For All Concrete Cutting Needs in Chino Hills

When it comes to construction projects, there are certain ones you can safely go DIY on. However, if it has anything to do with concrete, you should leave it to the professionals. While you likely have the basic tools needed for something like woodworking at home, concrete requires specialized tools and approaches, both of which require special training and licenses. To save yourself time, money, and potential injury, call Garrett Concrete for all your concrete construction projects.

Garrett Concrete has been helping Chino Hills residents and businesses and the surrounding cities complete concrete cutting, construction, and demolition projects since 1978. With our years of experience, we know exactly how to approach any project, big or small. Our service is reliable and driven by your bottom line. If you have a concrete or masonry project of any size or scope that needs to be completed, Garrett Concrete is the company to call.

Curb Cutting

Just based on the name of this job, it sounds fairly simple: you have a curb where the side is damaged and you need to cut it away. One can picture this being done with a jackhammer, finishing the job in minutes. But in practice, this job is far from easy.

Traditional methods of curb cutting, such as using a jackhammer, actually serve to complicate the procedure. With these approaches, you end up demolishing the entire curb when you only needed to correct a single damaged section. In addition to removing structurally sound parts of the curb, these methods also risk damage to surrounding structures, such as the road and gutters. What starts out seeming like a small issue ends up being a very big and very expensive mess.

Anytime we execute a concrete repair, our goal is to preserve as much of the initial structure as possible. As such, we do not take any unnecessary risks or remove sound structure when it isn’t needed. For curb side cutting, we use a hydraulic saw to cut into the curb from the back, not the front. This allows us to remove precisely cut sections, avoiding additional repairs, producing less waste, and keeping your costs low. Once the damaged section is gone, we get to work restoring the curb.

Flat Sawing

Flat sawing is sawing performed on horizontal surfaces such as floors and sidewalks. Horizontal cuts are the easiest cuts to make, but since the medium we are working with is concrete, there is nothing easy about it. The Garrett team can complete flat sawing jobs on concrete, reinforced concrete, and masonry.

Using fixed or hand-held saws, we can open up space for a variety of purposes. Some flat sawing applications include the creation of space for utility lines, expansion joints, and repairs. While the saws we use for this work look similar to saws you might have at home, do not attempt flat sawing on your own.

Instead, allow our expert technicians to complete the job for you. We can complete flat sawing jobs both small and large, working in any space where concrete or masonry is located. We approach our flat sawing jobs as we do all jobs we take on: with an eye for quality, safety, and your budget.

Wall Sawing

Wall sawing is similar to flat sawing except it is complicated by the fact that it is done on vertical and angled surfaces. To complete this work, we use a saw that is modified to work when at an angle. This is done by using a guide track and operating the saw remotely, giving us the most accurate results possible.

Here at Garrett Concrete, we train all of our wall saw operators ourselves, enforcing our own standards, which exceed those of the industry at large. Our technicians can create openings of any size or shape, allowing you to create new windows, doorways, utility spaces, and more. Whether you are creating new construction or modifying an existing space, we can help you get exactly what you want.

Core Drilling

Cutting a straight line in concrete isn’t easy, but compared to creating a perfect circle, it is a walk in the park. To achieve accurate results, we use a mounted core drill. With this drill, we can use drill bits in various diameters, creating a precision cut. We are easily able to control the depth, allowing us to meet your exact specifications. With our help, you will be able to quickly move forward with your project.

Asphalt Grinding

If you have asphalt on your property, it will experience problems with time. The main reason this occurs is temperature changes that cause the material to expand and retract. Shifts in the ground, heavy traffic, and forces of nature can also cause asphalt to become uneven. When this occurs, it can make walking on the surface unsafe.

If the unevenness is within a certain range, we can grind the asphalt down rather than breaking it up, removing it, and redoing the surface. However, if it is needed, we can do that as well. Whether full-depth or partial-depth grinding, we have the tools and the training to get the job done.

Concrete Demolition, Breaking, and Removal

As we have noted, concrete is hard to work with and requires a lot of specialized tools and safety measures. This is even truer when it comes to concrete demolition, breaking, and removal. Completing these jobs safely and effectively requires significant planning and careful execution. If you need concrete demolition, breaking, or removal, call the experts at Garrett Concrete.
