Concrete slab sawing is the process that cuts the upper portion of existing concrete to an even, flat plane. This technique is used to level damaged pavement, provide control joints or lay underground wires and pipes. When it comes to slab on grade, structural decks, roadways and any other horizontal surface, Fine Cut’s slab saws do the job. Slab saws are powered by gas, diesel, electric and hydraulic.
Fine Cut’s trained operators are equipped to cut through concrete, structural concrete, stone, brick, cinder block and asphalt.
Where wall sawing is performed on vertical, standing walls, concrete slab sawing is typically performed on horizontal surfaces. Many of the same principles that govern wall sawing, however, also apply to slab sawing. Slab sawing may be required to cut an opening for a new staircase, or to remove a section of damaged concrete.
Concrete slab sawing is the most identified diamond cutting method. Slab sawing features a diamond blade that is mounted on a walk behind machine requiring one operator.
Typical applications Include:
- Cutting reinforced concrete floors
- Cutting expansion and control joints
- Trenching for electrical installation
- Trenching for plumbing installation
- Removing damaged pavement
- Clean and repair cracks
- Openings for staircases, elevators, and ductwork
- Roof openings
- Highway, road, and driveway cutting
Slab sawing features a diamond blade mounted on a powerful walk behind saw, specifically designed to cut slab on grade, structural decks, roadways, airports and any other horizontal surface. Slab saws are powered by gas, diesel, electric, hydraulic and hi cycle, and are capable of safely cutting slabs up to 24” thick.
Slab saws are the workhorses of the cutting industry, allowing the cleanest, quietest and most effective way to cut concrete.
Fine Cut Concrete Drilling and Sawing, LLC first launched as a one truck operation in March 2002. Jim Ralston’s vision began after he mentored with and worked alongside some of the biggest names known in concrete cutting. He set out to make a dream come true with only a handful of customers. Fine Cut established a foundation based on loyalty and integrity. That foundation grew into a reputable company that now serves the entire Kansas City metro area, surrounding cities and local communities. A dedicated work ethic and determination drove the business toward its continued success.
In 2016, Clay Kohler expanded on Fine Cut’s potential by aggressively remodeling the company’s vision and long-term goals. With Jim’s knowledge of concrete drilling and sawing and Clay’s understanding of managing a business the two joined efforts in making Fine Cut Concrete Drilling and Sawing, LLC a viable company for contractors and homeowners to rely on.
