We know how complex remodeling can be. We will provide the guidance and expertise you need to complete your project to your exact expectations. Most remodeling projects begin with demolition, which has been our specialty for the past 28 years. We work on interior and exterior projects, and our crews are dedicated to customer satisfaction.
We are the most experienced, most reliable resource for demolition in the Denver area. We will help you make smart decisions that will minimize costs and maximize quality and safety. Your bathroom demo or kitchen demo will begin with a consultation, during which we will provide a proposal and an estimate in writing. This ensures that you get exactly what you want while eliminating the possibility of unwanted future costs.
Following your consultation, we will inspect your house for hazardous materials such as asbestos or lead paint and make sure that proper remediation procedures are followed. We will double check to make sure that electricity, water, sewer, and gas are disconnected during deconstruction in order to prevent complications. Before beginning demolition, we will collect salvageable materials that can be resold, recycled, or donated to ensure that nothing goes to waste.
At Industrial Contractors INC, we pride ourselves on our ability to complete every restroom and kitchen demolition in a safe and timely manner. We pay as much attention to construction cleanup as we do to planning and deconstructing. When we finish a job, our construction clean up crew takes care of junk removal, hauling all unwanted material away with our company tractors and dump trucks. We will leave your site perfectly clean and even prepare it for rebuilding or remodeling.
Our mission is to provide efficient, cost-effective demolition service that will make your whole remodeling process easier and more affordable.
CONCRETE & ASPHALT SAW CUTTING
Anyone working on a structure made from concrete, reinforced concrete or any form of masonry is familiar with the need to make various types of modifications in these hardened materials. In many cases, these modifications take place on flat, horizontal surfaces such as interior floors or parking lots. At one time, the only way to penetrate a hardened, flat surface was to bring in a jackhammer. However, jackhammer use comes with a number of regrettable drawbacks, including poor control over the accuracy of the cutting process and the creation of difficult-to-handle rubble piles.
For these and other reasons, construction managers have largely abandoned jackhammer use and now rely on specialized flat saws, which come equipped with tough, diamond-tipped circular blades. These modern pieces of equipment offer a number of important advantages, including:
Precise, predictable cut lines
Easy cutting through a wide range of material thicknesses
Increased project speed and efficiency
Simpler removal and cleanup procedures
Some flat saws are relatively small and hand-operated. However, professionals also frequently rely on larger walk-behind models mounted on wheeled carts. This portable equipment layout makes it easy for a trained operator to make accurate cuts. It also makes it possible to maintain the safety standards needed to minimize the risks for jobsite injuries.
img03Asphalt Cutting is implemented to make highly accurate cuts in asphalt surfaces. A highly experienced contractor will use a flat saw to expertly cut asphalt for the purposes of demolition, development, and other projects. From asphalt roads to driveways, asphalt over concrete and parking lot cutting.
In the hands of a skilled operator, these saws have an extremely wide range of potential uses in structures made from concrete, reinforced concrete and/or masonry. Common examples of these many uses include:
Creating expansion joints (also known as control joints or movement joints)
Creating the trenches needed to install building utilities
Accessing building utilities for needed repairs or replacements
Removing damaged segments of material
Repairing serious cracks
Making the openings required for certain kinds of ductwork, and
Making the openings required to install staircases and elevators
Cutting openings for windows
Cutting openings for doors
Enlarging previously cut windows and doors
Making all kinds of flush cuts in vertical or angled material
Creating vent openings
Creating overhead doors
Modifying existing walls
Creating the openings required for vault installations Making the cuts needed to install stairs, and Performing the complex cuts needed to make chamfered edges Sawing also frequently plays an important role in the demolition of horizontal structures. In addition to performing well on floors and similar indoor surfaces, this type of saw is also an excellent option for work performed on the outdoor surfaces of structures such as bridge decks and roofs.
A properly equipped saw can also cut through surfaces made from asphalt. This type of work requires a switch to a specialized saw blade designed to handle the typical mixture of pitch (i.e., tar) and aggregate materials found in these surfaces. Common reasons for asphalt cutting include:
Removal of damaged segments of pavement during a larger repair process Preparation for the repair of isolated cracks, and The creation of various kinds of trenches
A commercial remodel can be an large project that many businesses choose to undertake instead of building an entirely new facility. A business that doesn’t have the property to expand may choose a remodel to maximize the efficiency of the space they have available. This can be a lucrative move for a company that needs to grow but does not have the financial means to invest in an entirely location and building.
Just like a new build, a commercial remodel has several stages. In most cases, the following stages are used in a commercial remodel project:
Planning and design
Pricing and bidding
Engineering and purchasing of materials
Structural repair and re-design
Finish out process
Clean up and removal of debris
Companies that choose to undertake a commercial remodeling project need to hire a general contractor who has experience with this type of construction. Unlike a new build, the framework already exists. They must know how to alter existing structures and maintain structural integrity. The contractor must be able to work with all types of sub-contractors who specialize in various parts of the construction process.
The complexity and duration of a remodel is greatly impacted by whether all of part of the building will remain occupied during construction. Working around employees, customers, students, etc. often involves multiple phases of moving people, furnishings, etc. Getting your design and construction team in place early in planning where a building will remain occupied produces creative ideas on how to sequence demolition, renovations, utility relocations, etc.
A commercial remodeling project can take a simple structure and turn it into a glamorous showcase, depending on the desires and the budget of the client. The first thing the owner must do is come up with a general idea of what they want the property to look like. This will give designers an idea of what needs to be done, the amount of materials that will be needed, and what the estimated cost of the project will be.
Egress windows are large openings that offer a secondary exit in case of an emergency. They can also add more natural light and make your basement feel more inviting.
Basement bedrooms and living spaces are required to have egress windows. Living rooms can be offices, TV rooms or workshops. This mandate also involves unfinished basements. Egress windows are important and serve as a peace of mind in case a house fire were to happen.
Building codes mandate the size of basement windows. This allows for a quick exit in an emergency. According to the International Residential Code, basement windows must have:
An opening width of at least 20 inches.
An opening height of at least 24 inches.
A net clear opening of at least 821 square inches—or 5.7 square feet.
A sill no more than 44 inches off the floor.
If your basement windows are beneath ground level, you will need to have a well dug underneath the window frame. This well must be at least 36 inches wide and 36 inches long. If the well is more than 44 inches deep, it will need a fixed ladder or steps.
Using timber or concrete blocks in the well makes it uncomplicated to add steps. Plus, you can incorporate a couple of small landscaping features, like crushed rock or potted plants.
It’s acceptable for basement windows to be under a deck or porch, but there needs to be enough clearance for an average-sized adult to exit. There should be at least 36 inches between the top of the window well and the bottom of the deck or porch joists.
Because basement windows are a way out, they must open from the inside. Any screens, grilles or bars need to be removed from the inside without keys or tools.
It’s also vital that basement windows can completely open. The window sash shouldn’t obstruct the opening. This allows your family to quickly exit—or first responders to quickly enter.
