Concrete is a mix of sand, gravel, cement and water, and it is everywhere. You may want to cut some blocks for your yard, cut a wall or slab or whatever you want, but if you are trying to cut it, you have to do it in the right way because it’s actually a hard job to do, and instead of hiring a contractor to do the job and it may cost you a lot of money, you can do it all by yourself if you have the right tools.

To make it easy you have to follow some steps, procedures and use the right tools like the proper blade type, the power of the circular saw…etc.

It also depends on the type of concrete that you want to cut whether it is a hollow core block or reinforced concrete blocks. In fact, there are specific saws that are designed for concrete cutting which are called “concrete saws” but they’re a little bit pricey, but circular saw are efficient and can do it flawlessly

Main Elements of Concrete Cutting

  1. Types of blade for concrete cutting

  2. Type of circular saw

  3. How you can cut concrete with the circular saw

circular saw blade for cutting concrete

There are several types of blades; each has its own use. Actually, the most important thing about cutting concrete is the blade, as we learned before in this guide that the blade is what really makes the cut, not the saw, meaning that if you have the best concrete saw in the world but have the wrong blade, you won’t cut anything and you will end up breaking the blade.

The blade can be made from many materials, but in our case, we will focus on three types designed specifically for our job:

  • Diamond Blades

  • Masonry Abrasive Blades

  • Wet/Dry Cutting Blades

They are all can be used in cutting concrete, but each one has its own advantages and disadvantages. For example:

A masonry abrasive cutting blade is inexpensive, so they are affordable but the bad side is that the cutting speed is not good, you will take a longer time to cut your concrete block as well as they wear so quickly, and you have to replace it from time to time if you have a lot of jobs to do with it.

The diamond blades are even better than the masonry abrasive ones. Here, we are dealing with the strongest material on earth, the diamond. Sure, the blade is not made out of diamond, but only the teeth are made out of a compound of diamond and another reinforcing metal, it’s a composite material. Diamond blades are more expensive; they do not wear easily and stay for a longer time, and if you are a contractor who always deals with concrete cutting jobs, diamond blades will be the prefect tool for you.
