Concrete coring is the process of drilling perfectly round holes through hard structures such as concrete walls. It’s the go to concrete drilling technique when a precise circular penetration is needed.
With coring, holes up to 60″ in diameter can be drilled to virtually any depth. It can be done in slabs and walls, on any angle (vertical, horizontal and even upside down!). Electric or hydraulic drilling rigs can be used for drilling in sensitive locations or confined spaces.
In the world of construction, concrete core drilling is an essential service. Drilling core holes is required for everything from building sewer systems to running telephone lines to structural testing. Coring is used in common residential and commercial applications for installation of HVAC systems, drainage, electrical and more. Basically, core drilling is necessary whenever a hole is required – whether that’s on a floor, celling, door, foundation, or even a manhole in the street.
We use Diamond core drilling, named after its diamond bit, is an efficient and accurate method of drilling a wide variety of hard materials—including, but not limited to, asphalt, masonry, and steel—without vibration.
No vibration ensures that nearby structures aren’t damaged in the coring and drilling process. This dust-free, noise-free system makes diamond core drilling the technique of choice for environmentally-conscious concrete contractors.
