Concrete Garage Pads, Driveways, & More
We’ve Been Working With Concrete for Over 10 Years
Concrete Garage Pads
The basis of every garage, your concrete pad needs to be built properly (or else it will crack and begin to crumble prematurely). This is where we shine.
Whether you’re purchasing one of our garage packages, or you’re simply needing a great pad, we’re a great choice when you want a proper pour and a great result.
- Dozens of garage pads poured
- Meticulous finish
- Poured to withstand Calgary’s rapid temperature fluctuations
- Customized to suit your space and garage!
Decorative & Patterned Concrete
Patterned concrete is a beautiful way to enhance your home. Whether it’s a patterned concrete driveway, or perhaps a decorative walkway and patio, you’ll love the years of trouble-free good looks concrete provides!
Decorative concrete is perfect for:
- Walkways & patios
- Steps & stairs
- Anywhere you want that marble or patterned-stone look!
Concrete Driveways & Sidewalks
A beautiful driveway creates an incredible first impression. Our driveways and sidewalks are built right – with extra strength thanks to our intricate rebar construction process – and are sure to enhance the look of your home’s exterior.
Choose a driveway that’s right for you:
- Broom finished
- Exposed aggregate
- Coloured or acid stained
Concrete is a Great Investment
When framed and poured right, concrete provides years of trouble-free ownership.
Properly Framed & Square
We don’t cut corners: we make sure your new pad is square, and that our forms/rebar are properly set up. We do it right: we’re after the perfect result!
From a simple broom finish to a complicated palette using integral colour and acid stain, we can finish your pad, driveway, or patio exactly as you’ve imagined!
Garage Pad Experts
A garage is more than a roof over your vehicle’s head: the floor is just as important! We measure twice and pour once, so to speak.
Concrete Garage Pads: Done Once, Done Right!
We pour garage pads. Simple enough: except there is a right way and many not-so-great ways of doing it.
On average the prices for a pad are pretty similar across the board – the main difference is HOW the job is done.
- Base layer of compacted gravel
- Concrete is poured with specific mix design, rebar placement, and in-house developed screed techniques which ensure strength and flatness.
- Flatwork is never “polished” as it contains entrained air in the mix for frost protection. Rather it is machine leveled and smooth troweled and coated with cure and seal.
- Cure and seal: protects concrete during the chemical curing process and provides an easy to clean surface and protection from road salt etc in the future.
- Contraction/relief joints are saw-cut the day of the pour or the immediate days following pour to control shrinkage cracking.
How We Do Things
Interesting fact: it is NOT good practice to overly polish or machine finish an air entrained slab- it can delaminate the surface (you’ve probably seen work with flakes and chunks coming off – likely the reason!). We are experts in the finishing process.
Decorative, Exposed Aggregate,
& Patterned Concrete
Concrete can be a beautiful addition to any space. Many people still think that concrete is a boring, grey slab of stone.
In 2017, this couldn’t be further from the truth!
Decorative Concrete Can Set Your Property Apart
It’s amazing how a beautiful exposed aggregate patio can really set a backyard off. Combined with other textures – such as the brushed steps shown here – and you can create a one-of-a-kind space.
Working together, we will design and build the patio, walkway, or backyard that you’ve been imaging!

The traditional finish seen on most driveways in the Calgary area. A broom finish is easy to maintain, typically requiring little in the way of ongoing maintenance
Creating parts or all of your driveway in exposed aggregate is a great way to making a bold departure from the standard driveway.
Choose a pattern that meets your desired look: whether it’s cobblestone, marble, or another pattern, concrete is a great material to shape and transform!
