Maybe you want to get rid of the concrete slab patio adjacent to the back porch because you’re envisioning a large vegetable garden or orchard in the backyard. Perhaps your concrete driveway has seen better days and it needs to be replaced. Whatever the reason for your home renovation—your concrete has got to go.
Concrete removal, however, is back-breaking work. Even if you decide to go the DIY route, what will you do with the concrete once you’ve dismantled it and you are left with the rubble?
DIY or Call a Professional?
When you are planning on a renovation project in your home—whether big or small— consider whether or not you want to hire a professional. You may want to replace your concrete walkway with more modern brick pavers, but you’re not sure you can handle the job yourself. When considering hiring a professional, ask yourself: Are you naturally handy, or do you tend to make more of a mess than you want to admit when you try to fix anything?
Though tearing up concrete isn’t difficult, it is a tiring task. You will need a sledgehammer, a jackhammer, and a whole lot of strength and patience to break apart the slabs.
However, there are plenty of construction professionals in town who can help you remove concrete quickly. They have all the right tools to get the job done efficiently—and the best part is that you don’t have to break a sweat.
What to Do With the Debris
After the concrete has been demolished, you’ll be left with a lot of really heavy rubble. Throwing concrete into a dumpster or your trash can is not a great idea because it’s cumbersome to lift and will weigh down a receptacle so much that trucks may not be able to dispose of it. Plus, rather than putting concrete into a landfill, it can be recycled to line flowerbeds or walkways.
The best option is to hire professionals to haul the debris away. Even if you have a contractor you worked with to tear up the concrete, it’s still a great idea to call a removal company who will ensure that the construction materials are recycled or disposed of according to local, state, and federal guidelines.
