Concrete Basement Floors

Stained concrete has been around for a long time and it will never go out of style. It’s still a classic look for a cozy basement. Warm colours with some gorgeous mottling for character. With many colour options and combinations, every floor is a “one of a kind”

These concrete floors can even be heated providing not only a pleasant surface to walk on but can help keep your home warm on cold winter nights.

The Canada Sports Hall of Fame

I took my boys to Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame at Canada Olympic Park this weekend.

It was great to see all of the amazing sports history as we get ready for the Olympics this week.

I was very happy to see how great our floor in the hockey exhibit looked after 2 and a half years open to the public. As you can see, The loonie is still stuck in the “ice”

We were honoured to have been chosen to provide the custom seamless floor for the hockey exhibit. Hardscapes Inc. specializes in one of a kind floors. With unlimited colours, patterns, and textures, we create truly custom floors to make your space unique.

Water Damage on Concrete

Will water damage concrete?

The short answer is yes.

It’s called water degradation and can be caused by any number of things. Fire, aggregate expansion, bacterial corrosion, calcium leaching and many others.

With the recent flooding in Calgary many basement floors were damaged by the flood water and backed up sewers.

Untreated sewer water can produce hydrogen sulfide, which is then oxidized by aerobic bacteria present on the concrete surface above the water level. The sulfuric acid dissolves the carbonates in the cured cement and causes strength loss, as well as producing sulfates that can be destructive to the concrete.

Hardscapes Inc. has a solution to this problem. A clean up of the concrete floor and then sealing the concrete with a great decorative coating can preserve and update your damaged basement floor. This is a great alternative to replacing rugs and hardwoods.

For more ideas on how to restore or create your concrete Hardscapes Inc. has the answers.
