Concrete Removal in Jacksonville

Demolition Services You Can Trust


Concrete removal or demolition is the process of systematically removing and/or demolishing concrete structures. This can be concrete buildings, sidewalks, bridges, or any other process where concrete has been used and needs to be removed. Concrete, like every other substance made by humans, wears out or becomes structurally unsound. Because of the danger concrete poses to humans if it collapses, compromised concrete structures are best removed when unwanted or when unsalvageable.

Sunken Foundations or Slabs

While concrete is one of the strongest materials on earth, it is not invincible to Mother Nature's wrath. Concrete foundations or slabs can sink, due to the shifting earth beneath them. This is mostly caused by rain that saturates the soil, loosens it, and then causes the concrete to shift. This can cause your building or structure to not sit on the ground perfectly, putting undue stress on other parts of the building. This most likely will cause a collapse down the road.

Cracked or Broken Concrete

Due to the elements, concrete can break or crack. Once there is an entryway into the concrete, this problem will only get worse as moisture continues to break apart the concrete. Cracked or broken concrete is structurally unsound and should be evaluated by a concrete expert, such as ELEV8 Demolition, for a concrete removal service as soon as possible.

Elevated Concrete

Sometimes concrete does not sink; instead, it rises. This is caused by a different process of Mother Nature known as frost heave. In this scenario, moisture in the ground freezes and then contracts, pushing whatever is above it (concrete) up. This is most often seen in cold environments, but it can occur here in Jacksonville as well.

Broken Bits, Pitts, or Flakes of Concrete

Spalling is where bits of concrete are broken off due to forces acting upon it. This can be many actions, such as weathering, corrosion, impacts. You'll see this where pipes have corroded and impacted the concrete around it, or you'll see it from the freezing and thawing of concrete. You'll notice this as big oval bits missing from your concrete. This can become serious and require a concrete demolition service from a professional Jacksonville demolition company.

Concrete removal is most definitely not willy-nilly, especially if there are nearby structures you don't want to damage. Depending on the location of the concrete and how much there is, various heavy equipment or hand tools may be used. We will use our heavy equipment with attachments to break up large slabs of concrete and remove them. Or, we may use any number of saw-cutting implements to get the job done. Depending on the size of the concrete chunks, we may use our heavy equipment to load up the concrete, or just load it up by hand. Then, we'll haul it away for you, recycling as much of it as possible. Concrete, since it is made from natural substances, is almost 100% recyclable.


The answer to this is: it depends. Thick concrete more than 4 inches thick will be almost impossible to remove without heavy equipment. Thus, your concrete patio or driveway could be less than this. To remove any thickness of concrete, you'll need the proper tools. These include: 

  • Sledgehammer
  • Gloves
  • Wheelbarrow
  • Hand-held Hammer
  • Shovels
  • Pry bar
  • Safety goggles

You'll have to plan out your concrete removal. Simply grabbing your sledgehammer and having a go will most likely result in areas being damaged that you did not intend
