Looking for a unique basement floor?

Yep, fall is just ahead and outdoor projects will cease over the colder months ahead. Time to turn our attention to interior updates and renos again!

Are you thinking of giving your basement floor a little facelift? In our current real estate market one of the home improvements with the best return on investment is actually a finished basement. After all, a cozy basement can serve as the heart of any home – one of the rooms where most families spend a ton of their time.

Remodels these days centre around the type of floor finishing you’re going to select for your basement. From luxury vinyl, tile and laminate, to carpet and engineered hardwood – such a variety of materials, hues, tones, and colours from which to choose!

But wait a minute, don’t discount decorative concrete as an option. It’s such a unique & versatile material!

Most people dismiss concrete because it sounds like something you’d only use in an outdoor setting – for a driveway, walkway or patio for example. But decorative concrete can make one of the most beautiful and long-lasting basement floors. With new resins and colour options, concrete now has a polished, lustrous finish that rivals Continue reading

Consider quartz broadcast floor for heavy-duty use applications

Hardscapes recently completed a quartz broadcast flooring project for an oil field service company. We installed this floor through the shop lunchroom, hallways and bathrooms. With the quartz broadcast finish, you’ll get more of a monochromatic look.

Quartz broadcast flooring is an incredibly durable, seamless, non-skid floor resistant to stains from oils and chemicals, easy to clean and antibacterial which made it a fantastic solution for this heavy use industrial application. Check out our images below. 

Quartz broadcast flooring is ideal for retail and commercial environments, plants and warehouses, schools and healthcare facilities, as well as residential applications.

Considering a non-skid finish for your garage floor?

Check out the images below of one of the garage flooring projects Hardscapes recently completed. We used a polyaspartic coating with metallic pigments to give a long lasting, incredibly durable and easy-to-clean flooring system.

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, have a non-skid texture which ensures safety and provides years of easy maintenance.

Oh, and it looks amazing too!

There’s still time this summer to give your garage floor a facelift! Give Hardscapes a shout at 403-547-5597 for more information or to discuss your concrete project ideas.
