With any renovation, walls are likely to be brought down, floors removed, and various fixtures altered to either accommodate larger fixtures or to create doors and windows where there was neither. Instead of taking the cave-man approach of knocking down walls using a mallet, today's technology has provided diamond blades. These come in many sizes and can be used with hand held or ground saws. For concrete properties, diamond blades will not only slice through the walls, they will slice through your costs and work time as well. Read on to see how.
They are quick
As one of the hardest carbon materials on Earth, diamonds allow these blades to cut through any type of wall with ease. It does not matter how thick they are or what reinforcement they have. This ease of cutting helps to reduce operation times as there are no trial and error attempts required. Once you decide where you want to cut, your diamond blade saw will cut right through. You therefore get to save time, a feat that allows you to complete the renovation within the planned duration.
They are safer than most alternatives
Cutting through concrete is a risky endeavour. Concrete has fine particles and pieces of aggregate that can come flying loose and cause harm. However, thanks to the diamond blades, you can cut sharp and reduce the exposure to such risks. That is, because the diamond blades are very sharp, they can make clear cuts without altering the concrete surface too much.
They cause little dilapidation interference
Traditional concrete-cutting methods have one major flaw; they pose a high dilapidation risk to the property being worked on. For example, use of chisels or hammers tends to stress concrete walls and can bring about damage in the form of cracks. This is a form of dilapidation that weakens the structure and shortens the lifespan of the affected areas. With diamond-cutting blades, your property will not be exposed to such stress or structural damage. The procedure relies on friction and the strength of the diamond-embedded blades to cut through walls, not on blunt force.
They provide great cutting precision
Lastly, diamond cutting blades will afford you great precision. You will be able to cut where you want, however you want. Why is this important? Because the last thing you want when working on a kitchen or bathroom wall is to make the wrong cut. Luckily, that will hardly happen with a diamond blade if you know what you're doing. You therefore get to avoid dealing with remedial costs and extended renovation time.
You should also know that diamond blades can be used to cut through many other hard materials such as tile, stone, brick, and even asphalt.
