Concrete is a lot like a good friend. It’s strong and loyal and will stand by you for years, even through the harshest conditions; and in most cases, it’s very low maintenance. However, there may come a time when cracks can no longer be patched. What then?

What conditions warrant concrete removal?

Whatever their cause, deep, recurring, or widespread cracks are a sure sign that removal is the only remaining safe option. Removal is also the best option for depressions, or sinking slabs, as well as raised concrete, possibly caused by frost heave.  Also be on the lookout for widespread pitting, also known as spalling.  Under any of these conditions, removing the concrete is the best option.

What to consider if you are thinking about removing it yourself?

If you’ve purchased a historic house, it’s probably because of the charm of its original features and the potential you see to make it a showcase home. But owners of historic buildings face different challenges when making renovations than owners of ordinary homes or commercial spaces.

If the building is a nationally significant one – perhaps a rare survivor of the work of a master architect or craftsman, or a place where a historically significant event took place – it may be a National Historic Landmark, designated for their “exceptional significance in American history,” or otherwise listed in the National Register of historic buildings. Owners of these buildings are often restricted to preservation or restoration of their  home – retaining the building’s original fabric through conservation, maintenance and repair. Any demolition work done in renovating the building may be restricted to removing additions and materials from other time periods, with the aim of returning the building closer to its original state.
