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.

Considering a non-skid finish for your garage floor?

Check out the images below of one of the garage flooring projects Hardscapes recently completed. We used a polyaspartic coating with metallic pigments to give a long lasting, incredibly durable and easy-to-clean flooring system.

Introduced in the 1990s polyaspartic became a new class of coating. Because polyaspartics can be formulated with slower reaction rates, they can be roller-applied or spray-applied with conventional paint sprayers without the use of solvent. Polyaspartic coatings are 100% UV resistant and will not age or yellow, have a non-skid texture which ensures safety and provides years of easy maintenance.

Oh, and it looks amazing too!

There’s still time this summer to give your garage floor a facelift! Give Hardscapes a shout at 403-547-5597 for more information or to discuss your concrete project ideas.
