How Cutting Concrete Walls Works
Cutting concrete walls isn't necessarily a complex process but it does require the right equipment and experience. We begin by first marking the location of each window and door. We measure out the exact template of the cuts on both sides of the wall to ensure that our saw is working in a straight line. We generally drill out the corners in order to make sure that we know when to stop and where to start.
Once water has been hooked into the machine (if we're using a wet saw) and any furniture or supplies is covered with a protective layer we're ready to begin cutting. Our concrete wall cutting contractors in Santa Ana CA will begin by cutting along the lines on one side of the wall, and then repeating the process on the other. Once the cuts have been connected we'll go ahead and pull out the remaining concrete block and chisel down any ridges that might still be standing afterwards.
Once we've finished we'll proceed to clean up the area and talk with you or the owner to make sure that no other sections need to be removed. If you're of thinking of cutting concrete walls for a doorway or window in Santa Ana, be sure to give us a call at 714-477-7330. We'd be more than happy to help!
Are you cutting through concrete walls by hand?
This is a great question! The answer, it depends. If we're looking at making a short, shallow cut, we'll often do the work by hand. But, if you're wanting to cut a line horizontally for 5' that's 15" deep, we'll actually use a track that pushes the saw hydraulically. This helps keep everything straight, and works whether we're horizontal or vertical concrete cutting.
Does It Leave Overlapping Marks?
When you wall saw concrete it can leave lines that extend over the area being removed. However, for an additional cost this can actually be prevented using what's called a concrete chain saw. This machine actually looks like one that's used to cut wood, but is actually outfitted with a different blade. Once we've cut up to the corner mark, we can use this tool to cut out the corners and prevent any marks from being left over. If you want to know more about using one of our concrete chain saw hires in Santa Ana California, give us a call!
What Tools Are Used
Cutting concrete basement walls, doorways, and windows often only requires a handful of tools. We generally use a wet concrete saw, but also have dry models. These saws shoot water into the cut in order to cool the working area and keep things running smoothly. These saws are also outfitted with a variety of blades. The most commonly used is a serrated concrete blade that is diamond embedded. The serrations help pull dust from the cut and cool the blade while the diamonds give it extra durability.
In addition to your standard tools, our Santa Ana concrete wall cutters also use tape measures, chalk lines, drills, masonry chisels, and sledgehammers in order to get your job done and get it done right!
