Concrete Demolition and Removal
Think demolition and you're probably picturing a wrecking ball or a sledgehammer, depending on how big the job is. With concrete however it's frequently not the standing structures that represent the biggest and hardest jobs, but actually the ones you don't notice – the floors and foundations. Which is why you need the experts at Birmingham Concrete Removal to evaluate the job that you can't see because it is beneath your feet and be able to do the job of cutting it all out and taking it away.
Tools of the Trade
If you're still thinking that concrete demolition is done with wrecking balls and sledgehammers then we have news for you. Sometimes they are the right tools for the trade, but real professionals know that doing the job right can often call for much more. Like chipping hammers – light, hand held power hammers that deliver anywhere from 900 to 3000 blows a minute. That means they are super powerful but also incredibly precise which is what you need if only part of a concrete structure needs demolition, or if the concrete is next to or surrounded by delicate areas. Birmingham Concrete Removal has expertise with the full armory of the skilled specialist including chipping hammers, demolition hammers, rotary hammers, diamond wire saws, pavement breakers, and hydraulic splitters and crushers. Each one has a precise purpose in the hands of experts (that's us) and are part of an approach to demolition that is much more than smash and drag away. We are the pros when it comes to concrete demolition and every bit as skilled at the fine tooth comb stuff as the massive smash and crush jobs.
Floors and Foundations

Concrete flooring demolition doesn't just mean breaking up the paving and taking that away, it also involves surveying any subterranean concrete work and cutting down into it to be able to extract it. We will work deep into the ground to get that concrete out so that it doesn't interfere with any new structures and we have the equipment to dig many feet beneath your floors as we chase out the concrete and any associated materials.
