Core drilling tips

Concrete contractors who are required to perform concrete core strength tests have a few options when it comes to core drilling. They can hire a testing lab or concrete sawing and drilling company to drill the cores, or they can choose to drill the cores themselves. Regardless of who drills the cores, make sure you have a written core test program that considers the proper place in a wall or slab from which to extract cores and how to handle cores once you remove them from the concrete.

What is core drilling?

A core drill is a drill specifically designed to remove a cylinder of material, much like a hole saw. The material left inside the drill bit is referred to as the core.

Core drilling can be done more rapidly since much less material needs to be removed than with a standard bit. This is the reason that diamond-tipped core drills are commonly used in construction to create holes for pipes, manholes, and other large-diameter penetrations in concrete or stone.

What is a concrete saw?

A concrete saw is a power tool designed for cutting through concrete and other masonry material. It utilizes hand-held operation or walk-behind, similar to a tiller. A concrete saw can have a chain, circular, or jig blade, like many other varieties of power saws,. Powered by electricity, gasoline, air, or hydraulics, a concrete saw uses either abrasive or diamond blade cutting technology and is designed for either dry or wet sawing.

There are a number of applications for a concrete saw. Brick, concrete, and cement can be cut out for repair, demolition, or modification.

What is a window well?

Window wells are small structures positioned outside ground-level/semi-basement windows that allow more light to enter and keep soil and water away from window. Usually a few feet or a meter deep and filled with a small layer of gravel to drain the well. Window wells are both practical and decorative and, with a small amount of upkeep, will improve the strength and look of ground-level windows.
