Thinking of giving your basement floor a facelift?

Yep, fall is now upon us and outdoor projects will cease over the colder months ahead. Time to turn our attention to interior updates and renos again!

Are you thinking of giving your basement floor a little facelift? In our current real estate market one of the home improvements with the best return on investment is actually a finished basement. After all, a cozy basement can serve as the heart of any home – one of the rooms where most families spend a ton of their time.

Remodels these days centre around the type of floor finishing you’re going to select for your basement. From luxury vinyl, tile and laminate, to carpet and engineered hardwood – such a variety of materials, hues, tones, and colours from which to choose!

But wait a minute, don’t discount decorative concrete as an option. It’s such a unique & versatile material!

Most people dismiss concrete because it sounds like something you’d only use in an outdoor setting – for a driveway, walkway or patio for example. But decorative concrete can make one of the most beautiful and long-lasting basement floors. With new resins and colour options, concrete now has a polished, lustrous finish that rivals any of the other options.

So if you’re considering a basement floor makeover, but haven’t yet made your material decision, get in touch with us here at Hardscapes. Call 403-547-5597 and we’ll provide you with all the details you need to know about concrete finishes and we’ll explain why it’s such an excellent option for any basement!

Patio time’s just around the corner!

It’s that time of year again — time to consider your yard and outdoor space and ways to make it especially enjoyable this summer.

If you’re considering a concrete patio project, now is the time to put your plan into action. Concrete is one of the most popular and attractive forms of decorative finishes. It creates a textured, natural surface adding dimension and depth.

Just like the interior floors in your home, exterior concrete can have as many different looks and finishes. Coloured and stamped concrete can add beauty and design. There are now so many different coloured finishes that you would need to use a colour chart to decide which would be appropriate for your project.

Get in touch at 403-547-5597. Our versatile solutions will meet the specific needs of any exterior concrete project. We will not only ensure it looks fantastic, but that it will last a lifetime.

Thinking of doing a DIY concrete patio pad this summer?

You may want to think twice! It’s actually much harder than it looks and if you mess it up you’re in for a full day of de-construction just to get back to square one.

For one thing, getting the concrete mix right is key. For example, too little water and the particles in the mix won’t stick together. But, adding too much water weakens your concrete. When that happens your aggregate or rock that is in the concrete begins to sink lower in the poured area. That leaves the lighter weight cement and sand at the top which can lead to very quick pitting and damage to your poured area.

Not only that, there are a great number of additives you can use to improve the strength of your concrete. Plasticizers and hardeners help it set quicker and fiberglass strands will add strength. It’s very important to get the ratio perfect.

The professionals at Hardscapes are expert at working with concrete. Their designs and colours make any backyard concrete pad outstanding. Stamping and polishing features combined with our artistry can make it look like beautiful custom stonework.

The images below are from a project we recently completed as part of a patio renovation. A flake broadcast over both new and old concrete to bring it all together for a gorgeous finish for outdoor entertaining.

Give us a shout today at 403-547-5597. Our team of professionals are ready to discuss your design ideas and get to work tackling your concrete patio project for you. It will be poured, cured, and ready to enjoy over the warm summer months ahead.

   

Have a vision for your summer outdoor space?!

It’s that time of year again – time to think about outdoor living! Concrete is a great choice for creating an outdoor summer space – the perfect material for a beautiful, cozy patio. Concrete patios can have many different looks and finishes — a multitude of design options to suit your unique preferences.

Coloured Concrete can add beauty and design to your patio. There are now so many different colored finishes that you would need to use a colour chart to decide!

Stamped Concrete can have the look and feel of any stone or brick surface you can imagine. Everything from stone pavers to naturally worn stone pavers. A great option for any backyard concrete patio.

Stained Concrete can add a durable and beautiful colour to your patio with hundreds of colours and finishes from which to choose.

Stencilled Concrete can leave a look of an open area rug to enhance the look of your concrete surface. A great conversation starter : )

Exposed Aggregate along with smooth concrete sections is a beautiful option for your new patio and can be manipulated for any design requirement.

Be proactive! Start planning to extend your living space with a cozy concrete patio.

If you’re considering a summer patio project and don’t have a clue where to begin, give us a shout at 403-547-5597. We look forward to discussing your design ideas.
