The Process of Concrete Replacement in Richmond

Getting rid of your concrete in Richmond isn’t something recommended to do without professional help. You need serious heavy equipment to get the job done right. Smith Evergreen offers a large variety of tools that are perfect for the job and go above and beyond on performance. This heavy machinery is needed to get the job done right and within a reasonable timeframe. That is why most opt in for professional help as soon as the realize that their concrete needs replacement.

Before you can remove concrete in Richmond we do what is called a safety check. We want to make sure it is okay with your council but also ensure we won’t be digging into any wires. Doing that can cause electrical issues and other sorts of damage which we want to completely avoid. It is an expensive mistake to make so you want to be sure that nothing is in the way of the process. The next step in the process is getting a jackhammer or a sledgehammer to break down the concrete. This makes the concrete more workable and movable because of its size. We can put them into wheel barrels and haul them off the site much easier than if they were huge slabs of concrete.

Breaking the concrete isn’t the only thing that needed to be done though. We also need a tool that can cut through the metal reinforcements put in place to ensure the concrete's durability. Doing this requires an angle grinder to ensure it is done properly. Having a professional team involved can also be a surefire way to ensure nothing is missed or messed up. Next up we need to remove all debris from the site. If we don’t then it will be impossible to finish the rest of the job without it looking bizarre. We also need to make sure we get rid of all the dust in the area. Then for the final step, we pour the concrete. You want to ensure this is done correctly so that there aren’t any issues.
