Drill several holes near the step’s edge to create a break-away section. The hammer drill with a chisel bit will help you create weak sections of concrete to be removed by striking with the 8 pound sledge hammer. Several swings will be needed to remove the concrete chunks.
How to Remove a Concrete Step?
Removing a concrete step can be a difficult project, but it is possible with the right tools and a little determination. The best way to remove a concrete step is to begin by cutting it into smaller, manageable pieces. If you have the right tools, such as a circular saw, hammer, chisel, and safety gear, you can make the job easier and safer.
First, you will need to determine the size of the concrete step that needs to be removed. Measure the length, width, and depth of the step to get an accurate estimate of the size. This will help you determine the type of equipment you need to use.
Once you have the measurements, it’s time to start cutting the concrete. Start by using a circular saw to cut into the concrete along the edges of the step. Make sure to wear safety gear such as goggles and gloves to protect yourself from the dust and debris.
Once the initial cuts are made, use a hammer and chisel to break up the pieces of concrete. Start at the edges and work your way toward the center. Take your time and use caution when using the hammer and chisel. If the pieces of concrete are large, you may need to use a sledgehammer to break them apart
