Our Coring team have the advanced drilling techniques and expertise to make concrete penetrations of any size, angle or depth. 

What is Core Drilling?

Concrete coring / core drilling … is the mechanical process of drilling a precise circular hole in concrete structures such as walls and floors.

Where is it used? 

This procedure is done to aid in the completion of electrical wiring, plumbing lines, sprinkler systems, HVAC ducts, manhole taps, water treatment plants and many other related construction projects.

How Precise?

To ensure that the drilling is accurate and efficient, the drill core is anchored in place. Once it has been appropriately lined up, the drill bit can be mounted on the equipment. The crank is then engaged while water is used as a coolant on the drill. Once the concrete has been drilled to the required depth, the whole core can be removed along with the drill core and bit.

Core Drilling Experience:

 Using the latest technology, our techs are capable of all sizes, depths, and degrees of core drilling, depending on what your individual construction project requires.

Core Drilling

Serving clients in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and nationwide!

Concrete coring (also known as concrete core drilling) is the mechanical process of drilling a precise circular hole in concrete structures such as walls and floors. This procedure is done to aid in the completion of electrical wiring, plumbing, sprinkler systems, HVAC ducts, manhole taps and many other construction projects. Virtually any project that uses concrete can require core drilling, and it must be done with care in order to ensure that the overall integrity of the existing structure is maintained.

Our custom designed concrete core drilling equipment allows our technicians to execute smooth and perfectly sized concrete holes that adhere to your exact specifications. Core drilling into asphalt or concrete may be necessary to make way for other underground structures or to accommodate existing construction involving underground manholes, plumbing or sprinkler systems. A broad range of commercial projects, especially in the transportation realm, require core drilling in the early stages. Maintaining the integrity of the existing concrete surfaces as much as possible is a major concern during core drilling.

We offer the following state-of-the-art machinery and services for core drilling in Texas and beyond.

The process of core drilling typically involves similar techniques regardless of the project that requires it. To ensure that the drilling is accurate and efficient, the drill core is anchored in place. Once it has been appropriately lined up, the drill bit can be mounted on the equipment. The crank is then engaged while water is used as a coolant on the drill. Once the concrete has been drilled to the required depth, the whole core can be removed along with the drill core and bit.
