Gordon Cain from Calgary
2 reviews Calgary, AB
10/10

We were delighted to have Mario and crew return to our place. They did our fancy aggregate driveway a few years ago, so we were pleased they would return for a simple broom finish back patio project. Mario’s crew were able to bring men and equipment required to demolish our 60 year old patio without any damage to the landscape or our new siding. The patio was removed, the underlying washout repaired and a new patio poured. Specs were well above what competitors were suggesting, and the outcome looks great and will no doubt solve our drainage issues, since it is tamped and filled underneath, and correctly sloped to drain water away from our foundations. Mario and crew are pleasant folk to deal with, and did and excellent job.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review Gord. It was a pleasure working for you the first time and more recently this Summer.. We absolutely appreciate the opportunity to work with past clients. No matter the size and scope of the job, we will always do our best to accommodate. The negative drainage situation with the old patio was definitely not ideal and needed to be addressed. You should be good to go now for at least the next 60 years! Enjoy your new outdoor living space and please thank Linda for the wonderful baking we received. It was delicious and much appreciated!

We were extremely happy with the work and final product done by Concrete Renovations. This was a big job removing rocks and cement patio blocks, digging up the pathway, laying the groundwork for the cement. Mario made some excellent suggestions which we went along with and were very pleased. Mario is a very honest and knowledgeable man and his crew are of the same high standards as he is. Alexander headed up the work crew who went above and beyond. They arrived on time and kept at the job till completed. The cleanup afterwards was second to none. I would highly recommend this company in a heartbeat if quality of work is what you are after.

Thanks so much for your kind words Val. It was our pleasure to complete the project for you. You made the process easy for us as you trusted in us and our ability to give you a great final product. You treated the team more than fair and spoiled them at times as well. We truly appreciate you taking the time to write this review and are so glad you are happy with your new walkway and steps. It sure cleaned up that area nicely!

We had garage, driveway and sidewalk work done by Mario and his crews. They did an excellent job, going above what was specced in order to do it right after issues were uncovered.
Everyone was a pleasure to deal with, and the result is exactly what we wanted.
We also had a neighbour come by and pass on her complements on the crew - no yelling and swearing by the crew while they were working.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mario for any work he quotes on.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review, Jim. We sometimes uncover surprises, thats part of the game when you are breaking out existing concrete. Within reason, we try to absorb the cost small modifications because we prefer not to nickel and dime our clients. In your situation it was a little extra labor and concrete, but it gave us a final product we can walk away feeling great about. Very well worth it, and we appreciate the fact that recognized that. Enjoy your new driveway and thanks to both of you for your confidence in CI and for the wonderful baking, it was delicious!

We have a challenging and steep sloping front yard and we worked closely with Mario at Concrete Innovations to come up with a design to enhance the access to our home while improving the curb appeal.
Concrete Innovations does not take short cuts. They are incredibly hard working and Mario is the most honest guy. The job was started and finished in just a couple of days, it was amazing.
We love the elegance and quality of our exposed aggregate stairs / sidewalk. You can definitely count on Concrete Innovations to bring lasting value to your project.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with CI, Monique. Your project definitely had it's challenges, but once completed, made such an amazing transformation to the curb appeal of your home. The design we came up with really worked well, considering the variables we had to work around. This included the deep excavation that was recently completed for your sewer replacement, that went right up the middle of your front yard. Also, your hard work on the landscaping finished the project off beautifully. Great job!

Concrete renovations worked on our neighbours property, sidewalk and driveway and did a fantastic job so we used them for a sidewalk path and were not disappointed, since then we have recommended them to friends, two of whom have used them and are extremely happy, we have used them for another project and again extremely satisfied, Mario is very creative and adds amazing suggestions that we have taken advantage of each time and his suggestions really added to the projects.
We would probabxly not use another company for our next project,

Working with Mario and his team was painless. The quote was accurate, the timing precise and the final product is beautiful. We were so pleased, we had them back to do another project and had the exact same experience.

I would (and have) highly recommend them.

We very much appreciate you taking the time to write a review Pam. The old wood deck at your place had definitely seen better days. Replacing it with an exposed aggregate patio and steps made a huge difference in your backyard. We appreciate you trusting us with your project and referring us to others. You are a fantastic person/client and it was a pleasure working for you. All the best Pam!

The project included excavating existing gravel in a restricted space on the side of our home. They then had to build the forms for the stairs and the adjoining ramp. They completed the project in one pour as opposed to a dual pour as was being proposed by other contractors. My neighbour noted how good they were at keeping the site clean & tidy and not leaving any tools or materials on their lawn. We were very impressed.

We very much appreciate you taking the time to write this review Max. Your job was definitely a challenge. Walkout basements usually are. The complexity of prepping and pouring the steps and the ramp at the same time is not for every contractor. It was fun and a first for us to complete a project with that design.

We were very happy with the service Mario and Herb provided when we wanted to update our walkway. Herb was very professional and took the time to explain what he was doing and the reasons behind it. The walkway looks great and the design is much more functional than what we had before! We will pass your name onto any friends that are looking at getting work done.

Crew was punctual, clean and worked late into the evening to complete the job. We will be hiring them again this year to do new aggregate front steps and landscaping assistance.

Mario is very approachable and had excellent suggestions on design. He knows his trade and has an experienced crew backing him. We enjoyed getting to know him. He is an outstanding contractor. We felt he and his crew genuinely wanted us to be happy with the end result and we are!
