While the types of residential concrete repairs can range, one of the major reasons this type of concrete is damaged is due to the earth and soil around the structure settling and moving, or wear and tear from mother nature.

Concrete Driveway Repair Vancouver
Repairing a concrete driveway is one of the most common projects we do as driveways are one of the surfaces that take a daily pounding. Repairs and restoration for a concrete driveway usually fall into two categories: repairing cracks or a driveway resurface. When we resurface your driveway, the first step is to clean the surface to remove any dirt and grime that has been built up over the years. Once the surface is cleaned up, we have some tinting and colour options that we can apply to the surface. Lastly, the driveway is sealed to ensure the concrete below is protected. The sealant will last for a few years and take the beating instead of your concrete.
Concrete Sidewalk Repair Vancouver
Concrete sidewalks can require repair or replacement when damage from erosion/weathering and overuse has occurred. Depending on the type of damage to the pathway, it may need to be taken a look at asap as damaged concrete can be a tripping hazard and a danger to pedestrians. When you call our team for a sidewalk repair, we'll analyze the area to see if it's in your best interest to have it repaired or completely replaced.
Concrete Stair Repair Vancouver
Concrete stairs, especially those that are outside or in public space, can receive some heavy foot traffic and exposure to the elements. Stairs are also an area that are typically salted which can further accelerate the damage that concrete can incur. A damaged staircase is something that should be taken a look at as it can lead to potential injury. A lot of our concrete stair repairs are patching up cracks or small cracks that appear in the concrete. Restoring your concrete stairs and getting a seal on it will bring the condition of your concrete to as if it were brand new.
Concrete Patio Repair Vancouver
Concrete patios can range in damages as some patios are covered and other are exposed constantly. A concrete patio that is damaged beyond repair will typically need to be replaced. But a patio with minor damages and in otherwise good condition may be a great candidate for concrete restoration or resurfacing. Resurfacing a concrete patio involves the following steps:
- Repair any small cracks with a sealer or filler
- Clean the patio for any dirt or grime
- Apply overlay on to the concrete patio (different colours and designs are available)
- Seal your patio to keep the concrete protected

Sealing your concrete is an important step to making sure you concrete remains clean and has proper longevity. Homeowners tend to forget to seal their concrete which usually ends up costing a lot more in the long run. If you don't seal your concrete, it much more susceptible to damages and may require your concrete structure to be completely replace as opposed to minor repairs. When you seal your concrete, it repels any moisture that would otherwise enter your concrete and go through the freeze and thaw cycle. It also protects the concrete from UV damage, weathering, staining, and reduces surface cracks. Not only does sealing protect your concrete, it also helps to give it a glossy finish. The difference between old and dirty concrete compared to concrete that has recently been sealed is night and day. Just by sealing your concrete, it can look practically brand new.
