Saw Cutting control joints is an important step any time you pour a concrete slab. By saw cutting control joints as soon as possible after a slab has been placed you minimize the risk of random cracking caused by shrinkage during the curing process. We offer 3 different options to our customers:
This option is the preferred method to cut control joints. It is an early entry system that involves dry cutting with a lightweight machine. Depending on temperature and humidity a slab can be cut 1 – 12 hours after it has been placed. Cutting control joints this early after placement allows for relief in the slab prior to shrinkage thus controlling the cracking.
This option allows for a more cost-effective way to cut control joints in a new slab. Typically a slab can be wet sawed approximately 12 – 48 hours after it has been placed but may be too late to control random cracking.
