Celebrate Canada Day 2015

It’s hard to believe that Canada Day is this coming Wednesday July 1, virtually right around the corner!

Since it falls on a Wednesday this year, it means you’ll have to take two days off (Mon & Tues or Thurs & Fri) to make Canada Day a long weekend. But hey, a 5 day weekend sounds pretty good right about now, right?! Especially given the beautiful weather forecast for the week ; )

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.

Come out & celebrate Canada’s birthday with thousands of other Calgarians!

There will be free activities for the entire family on Prince’s Island including a First Nations Powwow and a Living Flag activity. And Canada Day wouldn’t be Canada Day in Calgary without music and festivities along the Riverfront. Join the fun at the Festival Market with a fantastic line-up of Canadian Bands on the Riverfront Stage, a Food Truck Roundup, and to wind up the evening, an amazing fireworks display.

Happy Birthday Canada!

Garage Floor Resurfacing

Save Cleanup Time!

Are you finally getting around to cleaning up the garage for summer. Once you have packed away all the winter shovels and snow equipment and scraped the road mud and salt from the floor is it looking pitted and discoloured?

While you’re cleaned out, why not get that ugly floor cleaned up and coated?! A polyaspartic coating will do wonders for your garage. It will be brighter, cleaner, easier to clean, and best of all, protected from all that salt and road debris.

Hardscapes Inc. offers solutions for any budget. Gorgeous flake floors and even mica metallic flakes for those that like to eat, sleep and play in their garage, as well as solid color for those with more of a utilitarian need. These coatings are 100% UV stable, extremely abrasion resistant, and highly chemical resistant.

Many garage floors can be done start to finish in just ONE DAY! That’s probably faster than it took you to clean it up.
