There are many instances when it can be desirable to remove the top layer of concrete. If the concrete is newly poured, in may need to be levelled back, or textured in preparation for painting or coating. In other cases, a layer may be removed to obliterate deposits (eg road markings), or because it has become contaminated (such as in a sewage plant).
The process used to achieve this effect is known as scabbling. Mechanical scabbling involves using machines which are similar to pneumatic drills, but with many small heads. Known as a concrete floor scabbler, such a machine chips away the concrete evenly over the area of the block until the desired effect is realised. Concrete scabbling is not a process most builders will undertake every day, and therefore few find it cost effective to own their own scabblers. Instead, most will turn to concrete cutting and drilling companies for their scabbling services. UK builders are well supported by an industry which understands their needs and can offer first class service.
