As part of our concrete repair services, we now offer concrete and asphalt planing. This unique diamond drum planer has the speed and power to remove irregularities in all types of surfaces. From badly spalled concrete to uneven surfaces, the All Trades Contracting planer can easily get the job done.
Our competent operator removes trip hazards in concrete sidewalks. The work is performed for the city of Thunder Bay in conjunction with operators pumping and jacking sidewalks. In some cases, jacking is not appropriate for removing the hazard, but planing will remove the edge satisfactorily.
In a past job, the planer was used in a basement to remove a 1-1/2" hump to correct a drainage problem. In another situation, the machine was used to remove 1/4" of spalled concrete over 4,000 sqare feet.
Other uses include paint line and coating removal, inlaying of traffic lines, as well as levelling of concrete and asphalt. By changing the planer head from diamond to carbide, we can also create different finishes from smooth to broom finish. We can also change the configuration of cutters to inlay grooves for safety requirements.
The machine can either be used indoors or out with a quick change from propane to electric power. If required, our dust collection system may be connected also.
