Concrete Patio Demolition and Removal
Many people have a concrete patio in front or back of the house or other property they own or have purchased. Over time, the concrete may develop cracks or the surface may become uneven , with parts of the concrete getting washed away. Hence the property owner would like to replace the existing concrete patio. In other cases, the property owner may wish to grow plants in part of the area covered by the patio. Hence the property owner will require reliable and cost effective Concrete Patio Demolition and Removal, to demolish the existing patio and remove the debris.
The effort, time, money and equipment required for demolishing the patio depends on a number of factors. In some cases, the concrete may be reinforced with steel, so the process of demolition will take more time. Usually if the patio is made from unreinforced concrete the price of demolition is usually less, since it is easier to break it. The time required will also depend on the thickness of the concrete patio, a thinner patio can be demolished more easily, while more time will be required for demolishing a thicker patio. Similarly the time taken to demolish a patio is directly proportional to the size of the patio.
Based on the size of the patio, type of concrete used, the concrete demolition company, will send heavy machinery for concrete demolition along with a trained operator for the machinery. Concrete demolition is a messy and dangerous process, there is a lot of dust, dirt and noise generated. Since a larger amount of force is applied to the concrete patio, some of pieces may splinter and cause damage to people and other items in the vicinity. Hence it is important to take proper safety precautions. The machinery will be used to break up the concrete patio into smaller pieces, which can be easily carried away for disposal.
After the concrete patio has been demolished, a large amount of debris will be generated. The volume of the debris depends on the size of the concrete patio. Unless the property owner plans to reuse the debris elsewhere the demolition company will also arrange to get rid of the debris generated. They will usually charge an additional fee for the debris disposal. In most areas, dumping debris on public property is prohibited, so the demolition company will take the debris to the designated landfill for disposal or recycling facility for concrete.
Alternately the property owner should find a person or business who requires the concrete debris for filling holes, raising the land level or similar purposes.This will save the property owner some money in disposal. After the demolition company has demolished the patio, removed the debris, they will usually clean the area of all the dirt and dust generated. The home owner is then free to use the area according to his plans. For example many people whose old patio developed cracks, would like to replace it with a patio of stamped concrete which will enhance the appearance of the property and is more durable.
