Front yard, side pathway and Back yard.

I recently had concrete work done by Solcrete on my property from my front yard leading down to a pathway to the backyard. Approximately 350 sq ft. I must say that the staff was very professional and thorough with their work. John (Owner) was very respectful and provided positive feedback. They truly went out of their way. And just to make sure that they did what they promised, I watched over them and they truly did not miss a thing.

Furthermore, the day I was suppose to make my payment, I was told of a death in the family. I immediately had to leave the city to go out of town. When I called solocrete, they were very sympathetic and understanding. They allowed me to make the payment when I returned. That really helped.

I was also impressed by the amount of trucks and equipment they brought to the job site and the number of workers they had. All were very friendly. They also sweeped up and cleaned up after themselves.

I cannot speak for the negative reviews but I would definitely recommend them for concrete work. There aren't too many reliable concrete companies out there but Solocrete is definitely a good company. My neighbours are already asking me about this company and are planning to call them next summer for their concrete projects.

Thank you John for the wonderful work you've done for us. My family love it.

(I will post photos soon)

Stamped and aggregate Driveway and walkway

John, Idila and their team are great to deal with, excellent at what they do and very professional. The Solocrete team are highly skilled workers who do a fantastic job. Everyone is friendly and willing to take the time to answer your questions including John who is the owner of the company. John is a very honest individual who takes great pride in providing quality work and ensuring 100% customer satisfaction. We have seen the work of other companies and in our opinion, John's quality of work, his artistic vision, his attention to detail and the passion he exhibits is second to none. We expected great work but John by far exceeded our expectations. The completed job is beautiful and has certainly added a great deal of value to our home. We have received so many fantastic compliments from family, neighbours and strangers passing by on the street. We would definitely not hesitate to recommend John and his team to all of our family and friends! Thank you so much John, Idila and the whole Solocrete team for doing such an amazing job!!! We absolutely love it.

Front and side walkway

We spoke with Frank for a quote and he was very nice and explained the process of what they do and what would happen and we signed with him and gave a deposit. Although the process was nothing what he explained to us. We were told they would let us know a day or two before they would come to start excavation so we can take any plants or bushes out. This was in the fall so it was a good time to transplant. To our unexpected surprise they arrived at 7am with their machines and just started tearing through everything. I lost all the bushes and plants I wanted to keep. The job ended up looking good but there was no communication with us until payment was required. Overall it worked out but a little disappointing.

Stamped Concrete - driveway, front porch, steps, backyard and sideway

Superb customer service and very professional work. John was thorough from start to finish, answering all my questions with 100% satisfaction. I live on a very busy street with lots of passersby whom complimented my driveway.

The Framer/Forming guy (Yvan) was very creative and helpful in designing the project. Alberto did an amazing job in completing the stairs with a bullnose finish. I would also like to thank Victor and Carlo for their excellent work.

I highly recommend SoloCrete to anyone!

Stamped concrete walkway / partial back patio and Jewel Stone porch

John (the owner of the business) is an ultimate professional who believes in quality workmanship and does what he says he will do. He has a team of specialists for the different steps of the stamped concrete process. It was evident that John and his team members are skilled and take pride in doing a good job. They were friendly and ever ready to answer questions.

Very impressed with the end result - already getting good reviews from my neighbours. Using Dufferin Concrete for the concrete is a testament to their commitment in delivering a quality product.

Want to thank John (who exudes confidence and leadership), Adela (great communications), Victor (amazing job on the front Jewel Stone porch and fixing my side gate) and the whole crew for a job well done.

No hesitation in strongly recommending Solocrete if you want quality work/materials at a competitive price.

Stamped Concrete Driveway

Before selecting Solocrete, I actually drove around and saw their work around GTA. I spoke to some of the people who had used them and generally got positive feedback. So then Jon came and gave me the best price compared to the 5 other quotes I had gotten at the time. Due to all this I decided to go with them.

Solocrete has a hugee team of specialized guys who all know what they are doing. The site was always left clean and the work done has been superb. Everyone who walks by gives me compliments on my driveway. Another challenging part of my driveway are 7 giant stairs leading to the main entrance. Jon made sure that those stairs don't move anywhere by creating a strong structure before pouring concrete. I also had Jon put up two 5' pillars on either side of the driveway entrance. Again Jon poured ALOT of concrete to ensure that they don't move either.

Finally, there was a small chip that I noticed this year so called up Jon to ask if he can fix it. The driveway also needed another coat of the sealer because my work was done very close to winter so the original sealer probably didn't get the climate to stick on too well (Jon had told me right then that if the sealer doesn't stick then he will reseal this summer). I am really happy to say that Solocrete kept their word and came back to fix the chip and reseal the driveway. It looks good as new.

Thank you Solocrete for your great workmanship and honesty. Jon's no bs attitude may at times feel a little harsh..lol, but he is really a great guy who has gone above and beyond when called upon. His team also really respects him and I can see why. He is not scared to get his hands dirty when needed, and also knows seems to know everything there is to know about this trade.

I am going to be using Solocrete to work on my side and backyard now and would recommend this company to anyone in a heartbeat.

Thanks Solocrete and Jon.

Great job as always

We had our driveway and porch done 3 years ago and we have our driveway sealed every year but Solocrete. They are professional, on time and do a fantastic job. Our driveway looks like new. Would highly recommend this company.

Driveway and walkway in Exposed aggregate, front patio and back Patio in stamped concrete.

I did lots of research before hiring Solocrete to do this big job, since I’m very detailed person. I only picked the companies that had very good reviews to give me quotations and listen to what they are offering. Solocrete is the best by far. Some companies I phoned they try to push to write a good review in Homestars website as a hint to offer good warranty, if something happens, which would defeat the purpose of the site. Other companies have good reviews on Homestars but you can’t get any phone numbers of any employee and you can’t even get their last name, they also call form “Unknown” number, if they are using the cell phones, which is scary to work with. Solocrete never asked to write any review which was a good sign. John didn’t hesitate to call me from his cell number. He listened to us and offered more than what we expected. He gave us a very competitive price and the team did very neat job. The team was very professional and friendly to us and to our neighbors. The concrete they used is Dufferin concrete, which is one of the best companies for concrete. I don’t hesitate to recommend them for my friends and family. I love every detail that company team did.

Amazing work. I am a realtor and would commend to anyone.

I am so pleased that I choose Solocrete. Hard working guys and amazing skills. when Dufferin concrete pulls up I need front of your house you know you are getting quality concrete and skill. I am extremely pleased with my driveway. Even my neighbour got his driveway done. John is a man of few words and took good care of the project. Very professional. My neighbour got curbs around the flowers so amazing call these guys you won't regret
