Our passion is to design and build one-of-a-kind concrete projects. We hold ourselves to the highest standards. We are experts in the design and installation of architectural concrete features such as walkways, driveways, patios, retaining walls, and concrete stairways.
Driveways are the most often installed hardscape element that we pour. Concrete driveways may be finished in a variety of ways, ranging from stamped concrete and broom finish to exposing aggregate with varying degrees of light architectural washes and more. To include some green into your driveway, we may install grass or artificial turf, which is becoming more popular on the west coast. When it comes to outside hardscape, driveways are often the single most expensive investment. In addition to looking great, having a high-quality driveway will increase the value of your home.
Decorative concrete patios are an excellent addition to any outdoor living area or backyard remodel, providing more space for family gatherings or creating a comfortable and dynamic backyard environment. As concrete contractors, we are capable of creating concrete patios of any size, shape, or style. Following the patio’s construction, it’s time to choose the colour and finish. Color may be applied in a variety of methods, each of which results in a distinct appearance. We can create any desired surface, from smooth to textured/stamped concrete, from broom finish to light sandblasted or exposed aggregate.
After pouring and curing the concrete patio, we add structural and ornamental saw cuts.
Stamping concrete is done by imprinting patterns and textures onto it while it is still wet. Each project will also be unique because of the wide range of designs and colours available. In terms of aesthetic appeal, stamped concrete takes the top spot among our decorative concrete options. Size, style, and design all have a role in determining the price. The most costly utilize several colours, borders, patterns, and grouting for maximum realism, while the simplest use merely texture.
We can build any sort of concrete wall, whether it’s a concrete planter wall, a retaining wall, or a high-end architectural wall. Concrete architectural walls may be made in a variety of ways to convey a desired impression or design. Rustications/chamfers provide a fascinating pattern when used in construction. Cam lock or snap ties provide another appealing pattern on stripped and cement foamed concrete walls. On the concrete, we employ high strength mixtures that leave minimum honeycombing and a stunningly smooth paper faced finish.
Concrete stairs, structural steps, floating concrete steps, and landscaping steps are all common features in many residences. We can provide you with the construction of any of these types of steps you need. We provide stair nosing, custom forms, and a variety of finishes in a variety of colours, allowing you to customize each step to your specifications and taste.
We have been creating concrete steps, walls, and fountains for over 25 years. As seen by our work, our custom forming capability significantly exceeds industry standards. Forming concrete is essential to a concrete project’s success.
When thinking about concrete repairs, it is very important to determine whether or not the concrete can be repaired, if it is affecting the overall structural integrity of a concrete pad or structure, or if the concrete should be removed and replaced. As professional concrete contractors we will find the proper solution. There are a multitude of situations that could require a concrete repair such as; cracked concrete, sunken or heaved concrete resulting in tripping hazard, cosmetic repairs, or structural repairs. If concrete is cracked, the size and width determines how we will approach the repair, oftentimes the crack will have to be ground out so that we can fill the crack with an epoxy or cement based patching material. Structural repairs are often cracks in walls revealing rebar, or cracks in parkade walls, floors or beams. For repairs like this it is very important to address them as soon as possible to make sure all structural properties are restored.
A light acid wash is often given to a smooth surface for the purposes of both aesthetics and traction.
Acid stains in a variety of colours are used to colour the concrete. If you’re searching for a tan, red, brown, or mahogany colour, this is a great option.
One of the most frequently utilized finishes is Broomed Finish concrete, which is applied to exterior concrete. A soft brush is used as the last finishing step on air entrained concrete as the final finishing step.
Concrete Countertops are poured by hand on-site and come in a variety of colours. After seeding the surfaces with aggregate, countertops may be ground. Additionally, a penetrating sealer may be utilized to provide additional protection.
Remove the old concrete in order to create space for the new. A variety of concrete structures are removed by us, including driveways, patios, and other types of concrete. We have all of the necessary demolition tools on hand to get the job done.
Occasionally, concrete may be repaired. Due to the high cost of replacement, structural concrete and walls are ideal solutions. On the other hand, smooth surfaces and driveways are not. Let us determine which choice is the best.
We utilize the most effective sealant available for concrete projects. Acrylic sealers are the most often used kind of sealer, followed by penetrating sealers. The sealing treatment for concrete may be applied to a range of surfaces, including driveways, patios, walkways, and stairwells.
