Everything You Should Know About Concrete Core Drilling

Concrete core drilling, otherwise known as concrete coring, is the process of cutting precise circular cores into a concrete structure.

Concrete core drilling, otherwise known as concrete coring, is the process of cutting precise circular cores into a concrete structure. It is a service that nearly every construction project needs at one point. Whether it is required to create openings in slabs or walls for fittings or a contractor just needs to create space for a manhole, concrete coring has a lot of applications for different industries. In this blog post, we’ll explain what concrete drilling is, what its applications are, and why you should hire G&M Service’s team of experts for the job. Read on to learn more!

What Exactly is Concrete Core Drilling?

Concrete core drilling is the primary process of making circular, precise cuts in existing concrete structures using concrete coring equipment, which consists of diamond cutting tools used for coring operations. Concrete cores of any depth or any size can be cut, all depending on the capability of the tools used for the job. At G&M Services, we have a wide selection of drill bits from ½ inch up to 6 feet in diameter, which gives our certified technicians the freedom they need to work with a vast range of projects and on job sites that might have hard-to-reach areas. Concrete drilling is a fast, clean, and safe way to produce consistent diameter holes in stone, concrete, asphalt, and masonry without causing vibration or impact damage to the surrounding areas.

Applications of Concrete Core Drilling

Concrete core drilling has a vast range of applications. Almost every single renovation and new construction project requires concrete cutting cores. Some of the most common applications include:

  • Contractors prefer concrete drilling for structures that require plumbing, electrical, and HVAC installations.
  • Creating holes for plumbing sinks, sewer or floor drains, storm drains, or gas and heating pipes.
  • Creating openings for feed wires, electrical pipes, or conduits.
  • Openings for mechanical HVAC ducts, lines, and pumps in concrete walls.
  • Used for foundation construction where higher strength structures are needed.

Why You Should Hire G&M Services Professionals for Concrete Core Drilling

The process of concrete drilling is easy to understand, but it requires expertise, proper tools, and the necessary knowledge to complete. Drilling a concrete structure in the wrong area could result in short circuits, damaged conduits or other fixtures, and accidentally cutting into reinforced bars or post-tension cables could cause catastrophic structural failure. This might put staff working on the project at serious risk. Therefore, it is recommended to hire G&M Service’s certified professionals for the job. We can complete all concrete drilling jobs- big or small, through our wide range of concrete cutting and core drilling equipment. Our professionals also provide 24/7 emergency concrete cutting and core drilling services, so you can rest easy knowing our crew can address any problems that might pop up.
