Concrete restoration may be just what you need

Concrete is a standard building material. A good portion of every home built consists of concrete in one form or another.

Concrete is a popular material of choice for driveways, patios and steps. Unlike your basement floor outdoor concrete is exposed to the wear and tear of the elements. Constant bombardment from our Canadian weather can lead to pitting, cracking and flaking, eventually rendering the concrete unsafe or at least unpleasant to look at.

Tearing down and rebuilding a heavy concrete step can cost thousands of dollars not to mention days of demolition, interruption and reconstruction. Hardscapes has other options and a concrete restoration may be just what you need. The cost is about half of a removal and re-installation and the result is considerably more pleasing to the eye.

Hardscapes’ solutions to repair & rebuild your driveway surface

Over the years water, snow and ice, and even city-fed runoff from sewer gutters, can cause erosion under your driveway surface. This leaves your concrete driveway slab vulnerable to cracking, and if not properly repaired, possible collapse.

To solve this problem can entail a dual process.

First, a process called mud jacking pumps high-pressured grout into the void under the driveway through holes cut in the surface. The process fills the space between the foundation element and the eroding soil.

Second, after the elevation discrepancy has been corrected your driveway will likely be left with cracking and the inevitable patchwork to cover the holes made to apply the process.

So that your concrete slab is pristine after the above procedures, Hardscapes has a number of solutions to repair and rebuild your driveway surface. To learn more about our products and repair systems, give us a shout at 403-547-5597.  We’ll find the solution right for your unique issue.

Rejuvenate your tired, plain or aged concrete or simply improve your curb appeal

Yep, we’re all tired of the cold temps of winter and ready to start planning our outdoor projects for spring and summer. If you’re thinking of making some changes to your concrete surfaces, there are a variety of ways to add pattern, texture, colour and interest at affordable prices.

Consider stamped concrete as a decorative option to transform your driveway, walkway, porch, patio, pool deck, sidewalks, and even, basement. Stamped concrete, also known as textured concrete, is a popular option and is available in many patterns and colours.

Stamped concrete is poured just like regular concrete, but patterns and textures are added in before the concrete dries. It is a delicate process that requires some expertise and special tools. That said, it is still less expensive than most other materials such as natural stone or brick.

Hardscapes specializes in refinishing, repair & other decorative concrete services for residential and commercial properties. Discover the details about how we can customize your project and bring your unique design ideas to life.
