Why You Need Concrete Core Drilling Services


These are some of the situations in which utilizing concrete core drilling services can make the difference in getting your job done on time.

There are a lot of tasks that have to get done when working with concrete. Even if you have highly-skilled workers, it’s possible they could use some help. This is when you put your trust in concrete core drilling services. These are some of the situations in which utilizing concrete core drilling services can make the difference in getting your job done on time.

Punching Through Concrete

Concrete core drilling makes it easier to break down concrete and reach anything underneath. Sometimes, this means making use of ground penetrating radar (GPR).

GPR lets workers detect potential hazards that could mess with the drilling process. There are diamond tips on the drills that core drilling services will be using on their drills. These tips allow them to penetrate concrete more effectively than those who use drills that use other bits. It’s also possible that stone and brick could be embedded in the concrete which makes it a challenge to get through the concrete without the proper tools.

Making Cleaner Cuts

It’s easier to make cutting mistakes with a standard drill. Concrete core drilling services use special concrete core drills that allow them to make cleaner cuts in the concrete. This is because the drills follow along the edges of the drilled hole. This procedure also makes a lot less dust and debris.

Gathering Samples

Concrete core drilling services have a goal of gathering samples of whatever was removed. The core drill that is used will extract some of the material that was drilled or cut. This allows you to put the sample to the side and analyze it later. The analysis helps to determine the goals that are set for the project in the future that relate to the core sample.

Custom Core Sizes

It’s important to have all sorts of different core sizes available to you. It will depend on the size of the hole you have to make. Sometimes, making a hole just a few inches wide is ideal. Other times, however, you may need a hole as large as three feet wide. Concrete core drilling services have experts who know exactly what size you’ll need, how to get the job done, and which tools will be required for the job.
