What is concrete coring?
Concrete coring is the process of drilling or cutting through concrete floors, walls and ceilings. The process is used for more complicated tasks like coring concrete pile caps to removing unwanted concrete from a property.
One of the most common uses for concrete coring is to create holes in pile foundations most often placed under buildings to transfer the weight of the structure to deeper below the surface of the ground. By transferring the structure's weight deeper, there's less chance of the building shifting. This is especially useful in climates with severe cold weather, significant weather fluctuations, or frequent flooding. Piles can be made out of steel, wood or concrete. All are jacked or driven into the ground and connected to pile caps. When the piles are concrete, the process of concrete coring is used to create a hole to connect the pile caps to the piles.
