How To Easily Cut Concrete

Ah concrete. Thou art indeed a cruel foe. Concrete is one of the most commonly used building materials in the world today, even more so than brick, especially in larger structures. It is loved by all masons as being the perfect anti-nature building material. It can withstand a huge amount of abuse by the elements, and it is incredibly tough and permanent. However, there is also a begrudging dislike of the material from builders because of the amount of effort it takes to replace, repair and cut out bits of concrete structures.

While cutting this material may seem like a living hell, it really isn’t. The modern world has a ton of different concrete cutters which are specialized tools used to cut up the concrete in walls and floors. There are different sizes of these tools to suit different types of concrete, such as walls, pavers and more. There are also different techniques to use with each type of tool.

For the DIY enthusiast in youFor someone who enjoys doing tasks like this on your own, the perfect concrete cutters are the ones with the diamond tipped blades. These circular blades are perfect for individual use, and you don’t even need specialized training to handle them. A diamond blade may be an expensive buy outright, but over time it is actually cheaper than purchasing traditional corundum blades, which wear out rather fast. In fact, you can even rent the diamond blade and be charged for the amount in diameter the blade has reduced upon return, which can save you big bucks.

Wet and dry cutsThere are two types of diamond cutting blades for concrete structures. They both have the same basic build: a metal core blade that has an outer perimeter of diamond bonded with metal. Of course, pure diamond can’t be used (unless you are willing to cough up your lifesavings for one blade). The two types of blade are wet and dry. The dry blades have a serrated edge which allows the blade to cool down as the cut is being made. It also acts like a feed for any waste materials. The wet cutter is either made with teeth or with a smooth blade. The problem with dry cutting is the dust. If you aren’t wearing a mask, you are probably going to end up with a bad cough. There are many other types of blades out there, for different uses. Some saws are made differently as well depending on the intended end user. For the DIY superhero in you though, diamond blades are definitely the way to go, especially if you want to save a little money too.
