Wine Store Floor Update

Remember a couple of weeks ago we asked you to stay tuned for updates on the wine store floor project. After Hardscapes Inc. gave it a diamond grind, some patching, and an Elite Crete pt1 epoxy application the old used up floor have found new life. Who would have guessed that this was the same floor.

Repair a Sunken Sidewalk

Sunken WalkwayIf the ground under your sidewalk has eroded or sunk from settling it can lead to cracking and most often a sinking of the concrete. This sinking creates depressions where water pools and can lead to other serious issues like pitting and staining.

Adding a layer of concrete is over the existing walk is one way to level the area. You can use anything from just plain old concrete to special cement mixtures that can be applied and stamped or colored right over existing work.

These processes can be tricky and if you’re thinking of coloring or stamping your concrete it is always best to hire an expert.

Hardscapes Inc. has all the necessary skill and equipment to make your sidewalk repair a quick and easy event.

Show Your Logo
Concrete floors, like in your corporate office foyer or in your garage, can easily be used to promote your business or display your logo or club colours. With today’s digital technologies high resolution images can be added to almost any surface. You can also engrave or stencil concrete for a different effect.

Really the options are finite so why not put that blank canvas to work and add an image or logo to your bare concrete.

Was it a new basketball court or maybe a tennis court? Possibly a new concrete patio to accent last year’s new deck.

Whatever your concrete project for this summer season, now is the time to put your plan in place.

Hardscapes Inc. can give you all the information you need for your new outdoor concrete project to make sure it looks great and lasts a lifetime.

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.

Happy Holidays!

One of the real joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to say thanks and to wish you the very best for the New Year
