Concrete Cutting Services in Cape Cod

Double S Concrete Cutting remained very busy in February, as the majority of large home improvement projects require the cutting and removal of a concrete foundation before any other work gets underway. Getting the job done right the first time is a major step in having the rest of your home remodeling project go smoothly. Double S Concrete Cutting in Plymouth has been serving the Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts area for over 20 great years.

Here are a few photos of recent concrete cutting work:

The first photo is of a 3×3 cut out in the concrete floor to create an opening for a load-bearing pad, which is critical in any constructive design. The second photo is a concrete cut-out for a crawl space, which can be used as a storage area or an area in your basement to install piping in a cost effective way. Lastly, we cut and dropped a concrete doorway opening to allow for an emergency exit in the basement, or this service can be sought after by a homeowner seeking a more convenient way to access their basement.

Concrete Cutting for Basement Doorway in Plymouth, MA

Double S Concrete Cutting stayed locally yesterday working on a home in Plymouth, MA. This home owner was looking to add an alternate exit to their basement space in case of an emergency. Not only is it state law to provide an emergency exit in any type of living space, but it just makes common sense and could be the difference between life and death.

Even if you are only using your basement for storage or some sort of work shop for your tools, you never know when an emergency or accident will strike. It always pays to have a backup plan. Furthermore, if you are doing some work in your basement, it’ll be nice to have an opening to fresh air because we all know how stale a basement can get. Cracking this door open on a nice New England day will make your work experience that much better.

Double S Concrete Cutting has been serving the Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts area for over 20 years for all of your concrete cutting needs. Whether its a large landscaping project outdoors or cutting out an egress basement window to turn it into a living space, we’ve seen and done it all.

Concrete Cutting for Egress Basement Window in Weymouth, MA

Double S Concrete Cutting took a trip up north last weekend to help a homeowner in Weymouth, MA. This homeowner needed to install an egress window in their basement for a number of reasons. The first step when getting an egress window installed is to cut out a chunk of the concrete where the window will go, and that’s why we were called in!

The reasons for a homeowner installing an egress basement window ranges from it begin a necessity or someone just looking to reap its benefits. If you plan on having anyone or anything living in your basement, you are required by law to have egress windows, as well as an emergency exit to the outdoors.

Concrete Cutting for Basement Door & Windows in South Yarmouth, MA

Double S Concrete Cutting was in South Yarmouth, Cape Cod, MA last week working on a home where the homeowner was looking to finish the basement to add an extra bedroom to the home. According to Massachusetts law, any basement living space must have its own exit in case of an emergency. In this situation, we used our concrete cutting services to make exits by both door and egress window.

 Adding a basement living space or bedroom can really help open your home up for more family activities and to fit more guests. We find ourselves doing a lot of concrete cutting projects like this out on Cape Cod because home owners are trying to add additional bedrooms to their vacation homes. It not only means you can fit more family for your personal vacations, but its also adds value to your home so you can rent it out to guests for more money.

Core Concrete Drilling for Medical Facility in Plymouth, MA

The Jordan Hospital in Plymouth, MA has been around for over 110 years and is now one of the largest medical facilities in the South Shore. Repairs and addition come along with being around since 1901 and recently they broke ground on a new building that they plan to use for Medical Offices. One of their first calls was to Double S Concrete Cutting Contractors to do some Concrete Cutting and Core Drilling before they could do the electrical work.

Core Drilling is when we use one of our high powered drills to remove a cylinder of mater, in our case concrete, to leave a perfectly cut hole for piping, plumbing, electrical work and more. It is called Core drilling because the part of concrete that is removed is called the core. Most residential core drilling ranges from 1 inch to 1 foot, but for commercial use we have done holes up to 5 or 6 feet! Double S Concrete Cutting is located in Plymouth, MA but provides Core Drilling and other services throughout the South Shore, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket!

New Door Opening in Hull, MA

Double S Concrete Cutting was recently over in Hull, MA working on a new concrete door opening for the basement of this house. While many people request a new door opening in the basement for emergency exit purposes and legal issues, sometimes it is just nice to have additional exits on the house for storage. Maybe even make a little outdoor patio!

Concrete Door Cutting Hull, MA

Although this door is not exactly the same as an egress door, it is certainly just as important. If you plan on refinishing your basement to turn it into a den or bedroom, laws require that you have an easy exit to the outdoors. Not only do you need the door, but you need other emergency related requirements like the door being separated by fire resistant material. It is always important to follow the law, especially when it comes to human life. In any matter, the first step in this process is getting the concrete cut.
