Metallic/Reflective pigments produce colourful concrete floors with dimension & depth

Metallic epoxy REFLECTOR™ flooring is extremely popular for its beautiful effects. It has deep, rich mottled colours. We can create various looks using different colours and techniques to give you a durable floor that is unique to your project. Our special colours match existing designs or preferred colours. Metallic epoxy floors fit in any application.

Metallic epoxy floors are fluid-applied and poured in place, fast set for quicker turnaround time. They are completely self-levelling, ultra-durable and unique. The cost effectiveness, compared to other types of floor coverings, just cannot be beat.

Most metallic epoxy floors are less colourful than those portrayed in the images below. There are unlimited colour options, combinations and visual patterns/textures and this flooring system can have gloss or satin finishes. Special colours can match design or preferred colours making each epoxy floor an original reflection of your home or business.

Metallic epoxy REFLECTOR™ floors continue to be popular choices for commercial, industrial and residential applications, and popular among property owners, architects and specifiers.

Many different types of coatings can be applied to concrete surfaces

“Polished concrete is the ultimate no-wax flooring material, where the surface of the concrete is ground to a high-gloss finish.” – Concrete Network.com

Polished concrete flooring systems are a practical choice for any commercial space such as showrooms, restaurants, hotels, retail, big-box stores, office and medical facilities. Polished floors are even becoming appealing to homeowners. These smooth, high-luster floors create an environment that is not only safe, clean and easy to maintain, but aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective.

To achieve a polished finish heavy-duty machines are used to gradually grind down a concrete surface to the desired degree of shine and smoothness. Whether your flooring is old or new almost any concrete floor can be polished with the proper preparation. With our years of experience we can bring your concrete surface up to a beautiful premium quality shine with diamond polishing processes up to 3000 grit.

If you have a questions about polished concrete or would like to arrange a FREE consultation, contact us at 403-547-5597 or email: sales@concretecanada.com. We’d be happy to provide you with the info you need to get your project under way!

Looking for a rich, luxurious basement floor option?

“Rather than produce a solid, opaque effect like paint, stains permeate the concrete to infuse it with luminous, translucent tones that vary depending on the surface they are applied to and the application techniques used.” — Concrete Network

Stained concrete is especially effective for revitalizing dull, lackluster floors. From straight line to circular patterns, we specialize in decorative staining and offer options to create unique designs for new concrete floors or to freshen up your old flooring.

If you’d like to do something with your basement floors but you’re just not sure what, give us a shout at 403-547-5597 to discuss decorative stain as an excellent durable, wear resistant and affordable option.

Concrete floor heating system

Did you know that radiant concrete floor heating is even an option?!

You may not be building a new home this fall, but if you are thinking of resurfacing your existing concrete basement floors, radiant heating may be an idea you want to explore.

Radiant heated concrete floors can provide both beauty and warmth under foot, resulting in a more comfortable living environment. In fact, radiant concrete floor heating consumes less energy to achieve the same level of comfort, ultimately lowering utility costs.

Radiant floor heating is available in most situations. For newer floors or complete renos, cable forms are installed in the concrete slab when it’s poured, but for but already existing concrete floors, mat form can be embedded with a quick and easy installation in thin-set cement.

Have questions or need more information?

Call Hardscapes at 403-547-5597 to discuss how radiant heated concrete can be installed anywhere in your home or garage.

Thinking of giving your basement floor a facelift?

Yep, fall is now upon us 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 any of the other options.

So if you’re considering a basement floor makeover, but haven’t yet made your material decision, get in touch with us here at Hardscapes. Call 403-547-5597 and we’ll provide you with all the details you need to know about concrete finishes and we’ll explain why it’s such an excellent option for any basement!
