Concrete Cutting Services

Concrete Cutting

Penhall was founded in 1957 and has become the largest and most trusted provider of concrete cutting services in North America. We offer an extensive range of cutting options to help customers from homeowners to the largest industrial companies.

Hand Sawing

We utilize a variety of handsaws ranging from electric, gas, and hydraulic powered. Primarily used for small spaces, corners, and small openings, we use handsaws generally inside to cut concrete at slabs around 14x14 and 16x16.

Flat Sawing

With our flat saws, we can cut anywhere from 0-26 inches deep through both asphalt and concrete. Our saws cut with horsepower at an output of 44 to 90 hp. with a max speed of15000 rpm.

Wall Sawing

Generally used for HVAC openings, doorway openings, and et cetera, our wall saws are precise. They can be operated remotely and can cut anywhere from 25-33 inches deep without overcuts, which is especially useful in large jobs like nuclear power plants or a dams where the concrete is extremely thick and otherwise difficult to penetrate.

Wire Cutting

We use wire cutters when our other saws aren’t as well suited for the job. Our wire cutters use pulley system that pulls our diamond-infused wire and subsequently cuts whatever we need it to. Generally, we would wrap the wire around a pipe or box in order to cut it, and if we can wrap the wire around an object, it can be cut.

Concrete Coring

In order to core concrete, we use a drill motor that has a diamond infused core bit. In the LA Basin area, we have drilled a core 66 inches in diameter, and can drill anywhere from 50-100 feet deep with the use of continuous tubing technology.

Ground Penetrating Radar & X-Ray

At Penhall, we utilize Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) in order to see what’s inside the concrete before we go to work. This allows us to avoid rebar, pipes, and wires to provide the safest and most precise cut. Ground Penetrating Radar is a mature & cost effective technology for concrete imagery and scanning requiring only access from one side of the slab. We also offer X-ray services capable of extremely precise imaging when called for by our customers.

Concrete Breaking and Removal

We provide an extensive range of concrete breaking and removal services for projects for homeowners to commercial and industrial customers. We frequently use backhoes and bobcats to complete your demo which is more efficient on a smaller scale while still getting the job done right. Every Penhall branch has experienced professionals and a fleet of modern best in-class equipment.

Concrete Grinding

Penhall is the largest provider of concrete grinding services in North America.

  • We offer Mainline Grinding to ensure that highways and pavements meet tolerance requirements.
  • We also offer “corrective grinding” at Penhall to help finish pavements and provide a cost effective solution to create a smooth finish for our customers and eliminate unsafe surface bumps.

Concrete Grooving

With the use of G-38 and PC-3000 Highway Groovers, we make all kinds of pavement safer. We provide grooving for airports, highways, and bridges, providing a smoother, quieter ride for drivers while simultaneously increasing traction, eliminating otherwise necessary tapers and lane closures, and decreasing the danger of hydroplaning.

Concrete Demolition

Structural demolition is a tough and often dangerous job. However, Penhall Company makes sure that we do the job quickly, professionally, and most importantly, safely. We employ robotic hammering techniques and deploy large excavators to demolish structures industrial and commercial, maritime, and public, and tear down anything from harbors and ports to bridges and highways, and even nuclear power plants.
