Concrete Coring for HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical Installations


HVAC, plumbing, and electrical companies often depend on the help of a professional concrete coring company during residential, industrial, or commercial construction or remodeling projects.   Here’s why these professionals need holes drilled through concrete and why it’s crucial that this step is completed by a concrete professional.

Why Holes Are Drilled Through Concrete During Construction Projects
Concrete core drilling creates openings for HVAC and plumbing materials, sprinklers, or electrical systems. Maybe you think that your project doesn’t require core drilling? Think again.   You need the help of a professional concrete core drilling company if you want to do the following:  

Install or Replace Ductwork: Adding ductwork to a new or existing building may require the use of a concrete core drill. Again, a professional will ensure that the openings are at the right place – and that the location is safe for drilling.  

Add Electrical or Communication Lines: Additional electrical lines may need to be added during your renovation project. Concrete core drilling creates openings for the conduit.  

Install a Sump Pump: A professional concrete core drilling company can create the necessary holes to install the sump pump and create an opening for the discharge pipe.

  Install a Drain: Installing a new drain or moving plumbing within an existing structure requires a new hole in the concrete.

  There are many other reasons why concrete coring might be necessary for your project. However, here’s why you should leave this step to a professional.  

Reasons to Hire Professional Concrete Cutters
When precision is important, hire experienced professionals.

Professional core drillers have the right equipment.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that concrete core drilling equipment is expensive and requires constant maintenance. Since experienced concrete core drillers make their living by providing this service, they have the newest and best equipment.   Concrete coring equipment can safely drill holes to any depth a quarter-inch to 66 inches in diameter. Some equipment can even be used to drill holes underwater!

Professional core drillers understand construction.

Concrete core drillers work closely with structural engineers. They understand the ramifications of drilling large and small holes within a structure.   Concrete cutting and coring can be dangerous. Therefore, you must hire professionals who take safety seriously so that every person on the job site is ensured a safe working environment.

Professional core drillers make precise cuts.

Concrete cutting requires a “measure twice cut once” attitude. After all, the structural integrity of the building can be affected if a mistake is made.   Professional concrete cutters make it easier for HVAC installers, electricians, and plumbers to complete their jobs because the cuts are always made in the exact right spot.
