Be Prepared

The devil is always in the details. In the case of resurfacing your garage floor, the most important detail is preparation.

It doesn’t matter whether your garage floor is fifty years old or part of a million dollar lottery home, if you’re going to update the concrete you have to prepare the surface properly.

Hardscapes Inc. has a reputation for making sure every surface turns out like a million bucks.

Grinding the floor removes paints, glues and any other contaminants, as well as opens up the pores of the concrete to ensure a great bond.

This garage looks great with the rich, dark nightfall colour flakes.

How to Cure Concrete

Helpful Tips

Stopping freshly poured concrete from drying out too quickly is called curing. If left to dry on its own accord, concrete will not develop the full bond between all of its ingredients. It will be weaker and crack mill crack more. The surface might not be as hard as it should be.

+ The form work itself, if left in place, or on the underneath of a suspended slab, stops the concrete drying out too quickly, and can be a curing agent.

+ Spray water onto the formation. A simpler way is to just keep water sprayed onto the slab with garden sprinklers or hand held hose pipes.

+ Use a plastic shield, which basically is a plastic sheet laid on top of the slab to stop the evaporation process. This is one of the most efficient methods of curing concrete.

+ Use concrete curing oils or curing compounds. These compounds and oils now come in a variety of types.

Preparing concrete is harder than it looks. A professional in the field is always a good idea. Hardscapes Inc. has experts who will be happy to help you with all your concrete ideas. Just give us a call at 403-547-5597.
