AK Services combines state-of-the-art hydrodemolition technology with a highly skilled team to deliver fast, precise, efficient results for a wide variety of projects ranging from concrete structure repair and removal to surface repair and more. Hydrodemolition services use high-powered water jets to break up concrete, providing a smart, cost-effective alternative to jackhammering. Jackhammering is slow, loud, messy, and often damages rebar. Hydrodemolition is a faster, relatively quieter, and much more precise technique for removing concrete.
Contractors and engineers nationwide have enlisted the AK Services Team’s expertise and professionalism to successfully lower their costs and speed up their project completion.
By taking full advantage of a specialty hydro demolition contractor, you gain access to Ultra High Pressure (UHP) volumes ranging from 20,000 PSI to 55,000 PSI. Whether you need surface preparation or complete concrete excavation and removal, the AK Services team can help. For every project, our technicians provide fast, efficient, and neat project completion that contractors and engineers appreciate.
Whether you need as little as a quarter-inch or as much as four feet of concrete removed, AK Services delivers the speed, reliability, and precision your project demands. No matter how much concrete we remove, we leave your rebar undamaged, and your work site free of debris. We also recycle all the water used throughout the process. more
Our team can effectively abrade, cut, and remove substrates including concrete, stone, grout, membranes, coatings, and metals, to prepare a clean and even surface for your projects. Regardless of your application, you get the results you need – fast, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
In our vast experience with several public and private clients across the country, we have developed the equipment and experience to tackle the most challenging projects. Whether you need concrete hydrodemolition, simple demolition or perfectly segmented concrete sections for easy removal and disposal, the AK Service team delivers successful results.
If you have not taken advantage of the powerful potential of hydro demolition services, you are missing a major opportunity to save time and money, whatever the scope of your projects. For more than a quarter-century, hydrodemolition services and water jetting techniques have successfully delivered high productivity and cost-effective, lasting results.
Jackhammers can be effective, but they also have quite a few disadvantages. They’re messy, they’re loud, they produce a lot of dust, and they tend to damage rebar and concrete not intended for demolition. When you need faster, quieter solutions that do not produce hazardous dust and only remove what you want removed, concrete hydro demolition by the AK Services team is the more efficient solution.
With hydro concrete removal, it’s possible to remove concrete down to a preset level, ensuring selective concrete removal. This preserves the sound concrete that a jackhammer would typically pulverize, requiring extra repairs to replace what was needlessly demolished. Our advanced equipment and robotic motion devices that let us achieve an unbeatable level of precision, for consistent successful results.
Due to the high impact nature of jackhammers, they generate a great deal of stress that can produce micro-cracks in the surface of pavement you would otherwise like to leave alone.Micro-cracks not only reduce the structural integrity of the surface, but they also pose problems when it comes to bonding in the future
In most cases, the whole purpose for concrete removal is to replace it with new concrete. With hydro concrete removal, the surface you’re left with provides a far superior bonding surface, so new concrete bonds stronger than it did before, actually minimizing the need for future repair.
At AK Services, we’re constantly focused on giving you the results you need, when you need them – so your project runs as efficiently and smoothly as possible. By taking full advantage of the many benefits of hydro concrete removal, we make it a possibility. After all, why waste time and money repairing the damage caused by jackhammers? Hydro concrete removal gets the job done faster and more efficiently so you stay on schedule.
