Concrete driveway

I am very happy with my new driveway. I had in mind what I wanted and with a few suggestions from Orazio, they made it happen. I will definitely contact Tora Concrete when I have another project.

Exposed aggregate walkway & front stairs

This is the third concrete project Orazio and his crew have done for us. The quality of workmanship is exceptional. We've had nothing but complements on our new walkway - Thank you Orazio...it looks just like how I imagined it would. We will always recommend Tora Contrete Ltd. for anyone looking for a "good concrete guy".

Take Care,

Thank you, Pat and Cindy. It's truly been a pleasure working with you guys on your concrete projects. This last one was a bit bittersweet as all your concrete work is now complete. We greatly appreciated your patience in waiting for us to get there, your trust in us to achieve your vision and your support and feedback throughout the project. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Backyard patio and pathway

Tora Concrete was great! I called to schedule a quote and Orazio came later that day to view the project and get me a quote on a pathway. The next week I added in a patio and it was no problem at all - updated quote the same day. Work was done quickly and on time, everything looks fantastic. Highly recommend!

Exposed aggregate patio

We had a stamped patio poured in June this year by a different contractor and it turned out to be disastrous. It sloped toward our back door , was poorly stamped and was a strange pick colour. Orazio and his crew came and removed it (430 sqft) in mid July. They removed it very efficiently. They took extreme care while working in some tight spots and cleaned the site beautifully. They then prepped the site and poured a new patio in exposed aggregate. Orazio’s choice of colour was absolutely perfect. He brought some curves into the shape making it very pleasing to they eye and it certainly enhances our backyard. The project was completed in a very timely manner with great attention paid to every detail. Our backyard was left spotless after each stage of completing this project. The cost was very reasonable which included demolition and replacement. Orazio has certainly restored our faith in excellent workmanship. Thank you, Orazio to you and your crew! We look forward to working with you next on our garage project.

Quote Request

I contacted Tora Concrete via email for a quote on some restoration work. I received a call from Tora within a couple of hours to let me know this project was not the type of work they do but provided me with the name of a company to contact for help. Great service, great response time , much appreciated.

Beautiful Patio

When we met and spoke to Orazio we knew that we had met a guy who would do a good job and was very knowledgeable about cement. We were looking to build a 10‘ x 26‘ exposed aggregate patio for our backyard, which would have a barbeque area as well as a sitting area. One of our concerns was about the slight slope in our backyard, Orazio was able to address our concerns about drainage, and build us a patio with the correct slope for water drainage but doesn’t affect the sitting area. He and his team worked efficiently and quickly. When the patio was finished they put all the dirt back around the patio, and cleaned up the area. Our final product is a beautiful patio that we will enjoy for many years. We would highly recommend Tori cement!

Exposed aggregate walkways

We had Tora Concrete install exposed aggregate concrete walkways by the house and in the backyard and we are very happy with the beautiful results. Orazio is a true concrete craftsman who takes pride in his work and it shows. He offered suggestions that we never thought of such as the curves that made the project unique and beautiful. He and his crew completed the project in a timely manner and they really pay attention to the details that contribute to a successful project. They respected our property and cleaned up thoroughly each day. We never felt they were here to just get the job done as quickly as possible but rather they took the time to do it well. I especially appreciate the attention they took to elevations and slopes to ensure proper water runoff. Orazio was quick to respond and offered a competitive quote near the end of last season but wasn't able to fit us in before winter so we appreciated that he honoured the quote when he was able to complete the project this spring. He is also very responsive to any email or phone inquiries. I am a self-professed perfectionist and Orazio and Ian happily answered my questions during the project and tolerated my "supervision". If you are considering a concrete project, Tora Concrete comes highly recommended.

Hi Howard. Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. We always treat our clients' properties like they were our own and it's so nice when someone notices. Thank you also for your patience and for waiting till we could get there. There are so many variables in this business it is hard to schedule so it is greatly appreciated when clients understand. Enjoy your summer!

A job well done

We hired Toro Concrete to remove and replace our front step. Orazio and his crew are extremely professional, involved both my husband and I in any trouble-shooting decisions, made recommendations to improve our project and completed the job in a timely fashion. I was extremely happy with the outcome of our project! Orazio was also very responsive to any e-mails or phone calls regarding the quote or questions that we had. Very pleased with this service.

Thank you, Renee (in Calgary - not sure why Homestars inserts Toronto). You have a lovely home and it was a pleasure to add to its appeal with new concrete. We enjoyed working with you and your husband to ensure you would both be happy with the outcome, and we appreciate your patience in waiting for us to get there as this has been a very busy year. Stay well!
