Time for a garage floor facelift this winter?

Garage Floor CoatingSome experts claim that the fluids that drip from your vehicle and are left unattended are what cause all the pitting and damage to the concrete surface of your garage floor. In Canadian cities, winter climate conditions mean that road and highway maintenance requires snow melting products, so it’s very likely that salt is also responsible for some of that damage.

You don’t have to wait ’til spring to alleviate further damage. Here at Hardscapes we can do garage floor coatings all winter long. Our polyaspartic floor coatings are able to cure even in our cold Calgary winter temperatures. 100% UV resistant, polyaspartic coating will provide years of easy maintenance and it’s non-skid texture ensures safety.

And…it’s not only practical but looks amazing too!

Did you know that radiant heated concrete flooring is even an option?

You may not be building a new home, but if you are thinking of resurfacing your existing concrete basement floors, radiant heating may be an idea you want to explore this fall.

Radiant heated concrete floors can provide both beauty and warmth under foot, resulting in a more comfortable living environment. In fact, concrete floor radiant heating consumes less energy to achieve the same level of comfort, ultimately lowering utility costs.

Radiant floor heating is available in most situations. For newer floors or complete renos, cable forms are installed in the concrete slab when it’s poured, but for but already existing concrete floors, mat form can be embedded with a quick and easy installation in thin-set cement.
