Concrete Slab Sawing — also known as flat sawing — is a quick and efficient diamond method used for cutting horizontal surfaces such as concrete slabs, floors, bridge decks, and pavement on streets. Concrete Slab Sawing gained popularity in the concrete cutting industry because it is versatile, practical, and cost efficient.
Concrete slab saws are typically powered by gasoline, diesel, electric, or hydraulic engines. Compared to jack hammering, Concrete Slab Sawing is faster, quieter, and less stressful to structural areas. The applications for slab sawing are virtually endless, and the procedure can be performed on a variety of structures, both indoors and outdoors, like street cuts.
Common applications for Concrete Slab Sawing include:
- Cutting reinforced concrete floors
- Cutting expansion and control joints
- Cutting sidewalks and street cuts
- Controlled demolition
- Cutting plumbing and electrical trenches in slabs
- Construction of structural foundations
- Road and street repairs
- Residential and commercial improvements

Horizontal street cut curb cuts allow for installations of new driveways, approaches, and handicap ramps. Concrete Slab Sawing will effectively open the curb with a street cut so you can gain access. The saw cuts curbs horizontally to the street from the street side without requiring a large amount of excavation on the back side. A new residential approach can be cut in less than one hour and includes tapered cuts on the ends.
Other common forms of asphalt cutting include sawing the perimeter of areas that need asphalt repair. This provides a clean edge to improve the appearance and effectiveness of the surface repair. Sometimes this includes sawing through multiple layers, including brick and/or concrete of older installations.
