Concrete removal requires care and precision. During concrete removal it essential not to damage surrounding areas. Having the correct tools and equipment is necessary for safe and effective concrete removal. Some concrete removal will require the use of a pavement breaker while other concrete removal projects need to be done with a hydraulic splitter. The pavement breaker comes in a variety of weights, usually from 30 to 90 pounds, to allow for different depths of splitting. In addition to considering the proper equipment, it is often necessary to pull a permit for concrete removal. Due to the nature of the work, concrete removal is often best left to professionals such as cement workers and concrete contractors. A qualified concrete contractor or cement contractor will also be able to provide for the safe disposal or recycling of the concrete once it is removed. If your concrete needs to be replaced, the cement worker or concrete contractor can help plan for the installation of replacement concrete to suit your needs.
