Hardscapes knows concrete

Weather DamageThis weekend’s temps are definitely frigid -29 brrrr. Extended periods of below -20 can wreak havoc on your mental attitude as well as outside structures and concrete.

The freezing temperature of concrete is approximately 28ºF (-2º C). Concrete does not maintain its strength when poured at low temperatures. Almost 50% of strength loss can occur if the concrete freezes within the first few hours after placement. Temperature affects the rate at which hydration of the cement occurs. Low concrete temperatures will stall the set and weaken the strength.

Hardscapes Inc. knows about concrete and the ramifications of big dips in temperature. We know how to keep it from cracking and heaving and we know how to make it look amazing at the same time.

Call 403-547-5597 to learn more about our products and services or if you have questions you need answers to. If you have a concrete project you’d like to get underway, your can rest assured that Hardscapes will ensure your it runs smoothly from start to finish.

Looking to get your concrete project under way this spring?

The experts at Hardscapes offer a complete line of concrete treatments and create perfect concrete structure every time.

Not too long ago we completed the parkade for the Residences of King Edward in Calgary. Concrete surfaces involve a multi-level process, especially when working with any area as large as a parkade.

The Residences of King Edward parkade had joints filled with polyurea, the slab was densified to prevent salt damage, and finally, line painting to finish it off. Check out the images below to see the finished project.

If you have a concrete project you’d like to get under way this spring, give us a call at 403-547-5597. We have many years of experience installing concrete surfaces and can recommend solutions for restaurants, hospitals, clinics, retail commercial flooring, and warehouse/industrial flooring. Most concrete projects – large and small – are within the scope of our expertise.

A concrete overlay can add years to the life of your floor

As we head into 2021 and Covid-19 still dictates our health guidelines and protocols, here at Hardscapes our business remains operational to serve you. We continue to be proactive about the actions we take to prevent the spread of the virus and are committed to providing services during these challenging times in a modified, safe and socially distant way.

Concrete flooring systems are a practical choice for just about any commercial or industrial flooring project as they create an environment that is safe, clean, easy to maintain. 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 business.

A few things to consider when contemplating a concrete overlay:

  1. the conditions, wear and tear your floors be exposed to
  2. high traffic areas may require a darker colour to give the floor a longer life and keep maintenance to a minimum
  3. certain polished surfaces might not be appropriate for wet conditions
  4. this type of surface when coated with a sealer, is stain-resistant to dirt and grease
  5. installation costs average between $3 – $10/sq ft depending on installation specifics
