  • Roadway Construction/Reconstruction. Concrete roadways are often required to be sawed into segments to make them more durable and flexible. The seams are then sealed with a substance to prevent water from getting into the gaps. 
  • Renovations. Businesses sometimes need renovations to expand or give their place a face lift. Concrete sawing can be helpful to make wall openings or remove entire walls. 
  • Retrofitting. Many buildings built before prior to current construction codes or standards require retrofitting in order to meet seismic qualifications. Concrete sawing can assist in separating buildings from their foundations and performing any other renovations necessary in the process.
