Here Comes the Cold

Hardscapes Inc. Driveway RepairThere is a bite in the air this morning. Some of the broad leaf trees already littered with yellow. Fall too soon.

There is still time to address some of those concrete issues you were trying to get to over the summer.

Now is the time to get a new surface for your walk or drive before the snow flys.

Like the old commercial said.

The Late Season Concrete Project

Poured concrete patio canadaconcrete.comDid you know that if you know what you’re doing you can pour concrete almost all year round?

That is if the general air temperature is between 10° C and 32° C you should be safe. There are other factors that might determine the outcome like wind and humidity along with water temp have an effect on pouring concrete in less than favorable conditions.

Cold Weather

Temperatures below 0° C should be left until warmer weather or best recommendation would be to hire a pro. Concrete sets slower in colder temperatures so the key to getting it right is to make sure the concrete sets fast.

Here is a cold weather tip to get your concrete set right, use hot water. You could always use a fast setting concrete to pour you your slab but if you really want it done right call someone who does it for a living.

Give us call or email us for more information on how we can get that late summer concrete project done right.

Driveway Damage Stops Sale

Drieveway-CrackWhat is the first thing a potential home buyer sees when they view a property? The driveway. They will either park in it or walk up it as they approach the home. If you think a cracked and pitted driveway doesn’t matter to a potential buyer you would be wrong.

Here is what one agent had to say.

“A new concrete driveway will greatly increase your home’s curb appeal. Better curb appeal can speed the sale of your home. It may be an upgrade that will not increase the value of your home but without repair it might cause your house to not sell at all.”

Hardscapes Inc. is expert at repairing cracked and pitted driveways and garage floors. Don’t wait until your house is up for sale to get the job done.
