ideal for minor concrete removal projects.
When breaking up concrete slabs, we may also have to use hand tools like a pry bar and bolt cutters. We use pry bars to separate two objects. As with bolt cutters, we use them to cut chains, wire rope, bolts, and padlocks. Another popular hand tool is the sledgehammer. A sledgehammer is one of the go-to concrete breaking tools for DIY concrete removal projects. Hand tools are excellent for dismantling reinforced concrete slabs. It makes separating concrete and reinforcements like wire mesh or rebar easier.
