Addressing Your Concrete Project: Repair or Remove?

When you are undecided which approach is best for your concrete structure, whether you should repair or remove it, we will help you decide which route is best for you.

We recommend complete concrete removal if you see any of these on your driveway, patio, sidewalk, or slab:

  • Multiple, wide, and deep cracks that are uneven or settled on one side
  • Part of the concrete is pushed up (frost heave) due to the frost that occurs in colder climates
  • Concrete that has settled due to improper preparation of subgrade

On the other hand, simple concrete repairs will be a more cost-effective and faster option in these situations:

  • Presence of small, hairline, thin cracks with no evidence of settling
  • Sunken concrete caused by heavy equipment or load that was placed on the concrete.

In Big Easy Demolition, we will assess your concrete structure properly and determine if it is necessary to bring down an old concrete structure in order to erect a new one or replace the damaged parts.

Since concrete can be challenging to remove, we offer safe and precise concrete removal services in New Orleans that covers all types of concrete structures in various applications.

Concrete Removal Process

The method of removing concrete in New Orleans has a major influence on both the surface of the remaining concrete and the properties of the uppermost layer of the remaining concrete. We have engineers and specialists who can carefully and safely remove your concrete even with surrounding concrete structures that are still in good condition.

Depending on the extent of repair or damage on your concrete structure, we use a concrete removal method that is suitable and safe for your concrete. Here are the methods of concrete removal that we use:

Blasting Method

We use materials producing rapidly expanding gas confined within a series of boreholes to produce controlled fractures of the concrete.

We have qualified personnel with proven experience and ability in this field. We will also make sure that we get proper permission from the government departments in New Orleans in advance if this is the best method for your concrete removal project.

Cutting Method

Cutting Damaged Concrete - Big Easy DemolitionWe cut damaged concrete, handle and transport the cut pieces properly.

We use several concrete cutting techniques such as:

  • High-pressure water jet (without abrasives)
  • Diamond or carbide saw
  • Diamond wire cutting
  • Mechanical shearing
  • Stitch drilling
  • Thermal cutting

Impacting Method

Our experts in this field perform this concrete removal method by repeatedly striking the concrete surface with a high energy tool or a large mass to fracture and spall the concrete structure. Types of equipment we use for this method are:

Milling Method

This method is used to remove a specified amount of concrete from large areas of horizontal or vertical surfaces producing a sound surface free of micro-cracks.

Hydro-demolition

If you need to remove just a portion of a sound concrete structure, we can use hydro-demolition for your concrete removal. This method involves high-pressure water jetting as a primary means for the removal of concrete.

This works best if you desire to preserve and clean the steel reinforcement for reuse and minimize damage to the concrete remaining in place. Our engineers apply this method with high efficiency disintegrating concrete and changing it back to sand and gravel-sized pieces.

Pre-splitting Method

We use hydraulic splitters, water pressure pulses, or expansive chemicals placed in boreholes drilled along a line to induce a crack plane for the removal of your concrete structure. The pattern, spacing, and depth of boreholes will determine the extent and direction of the crack planes.

Shot-blasting

This is a highly efficient and environment-friendly method we use where metal pieces are projected at the concrete surface at high velocity removing concrete material that is collected by a vacuum chamber in the machine.

Cost of Concrete Removal in New Orleans

Big Easy Demolition will do concrete removal for you that is well within your budget. The cost to remove concrete will depend on the amount of concrete that needs to be removed, disposal fees, and your location in New Orleans.
