Garage pad & sidewalk

I hired a contractor to build a garage and it encompassed from start to finish.
The concrete company he used was Foothills Concrete. I was amazed at how quick the whole process took, from the start of the excavation to finished product was a day and a half. The end result was fantastic.
The crew worked quickly and efficiently. I can not say enough about Chris and his crew. Because of the area I live in, they had more than a few looky loos as well as know it alls about the process, what they can or can't do & when they can start work etc. They needed a lot of patience because of this and I also had a miserable neighbor that didn't want to see a garage go up.
But they worked through it all with a smile on their faces.
Their concrete finisher obviously loves his job because he stays at it until it's just right!
If the garage is built and completed as quickly and efficiently as the concrete work I will be a happy man!!

Concrete Patio and Walkway

I had Foothills Concrete pour my patio and walkway. It was a terrible job. There was crazing and chipping of the concrete. So whenever it rains or the hose wets the patio, the crazing occurs - fine hairlike crack over the concrete. They don't go away completely for at least 3 days. I emailed the owner about it on June 21/12 and never heard back. I phoned the first week of July and talked to the owner. I read about crazing on different web sites and told him what I had read. He said I should be in the construction industry since I know so much about it. Chis said it is caused by drying too quickly and high heat and high humidity. I read the article by ARMCA which says crazing is caused by poor concrete practises; that proper curing practises are not followed. I talked to someone from ARMCA and he said particularly in Calgary where it is windy and dry, there is higher chance of crazing to occur when curing practises are not followed. Armca makes recommendations for proper curing practises and it is up to individual companies as to whether they follow these practises. The owner said he could do a light sandblast. I contacted a concrete restoration company, Concure Restoration, and they strongly advised not to sandblast regular concrete. It will expose different sizes of pebbles and in time they will break away creating an unsitely patioI contacted a concrete restoration company, Concure Restoration, and they strongly advised not to sandblast regular concrete. It will expose different sizes of pebbles and in time they will break away creating an unsitely patio. The owner then said he could stain it. When I asked someone who does concrete staining, He said that the staining, if it is a high quality stain, will last approximately 3 years. The only way to fix the crazing is to replace the concrete which Foothills Concrete will not do.

First Review


Concrete Slab for detached garage, Cement Contractor

Last year we had decided to build a detached garage. After several quotes Foothills Concrete was by far the best priced company for the concrete service that was to be provided. The Foothills Concrete Crew had showed up when promised and when hard at it until the the project was complete. The finisher had done an amazing job and was quite the perfectionist, when he felt something wasn`t quite perfecrt he didn`t stop til it was. The family owned business was a pleasure to work with and from the original phone call to the hand shake at the end.
