Time for a garage floor facelift this winter?

Garage Floor CoatingSome experts claim that the fluids that drip from your vehicle and are left unattended are what cause all the pitting and damage to the concrete surface of your garage floor. In Canadian cities, winter climate conditions mean that road and highway maintenance requires snow melting products, so it’s very likely that salt is also responsible for some of that damage.

You don’t have to wait ’til spring to alleviate further damage. Here at Hardscapes we can do garage floor coatings all winter long. Our polyaspartic floor coatings are able to cure even in our cold Calgary winter temperatures. 100% UV resistant, polyaspartic coating will provide years of easy maintenance and it’s non-skid texture ensures safety.

And…it’s not only practical but looks amazing too!

Hardscapes has solutions to address your garage floor issues. Get in touch today at 403-547-5597 for a free estimate.

Flake Broadcast Flooring Surface Prep

flake broadcast floorFlake 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 basis for 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. Take a few minutes to view our video.

Want to learn more about these products and systems? Give us a call at 403-547-5597 to discuss how we can give you the flake broadcast floor that’s perfect for you.

Consider quartz broadcast floor for heavy-duty use applications

Hardscapes recently completed a quartz broadcast flooring project for an oil field service company. We installed this floor through the shop lunchroom, hallways and bathrooms. With the quartz broadcast finish, you’ll get more of a monochromatic look.

Quartz broadcast flooring is an incredibly durable, seamless, non-skid floor resistant to stains from oils and chemicals, easy to clean and antibacterial which made it a fantastic solution for this heavy use industrial application. Check out our images below. 

Quartz broadcast flooring is ideal for retail and commercial environments, plants and warehouses, schools and healthcare facilities, as well as residential applications.

Considering a non-skid finish for your garage floor?

Check out the images below of one of the garage flooring projects Hardscapes recently completed. We used a polyaspartic coating with metallic pigments to give a long lasting, incredibly durable and easy-to-clean flooring system.

Introduced in the 1990s polyaspartic became a new class of coating. Because polyaspartics can be formulated with slower reaction rates, they can be roller-applied or spray-applied with conventional paint sprayers without the use of solvent. Polyaspartic coatings are 100% UV resistant and will not age or yellow, have a non-skid texture which ensures safety and provides years of easy maintenance.

Oh, and it looks amazing too!

There’s still time this summer to give your garage floor a facelift! Give Hardscapes a shout at 403-547-5597 for more information or to discuss your concrete project ideas.
