Concrete repair is an art

Popular home, garden and construction suppliers would like to make you think that concrete repair is easy and needs no special skills other than a few tools and a strong back.

They like to tell you how satisfied you’ll be doing a concrete repair yourself.

They don’t tell you how unsatisfied you’ll be when you discover that even though you followed all the instructions on the packaging the patch didn’t dry the same colour as the rest of the concrete around it. They also didn’t mention that the repair only lasted for six months before weather and ground shifting pulled the repair apart and left a bigger mess of cracked and broken concrete.

Colouring, mixing and implementing a concrete repair is an art.

Save time and money. Hire an expert. Call 403-547-5597.

Need your industrial floor resurfaced?

Quality from Start to Finish

The industrial floor finish process begins with surface prep. It’s always the key to a successful floor installation. The old floor in the video has been used for many different businesses over the years, and once complete will be home to an extensive car collection.

The process began with a deep grind using a 32” machine that weighs more than 1500 lbs. The combination of weight and the correct diamond tooling ensures a deep grind to fully remove all surface contaminants. We also ran a shot-blaster over the rougher areas to ensure a clean floor down into any divots and depressions.

Once a good clean floor is achieved, we skim the floor out with a floor patching material to fill and smooth the depressions and other deficiencies prior to coating. Once that has dried, a light grind over the patch and we are ready to begin the coating process.

Our base coat of epoxy goes down nice and even with a squeegee and backroll before we broadcast the flake. This client chose a gray and white mix with 7% silver micah for a unique look that will have a gorgeous finish.

Once the base coat Continue reading

Speed the sale of your home with better curb appeal!

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 your home. If you think a cracked and pitted driveway doesn’t matter to a potential buyer you would be wrong.

Here’s 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. We can help today!

Does your driveway have oil or transmission fluid stains?

Ever wonder what stains your driveway more, oil or transmission fluid?

Quite honestly it doesn’t really matter. Either one will leave a nasty stain. If you leave it too long or you have a chronic problem with your vehicle it may be embedded in the cement permanently.

These two fluids left unattended can also lead to pitting in the concrete. Small divots that will let water sit and will eventually crack the surface.

If your driveway sounds like the one above you might consider re-surfacing. Hardscapes Inc. has a surface solution for every driveway situation. Fast and professional, get your driveway looking brand new in no time.
