Are You Looking For Concrete Restoration in Calgary?
What does Calgary concrete repair look like?
Typically concrete restoration comes about when the concrete itself begins to deteriorate, usually to the point of being unsafe, or just unsightly. Most people can handle a crack or two, but when the concrete surface begins to be a trip hazard or fall hazard it is time to fix it up.
The other type of concrete restoration is about aesthetics and usually involves fixing broken concrete, wall cracks or reshaping and recolouring pieces of concrete.

- Mudjacking – Mudjacking is also referred to as slab jacking. It is a common method for repairing a sinking driveway. It is very effective and is a good long-term solution. In order for this to work, we need to fill the cavity below the concrete that it is sinking into. So we drill holes into the concrete and then fill it up. This can help not only lift the sinking concrete but also stabilize it for many years to come.
- Polyurethane Injections – These are very common in the concrete industry. When repairing a sinking driveway it is a very similar process. You drill holes in the concrete and inject the foam. It is a little more reliable however because the foam expands after injection allowing for it to fill the cavity. You can really control the amount of lift.
- Replacement. As mentioned above we are a full-service excavation and demolition company and we can handle removing your old broken concrete and then replace it with an amazing new look.

Concrete Repair Calgary FAQ
What is Concrete Restoration (concrete repair)
Concrete restoration is the process of repairing and restoring damaged or deteriorated concrete structures to their original functionality and appearance. Concrete restoration involves techniques like patching, resurfacing, and reinforcing to address various issues such as cracks, spalling, and corrosion.
Concrete repairs or concrete restoration can be done on concrete walls, concrete slabs, and other damaged concrete.
A concrete repair entails identifying the cause of damage, removing deteriorated or damaged concrete, cleaning and preparing the affected area, and applying a suitable repair material, such as mortar or concrete mix, to restore the structure’s integrity and appearance. The concrete repair process may also involve reinforcing with steel bars or fibers, applying protective coatings, and implementing preventative measures to reduce future damage.
A concrete repair usually doesn’t take much time once the preliminary work is done to establish the source of the damage. A good concrete repair will mitigate this damage and produce near new-looking concrete with structural integrity.
How Long Does Repairing Damaged Concrete Take?
The time required to repair damaged concrete depends on the extent of the damage, the repair method used, and environmental conditions. For minor repairs, such as filling cracks or patching small areas, the process may take a few hours to a day, including preparation and curing time.
For more extensive repairs, like resurfacing or structural reinforcement, the process can take several days or even weeks. It is essential to allow the repaired concrete to cure properly, which can take anywhere from 24 hours to 28 days, depending on the repair material and environmental conditions.
Will a Concrete Repair look like New?
A concrete repair will look new, how much it ties in with your old concrete will have a lot to do with the extent of the damage and what detail the concrete repair needs to have. A good concrete restoration specialist will perform the concrete repair in such a way that you shouldn’t notice the old from the new. Being able to completely hide any old concrete scars isn’t a perfect science but a good concrete repair will definitely look better than it did before.
