Another Canada Day is virtually right around the corner

What are we celebrating anyway?

Canada Day celebrates the birthday of Canada. On July 1, 1867 Canada became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act – formerly known as the British North America Act.

This year we should take a moment to appreciate our country and the unity and strength we have shown during the COVID-19 pandemic. While there have been serious social and economic costs, our adherence to the restrictions put in place have made a difference. Let’s keep it going…

Happy Birthday Canada!

Looking for perfect concrete structure?

Even though concrete is a substance that can be easily mixed, you can really run into problems if it is not worked properly. These issues include scaling, discoloring and shrinkage to name a few. Discoloration or discolouring is one of the most common.

If you are using the same materials, mix and batch your concrete should have a consistent colour. Changes in concrete colour can occur just by using two different cements or if a chemical from a job site gets added to the mix. Even different water sources can change the colour of the concrete.

Solving discoloration problems:

  • Discuss your tolerances with the supplier
  • Water must be completely evaporated before concrete can be finished
  • Make sure the entire surface is uniformly cured
  • Use a consistent form release agent

The experts at Hardscapes create perfect concrete structure every time. If you have a concrete project you’d like to get under way this summer, give us a call at 403-547-5597. We’d be happy to answer all your questions and give you suggestions.

Instantly improve your garage

We install showroom quality, non-skid, durable, easy maintenance garage floor coatings

Some 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. Here at Hardscapes we can restore your garage floor’s appearance and life span.

We use polyaspartic coatings which are incredibly strong and resistant providing years of optimum wear & tear. These non-skid textures improve safety and are exceptionally easy to clean and maintain.

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 and have a non-skid texture which promotes safety.

This May long weekend will look a little different

With the Victoria Day Weekend approaching, there are still many public health restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and many businesses and services will be closed.

Unfortunately it won’t be May long weekend cottage life and camping as usual either as all National and Alberta parks are closed to visitors and Parks Canada is recommending to ‘stay home’. If you are planning on heading out, be sure to check your local area rules and regulations beforehand.

Even though our weekend dreams may be dashed, it’s important to remember that these circumstances aren’t forever. There will be many more long weekends ahead to enjoy when safe to do so, and with everyone working together to get through this, hopefully that time isn’t in the too distant future. Let’s do our part and make the best of our uncertain times.

In the meantime, it’s going to be a gorgeous summer-like weekend and the perfect time to engage in activities that help you relax and decompress. When back to business, if you have a flooring project in mind give us a call at 403-547-5597 and we’ll get back to you shortly to discuss how we can assist in bringing your Continue reading

We’re still working in the midst of all of this uncertainty

Here at Hardscapes our business remains operational to serve our customers during these unprecedented times. We continue to be proactive about the actions we take to prevent the spread of this C-virus and are committed to providing services during these challenging times in a modified, safe and socially distant way.

Life will resume eventually but now that daily traffic is at a minimum this may just be the perfect time to give your floors a facelift and bring them back to life. 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.

Here are a few things to consider when contemplating a concrete overlay:

  • the conditions, wear and tear your floors be exposed to
  • certain polished surfaces might not be appropriate for wet conditions
  • high traffic areas may require a darker colour to give the floor a longer life and keep maintenance to a minimum
  • this type of surface when coated Continue reading

We are surrounded by COVID-19 reminders

With near daily reminders about the challenges of COVID-19, even though they are well-meaning messages, they can become exhausting. That said, the COVID-19 virus and infected carriers could be anywhere. Better we continue to think ahead about the actions we can take to stay healthy and prevent the spread of this illness, don’t you think?

If we all do our part and continue to follow the experts’ recommendations, our “new normal” has the potential to help us get through this health challenge more quickly. Read COVID-19 Workplace Tips for Employees for the right information about healthy habits to follow.
