Core drilling concrete wall in Boone, North Carolina

20 or so times a year we Carolina Core Drill have the pleasure of core drilling for various contractors in the mountainous Boone North Carolina area. So far this year we have core drilled at ASU campus on off Kings St.
This is us parked on the sidewalk in front of the ASU basketball court in early 2014.

We Cored (2) two eight inch holes in the basement for a new air circulation system.

Recently we also core drilled 9 holes in a reinforced concrete wall  for a hot tub in the exclusive Blue Ridge Mountain Club community. Beautiful Part of NC.

It was quite a home at four stories tall with a basement and a crawl space.
It was too dark inside the crawl space where we did the work, but we did have one 3" core drill hole on the exterior of the hot tub for drainage.

and these are the nine holes core drilled into the wall.

this is a picture of the house, at 65% complete at the time we core drilled.

We have and will continue to value our Boone NC contractors in need of our core drilling service.

  1. Concrete drilling services are so cool and are very helpful. These people at this club must have been really happy. Drilling those nine holes so that they could get a hot tub installed here is going to make this club better.

  2. Well they got to have their hot tub! I know it depends entirely on the scope of the job, but how long does a typical job take you to complete? I have heard that some jobs could take seemingly forever, while others could be done in a couple of days. Thanks for the post!

  3. I'll bet it takes some careful calculation to be able to drill so many holes in one wall. I'd imagine that tends to weaken the structure a little bit. I guess you could try to do it yourself, but seeing this makes it pretty clear to me that it's smart to hire a professional to drill holes.

  4. Very good article with pics. Interesting to read. Thanks for sharing such a nice information.

  5. Excellent post. I want to thank you for this informative read; I really appreciate sharing this great post. Concrete floor drilling now has the equipment developed to allow a wet vacuum while drilling for water/slurry protection.
