Concrete core drilling or "coring" is the process of drilling round holes through concrete, marble, stone, brick or other “rock like” solid building materials. These holes can be drilled in walls, floors or other flat surfaces. The diameter and depths for these holes are virtually endless. We have the capability and the flexibility to provide diamond core drilling for a wide range of needs. We are experts at core boring in concrete, marble, stone and granite using the latest diamond core boring techniques. 

Diamond coated core bits and high powered drills are the most commonly used tools to cut the holes. These are called “core rigs”. They can be operated in a vertically, horizontally or even upside down. The drills can be either electric, hydraulic, air or gas powered. Electric and hydraulic can be used for both indoor and outdoor use while gas is usually used outdoors only. The core bits consist of a steel tube with diamond segments on the end. They can vary to ½” to more than 20” in diameter. Most of these drills are mounted on a stand that is able to secure itself to the surface you are drilling. They can be mounted by either a magnet, vacuum plate or an anchoring system.

There are several applications for core drilling. A majority of these would include holes drilled for construction "utility penetrations" such as electrical, plumbing and heating, communications cabling, HVAC ducts, computer cabling etc… There is also a use for core drilling for the retail market such as venting for furnaces or clothes dryers.
