The Different Types of Saw Cutting & Which Is Best For Your Project





Saw cutting is a common technique used in the construction industry for cutting or removing concrete, asphalt, or other hard materials. There are different types of saw cutting techniques, and each one is best suited for specific projects. In this article, we will explore the different types of saw cutting and which is best for your project.

  1. Flat Sawing

Flat sawing, also known as slab sawing, is the most common type of saw cutting. It is used for cutting flat surfaces such as floors, pavements, and bridge decks. Flat sawing is a fast and efficient technique that can cut through concrete, asphalt, or other materials up to 24 inches in depth. It is commonly used for creating expansion joints, removing damaged pavement, and cutting trenches for electrical or plumbing systems.

  1. Wall Sawing

Wall sawing, also known as track sawing, is used for cutting vertical surfaces such as walls, foundations, and columns. It is commonly used for creating openings in walls for doors and windows, or for removing sections of walls or columns for renovation purposes. Wall sawing is a precise technique that produces clean, accurate cuts without damaging the surrounding material.

  1. Wire Sawing

Wire sawing is a technique that uses a diamond wire to cut through concrete or other hard materials. It is commonly used for cutting large structures such as bridges, dams, and towers, or for cutting irregular shapes or angles. Wire sawing is a versatile technique that can cut through materials of any size or shape, making it ideal for complex projects.

  1. Chain Sawing

Chain sawing is a technique that uses a chainsaw equipped with a diamond chain to cut through concrete, brick, or other hard materials. It is commonly used for cutting small or confined spaces such as corners, stairs, or pipes. Chain sawing is a fast and efficient technique that produces clean, accurate cuts without damaging the surrounding material.

  1. Hand Sawing

Hand sawing is a technique that uses a handheld saw to cut through concrete or other hard materials. It is commonly used for cutting small or irregular shapes, or for cutting in hard-to-reach areas. Hand sawing is a precise technique that can produce clean, accurate cuts, but it is typically slower and less efficient than other saw cutting techniques.


Choosing the Right Saw Cutting Technique for Your Project

Choosing the right saw cutting technique for your project depends on several factors, including the type and thickness of the material, the size and shape of the cut, and the location of the cut. Here are some guidelines to help you choose the best saw cutting technique for your project:

  • For cutting flat surfaces such as floors or pavements, use flat sawing.

  • For cutting vertical surfaces such as walls or columns, use wall sawing.

  • For cutting irregular shapes or large structures, use wire sawing.

  • For cutting small or confined spaces such as corners or pipes, use chain sawing or hand sawing.
