Concrete Slabs Need Creative Solutions

We were contracted to tear out concrete slabs that were right under the deck of a house.

The complication was that there was a 40-foot drop down a steep slope, plus a very narrow space between the existing fence posts…and we couldn’t take out the deck.

The contractor tasked with the general house renovation initially estimated that concrete removal would take a month and would have to be done by hand. This was cost-prohibitive, so he called R.A.L., although he was skeptical we could manage it.

Our solution was to build a small path down the steep hill in order to maneuver our equipment. We managed to put the bobcat right under the deck and used a breaker attachment to break the concrete into manageable pieces.

Next, we used the excavator to load the concrete into the mini-dump machine, drove it along our manufactured pathway—up the steep hill, through the narrow spaces, out the backyard—and dumped it into a disposal bin.

From start to finish, the whole project only took four days. The contractor and the homeowner were delighted with the speed and cost of the whole operation.

When you need it done right, one call to R.A.L. does it all.
