The whole idea behind concrete is to make a substance that is as tough and durable as possible, and this makes concrete demolition one of the most difficult tasks when tearing down an existing structure. First, before undertaking this task, you need to determine whether concrete demolition is truly necessary, or whether it's possible to conduct repair or workaround that will allow you to avoid the headache. There are ways to fix cracks and dilapidation, but when you have deep cracks, sinkholes and frost damage, removal may be unavoidable.
You also need the right tools for the job. For a moderate-sized residential project, you may get away with a pneumatic hammer, sledgehammer, maybe a diamond wire saw. For a larger and more difficult project, you may need jackhammers or hydraulic crushers. There are many different types of concrete demolition equipment; if you don't have enough experience tearing down concrete, either ask for advice or leave the work to professional demolition crews.
Local Roll Off will provide you with dumpsters to dispose of broken concrete from your demolition. Many home owners choose to simply ship this debris to a landfill and forget about it; however, we strongly encourage you to consider recycling old concrete. This is fairly easy to do for almost all types of concrete, as techniques have been developed and refined in recent years to easily break concrete walls and pavement, extract metal reinforcing elements from construction debris, and pulverize the debris into material that can be reused as aggregate in fresh materials. Reycled concrete can also serve as substrate in road and foundation construction.
The good news is, recycling concrete can actually save you money. Disposing of trash at the landfill can cost as much as 100 dollars per ton; recycling, on the other hand, costs nothing and helps both industry and the environment. When you call us to rent a concrete removal roll off dumpster, we will put you in touch with an environment- and cost-conscious local company that will properly recycle your construction debris.
