Concrete Countertops

Concrete CountertopAre you re-modeling your kitchen? Most remodels these days center around what kind of stone you are going to use for your countertops. Granite, Quartz, Slate, Engineered Stone and many more.

Most people dismiss concrete because concrete sounds like something you would use for a driveway or side walk but concrete can make one of the most beautiful and long lasting countertops. Concrete’s reputation as being not quite perfect as a countertop material has evolved. With new resins and colour options, concrete now has a polished, lustrous finish that rivals any of the other options.

Hardscapes Inc. can give you great concrete solutions for all of you remodeling needs.

Old Garage Floor Hardscapes Inc.Its spring and we all know what that means, time to pull out the lawn furniture and clean up all the stones, mud, salt and whatever else your vehicle has deposited over the winter.

Don’t try to patch them up with some concrete sealer you got from the local hardware store. Save time and money and call Hardscapes Inc. for an estimate on how to beautify, protect and fix your nasty garage floor.

Spring Garage Floor Restoration

Some experts claim that the fluids that eventually drip from your vehicle to your garage floor are what cause all the pitting and damage to your concrete surface.

If you live in a colder climate where road and highway maintenance requires snow melting products and salt then these are most likely the culprit.

If you are contemplating restoring your old garage floor why not consider something just a bit more eye catching.

Concrete Heaving

concrete heavingFrost can damage concrete in many ways. Two of the most prominent are, having the frozen ground heave because of ice crystals forming in the soil, and collapsing due to these ice crystals thawing in the spring. When the weather becomes cold in the winter, frost penetrates the ground and freezes water trapped in the pours of the earth. Water flows from wet to dry so water from below th frost line is drawn up. As it reaches the frost line it freezes. This eventually creates a thick layer of ice. The expansion caused by the freezing ice creates a layer that heaves the ground an equal distance of that layer. Finally the pressure below the concrete can no longer sustain its integrity and cracks.

Filling these cracks can leave ugly jagged lines in your concrete drives and walkways. Professionals like Hardscapes Inc. have many methods of repairing just this kind of winter damage and bring you concrete outdoor surfaces back to their original beauty.
