Need a high performance flooring option? Consider polished concrete

Concrete flooring installations entail a multi-level process, especially when working with any large areas. Commercial, industrial and warehouse concrete flooring projects can be daunting tasks and each floor and every customer’s needs are different.

Our process, including detailed preparation, joint filling and concrete overlay, can make all the difference. Thorough preparation will ensure your project runs smoothly from start to finish. Joint filling will help to protect the joint as well as keep our resin out of the joint, ensuring the joint can move beneath our coating. A concrete 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:

  • 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 with a sealer, is stain-resistant to dirt and grease; only routine cleaning and maintenance required
  • installation costs average between $3 – $10/sq ft depending on installation specifics; please note that more elaborate finishes can cost more

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.
