man demolishing a concrete using jackhammer - Big Easy ConcreteNew Orleans will always have something unique to offer its locals and visitors— from a myriad of delicious cuisine to exciting parades and festivals and even mystifying and adventurous swamps.

When you are looking for ways to be on track with all the excitement that New Orleans brings, get in touch with the best New Orleans demolition of a concrete contractor who will do nothing but offer the best methods of concrete demolition for any of your demolition needs.

Here are the methods we use for concrete demolitions to get the job done for you:

  • Pressure Burst

    When you need a quiet and dust-free demolition anywhere in New Orleans, this method is ideally suited for you. We drill holes into concrete and apply force.

    We use hydraulic machines for mechanical pressure bursting and a slurry that expands for chemical bursting.

  • Pneumatic/Hydraulic Breakers

    If you have a pavement or foundation that needs to be demolished, this is the method we use.

    Our machine-mounted remote-controlled breakers are used to demolish the concrete before finishing with manual demolition.

  • Ball and Crane

    This is the classic “wrecking ball” method of demolition that we use.

    We have high-skilled and experienced crane operators who do it with exact precision to avoid unexpected damages.

    Not all structures are demolished in this method, so we follow up with added demolition to cut down the steel reinforcement of the concrete structure.

    While this is recommended for larger structures, it creates a lot of noise, vibration, and dust. But our crew will execute the demolition with utmost care to minimize these.

  • Dismantling

    We use this concrete demolition method to break down pieces of concrete by using saws, thermal lances, and high-speed water jets.

    As concrete demolition contractors, we are committed to demolishing a structure with minimal dust, noise, and environmental impact, hence we offer this method of demolition.

  • Explosives

    Our trained and skilled demolition crew uses explosives to remove large amounts of concrete.

    They insert the explosives inside defined boreholes to break a heavy and massive concrete structure apart into smaller components.

    We understand the safety precautions and risks that accompany this demolition method and our crew has been sufficiently trained in those aspects.

Conditions That Call for Concrete Demolition Services

We do not just jump in and demolish your concrete structures in New Orleans, we assess the condition of your structure thoroughly. After careful assessment and we find the conditions unsafe, we suggest the removal and replacement of the concrete structure. These are the conditions where we plan a demolition service project with you:

  1. Deep, widespread cracks anywhere on the concrete structure that may have been caused by extreme weight, improper preparation of subgrade, erosion of sub grace, or any other reason. If a settlement has occurred, trust our demolition crew to remove the damaged concrete for a new replacement.
  2. Sunken concrete slabs were caused by improper preparation of subgrade and loose material used for the subgrade. Unsupported concrete slabs would usually sink when loose material used becomes susceptible to sinking when water goes under the concrete.
  3. Frost heave signs on concrete are very common in cold climates and the moisture in the ground that freezes can push the concrete upward, necessitating the demolition process.
  4. So much spalling or pitting on the surface of concrete makes it more economical to replace the concrete rather than prepare the entire surface.
  5. Concrete structures that are in the way of an addition to residential or commercial buildings will require their removal through demolition process.
  6. Faulty concrete construction needs to be torn out and replaced.
  7. Old curbing needs to be removed for street improvements, road whining, or other purposes.
  8. An entire structure needs to be removed where concrete is part of the structure or is the entire structure itself.
