If you don’t regularly work with large blocks of concrete, then removing concrete slabs can be a daunting project to take on. Owners may grapple with themselves about how much money they want to spend, how necessary it is for the health of the property, and whether or not they can do it themselves. The end result is that the task gets pushed to the bottom of the list for far longer than it should. Learn more about why you shouldn’t delay removal and how Cobra Concrete safely removes concrete slabs.
Strength and Sensibility
Concrete is certainly a durable material, and it can stand up to quite a lot of punishment. But no matter how well you maintain it, concrete won’t last forever. A few small cracks won’t harm the integrity or stability (though they may not look very attractive), but surface cracks can also deepen quickly. An expert contractor will look at the severity of the cracks, as well as the amount of spalling. Spalling occurs when small particulate matter from the concrete breaks up (e.g., dust, gravel, etc.), and it’s usually a sign that the concrete can’t be repaired. Even a novice can tell a lot just by looking at their concrete once they know what to look for.
