Summer Projects and Concrete Cutting

Summertime is the best and most popular time of the year to work on your home, or outdoor landscapes. When the weather gets warmer it pushes you outside to recognize what your homes situation is. At Double S Concrete Cutting, we want to reach out to families and people working on walkways, basement revisions, patio work and much more.

It is often the situation that homeowners want to take projects on by themselves. Double S Concrete amends these people. One small situation when doing major work is that people often run into a situation where concrete, stone, brick and often difficult materials come in your way of completing a project. Upgrading that walkway or patio can’t be done with pulling up the old one first.

Double S Concrete Cutting specializes in working with concrete, brick, block or stone. Any of these can be difficult to work with if you don’t have the required, skill, experience and equipment. For further information about your current project idea and about how we can help, just give us a call at (508) 830-9955.

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.
