Create perfect concrete structure every time

Even though concrete is a substance that can be easily mixed, you can really run into problems if it is not worked properly. These issues include scaling, discoloring and shrinkage to name a few.

Discoloration or discoloring is one of the most common.

If you are using the same materials, mix and batch, your concrete should have a consistent color. Changes in concrete color can occur just by using two different cements or if a chemical from a job site gets added to the mix. Even different water sources can change the color of the concrete.

Solving discoloration problems:

  1. Discuss your tolerances with the supplier
  2. Water must be completely evaporated before concrete can be finished
  3. Make sure the entire surface is uniformly cured
  4. Use a consistent form release agent

The experts at Hardscapes create perfect concrete structure every time. If you have a concrete project you’d like to get under way, give us a call at 403-547-5597.

Flake broadcasts floors are just one of many flooring options

Flake broadcast flooring has a scattering of decorative flakes sandwiched between the base coat and the finishing coat. The flakes are either polymer (plastic) or reflective metallic, also known as chips, and come in a wide range of colours and sizes. The flake system has a granite or stone appearance.

Surface preparation is the key to all of our coating jobs. We take prep very seriously as it is the leading cause of failures in coatings. Some manufacturers offer a 20 year warranty on their products, however, if the floor hasn’t been prepped properly, those manufacturers will not replace the product and the client is left to battle with their installer.

The key to a successful coating, like any construction project, is a contractor with integrity! Hardscapes maintains long-term relationships with manufacturers, suppliers, and clients alike by providing high quality products with high quality installation.

Flake broadcasts floors are just one of many flooring options that Hardscapes is proud to stand behind. Want to learn more about these products and systems? Give us a call at 403-547-5597 to discuss your specific needs. Watch our video below:

Wine Store Floor Restoration

Another gorgeous reflector floor created using the Elite Crete colouring system. This particular project involved reviving an old wine store floor.

Our concrete flooring systems are poured in place and completely self-levelling. They must be properly prepared before an epoxy coating is applied to achieve the best results. After Hardscapes gave this old floor a diamond grind, some patching, and an Elite Crete pt1 epoxy application the old well-worn floor found new life again. 

These floors are abrasion-resistant, moisture-resistant, slip-resistant, and chemical-resistant. Truly unique seamless flooring solutions make a statement with colours that can be blended to complement any environment. Even better, they’re very easy to clean and affordable — in fact, the cost-effectiveness just cannot be beat!
