Garage Pads/Shed Pads
Garage pads are a big part of a new house build in Calgary, they are also something that gets asked for on a regular basis during renovations as well. Sometimes people think they can cut corners on the garage pad, and not do the concrete correctly. At Bedrock Construction we believe that every part of the job is important, and that includes things that you often don’t see or think about like the foundation, the re-bar, the concrete and the process.
A garage pad needs to be thick enough for this climate and for the intended use. The rebar that is used and the way that it is used is also a critical part of the process, it needs to be done right. The concrete also needs to be sealed properly so that it has maximum strength and maximum durability.
With a garage you also want proper drainage and sloping so that water and snow and ice get dealt with properly.
You also need to consider the cost of a concrete pad, and make sure that your investment goes all the way. Check out our cost in Calgary article.
Garage Drainage Solutions
Bedrock Construction has a number of options when it comes to Garage or even driveway drainage. We know that there are a number of people in the city of Calgary that like to not only work on their cars but also help other people with projects too. So we have the ability to help you with whatever kind of drainage you are looking for. From water to waste we can get it done right.
Often the driveway is the first thing that someone sees when they arrive at a house, and not only can they look great, but they can also be super functional and durable. The driveway will definitely affect your curb appeal, and house value, it will also showcase your style and home to people. It may also make you feel great about coming home each day.
We can do all different kinds of designs and finishes for your driveway including putting water underneath it so you don’t have to shovel the snow.
We have a number of checks and balances to make sure that the material we use is top quality, and that the project, when finished is the best possible quality it can be. We also work within budgets and make sure that timelines are tight.
Patios and sidewalks
The biggest advantage of concrete when it comes to a patio or a deck is flexibility. Obviously there are a number of other materials that you can go with including wood and brick but concrete allows you to do somethings like stamping, colour finishing and other design elements. It also doesn’t have to be replaced like some woods and can be poured exactly where you need it to be poured.
Concrete is also cheaper to do than interlocking brick and doesn’t have the maintenance problems, concrete is a great solution for sidewalks.
Concrete pads are also great for other projects like small garages, workshops or even backyard storage sheds. It provides you with a lot of flexibility and gives you options.
Concrete Restoration, Rip-out and Repair
We also offer a removal and repair service. As a demolition company, we can renovate a lot of projects that other companies cannot. Let us know if there is something that you need to fix up.
This project below is a great example of repair work that we did to make an exterior door more accessible for wheelchair access.
Calgary Concrete FAQs
There are so many different kinds of concrete solutions in Calgary, due to the nature of the climate and the needs of the people that live here. A concrete company or concrete service has to take all of this into consideration. There’s the weather, the moisture, structural requirements and of course design elements like decorative concrete. If a concrete contractor is doing a concrete project for you there may be some additional questions that you have, here are the ones we get asked the most.
What is Considered Small Concrete Jobs in Calgary?
Small concrete jobs are typically projects that take a few hours to a day or two at most. These types of jobs also don’t require a large crew or a lot of concrete to get the job done. Think of your typical walkway, small concrete pad, or even a simple step upgrade.
We would also consider any type of pre-cast concrete installation or even a concrete restoration project (based on scope) to be a small concrete job.
What Does Concrete Repair look like in Calgary?
Concrete repair can take on a number of different shapes and sizes. From concrete driveways to basement floors to concrete patios each type of concrete application could need a repair from time to time. Usually, it means assessing the issue and providing a plan for restoration or repair. Click HERE to find out more about our restoration and repair services.
Most concrete services in Calgary can also do restoration and repairs to concrete projects that need to be fixed up. Concrete repairs can usually be done quickly and are budget efficient.
What is Exposed Aggregate Concrete?
An exposed-aggregate surface is obtained by placing concrete and then removing the outer ‘skin’ of cement paste to uncover decorative coarse aggregate (either batched into the concrete mix or seeded onto the surface). Most concrete services will offer this type of design, but you will need to make sure that it is part of the project, as it is not the default. Another example of concrete design is called stamped concrete.
What is the difference between Residential and Commercial Concrete Projects?
There really isn’t any difference between residential and commercial projects, as far as the concrete is concerned. At the end of the day, it’s still rocks and water. However, there are a number of nuances that go into the design, execution and safety requirements. When compared with residential concrete, commercial concrete usually has greater demands placed on it in terms of structural performance and durability. Commercial concrete floors and pavements often require a stronger concrete mix design and heavier reinforcement, such as post-tensioned slab construction.
Residential concrete doesn’t have to withstand the same amount of foot traffic that commercial concrete does.
