Looking for perfect concrete structure?

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 discolouring is one of the most common.

If you are using the same materials, mix and batch your concrete should have a consistent colour. Changes in concrete colour 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 colour of the concrete.

Solving discoloration problems:

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

Are metallic epoxy REFLECTOR™ floors for you?

Metallic epoxy REFLECTOR™ flooring is extremely popular for its beautiful effects. It has deep, rich mottled colours. We can create various looks using different colours and techniques to give you a durable floor that is unique to your project. Metallic epoxy floors fit in any application.

Metallic epoxy floors are fluid-applied and poured in place, fast set for quicker turnaround time. They are completely self-levelling, ultra-durable and unique. The cost effectiveness, compared to other types of floor coverings, just cannot be beat.

Most metallic epoxy floors are less colourful than those portrayed in the images below. There are unlimited colour options, combinations and visual patterns/textures and this flooring system can have gloss or satin finishes. Special colours can match design or preferred colours making each epoxy floor an original reflection of your home or business.

Metallic epoxy REFLECTOR™ floors continue to be popular choices for commercial, industrial and residential applications, and popular among property owners, architects and specifiers.

For more details about metallic epoxies call Hardscapes  at 403-547-5597. We’d love to help you revive your floors!

Thinking about resurfacing your garage floor this spring?

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.

A concrete overlay can make all the difference to tired old floors

Is your office looking a little run down and tired? Does the floor of your store show the wear and tear of years of traffic?

You can bring these tired old floors back to life and give your office, retail shop, plant or warehouse a fresh new look.

A concrete overlay can make all the difference. This type of overlay can add years to the life of your floor and create a specific ambiance designed especially for your environment.

Here are some things to consider when contemplating a concrete overlay:

  • The conditions, wear and tear your floors be exposed to
  • Certain polished surfaces might not be appropriate for wet conditions
  • High traffic areas may require a darker colour to give the floor a longer life and keep maintenance to a minimum

How much maintenance is required?

This type of surface when coated with a sealer, is stain-resistant to dirt and grease. All that’s required is routine cleaning and maintenance.

What is the installation cost?

Costs average between $3 to $10 a square foot depending on installation specifics. Please note that more elaborate finishes can cost more.
