Removing a Concrete Patio or Driveway

Como Disposal - Saturday, May 04, 2019
Do you have an old cracked, uneven walkway, patio or driveway you are looking to replace? Are you unsure of how to go about removing it? Hopefully this blog will give you some ideas on how to hire the right contractor and how to dispose of the old waste.

Old concrete surfaces can be extremely dangerous and unattractive. You may want to tackle this project yourself but it can be backbreaking and if you don’t do it correctly it may end up costing you more money in the end. Hiring a qualified contractor will basically reduce your headaches of trying to remove the heavy concrete on your own.

You should choose a reputable contractor with trained and certified professionals to get the job done efficiently and safely. They will plan and execute your demolition project from start to finish.  Once you find a reliable contractor, they will inform you of any precautions that need to be taken such as if any permits are required and if utility companies need to come and mark dangerous areas. The cost of removal will depend on the size of the area, thickness of the concrete, disposal fees and your physical location. The contractor will use saws, jackhammers and a Bobcat with a hydraulic or pneumatic breaker attachment to break up the concrete. Once in manageable chunks the Bobcat will load up a dumpster for easy removal. The contractor will then haul the load away to a landfill site or even better a recycling facility.


 
You may be thinking of tackling this yourself to save money but it is a tiring, messy, tedious, demanding job.  Renting equipment and hiring a waste removal company can quickly add up. It shouldn’t take more than a day for a professional to get the job done efficiently with all the proper equipment. When you consider all this, hiring a professional makes the most sense. I’d say that’s money well spent!
