Stamped concrete can sometimes fail for a variety of reasons. Nevertheless, it ruins the look of the entire patio, driveway or walkways. 


Limited options are available for a new and durable surface. 


Grinding the surface smooth and polishing up to a 400 diamond finish is a beautiful limited maintenance remedy. 

Choosing a densifer, urethane or a polyaspartic top coat, the concrete will be revitalized for many more years of use.

Why is salt corroding my concrete



If you live in Canada, dealing with snow and concrete de-icers in the winter can feel like a necessary and annoying evil. De-icers like rock salt can wreak havoc on your cars, your clothes, and even the concrete you walk on. While the frustrations of salt seem far away there are steps you can take during this summer season to protect your driveway in the winter.



How Salt Causes Damage to Concrete


There are three main ways that salt ruins concrete:

Melts and Freezes the Ice

Salt only melts snow and ice, it does not get rid of them
As they melt, the snow/ice mixes with the de-icer forming salt water
This salt water has a lower freezing temperature and therefore seeps into the porous concrete
As temperatures drop the salt water eventually freezes in the concrete causing it to expand, creating:


Crystallization and Subflorescence

As the moisture evaporates from the concrete the salt remains in its cracksEventually the salt recrystallizes in the pores of the concrete causing:

This process is called subflorescence

Rebar Metal

Salt corrodes rebar metalIf rebar metal is present in concrete the salt will corrode and rust it
The rust will create pressure on the surrounding concrete causing:


As the concrete gets more cracks it becomes more susceptible to salt, which makes it break down faster

How To Protect Your Concrete From Salt Damage This Summer


An easy step you can take this summer is to get an epoxy coating on your concrete driveway.

The treatment will seep into the pores of your concrete and will harden into a glasslike seal
This will prevent saltwater from seeping into the concrete, where the real damage is done
It won't break down when its exposed to salts, cold temperatures, or spilled chemicals
Also makes shoveling snow and ice easier if your floor is exposed to the outdoor

This treatment is much easier and quicker to install during the summer when cold weather and snow won't get in the way of working outside. Taking an extra step now will save you time, money, and wasted frustration in the future!

Basement Floor Coatings



Polished concrete and epoxy coatings have become a common type of flooring used in homes all around the world. Each surface is very low-maintenance and if treated properly can last for years, even in areas with heavy foot traffic.




Polished Concrete


Using polished concrete in your basement has many advantages. Finishing your basement will not only create more living space but it will also increase your home's resale value. Deciding to enhance your concrete basement floor is an easy and cost efficient way to help finish off your basement renovation.

Epoxy Coatings


Epoxy coatings are another option to consider for your basement floor. It is a tough, long-lasting coating that is painted directly onto concrete that has many advantages, a few of them being:

High Class Appearance

When professionally and correctly applied, epoxy acts as a high performance coating that gives a professional look to any garage or workspace.

Moisture and Stain-Resistant

Epoxy flooring is moisture resistant, which makes it the perfect choice for basement floors that get their fair share of flooding. The finish stays fresh for years and wipes clean like a kitchen counter.

Resists Damage

This flooring is impact and abrasion resistant, which means that you can store anything on it without worrying about ruining your brand new floor. Likewise, dropped tools make no impact either, making it great for a workspace

Resurfacing Qualities

If your basement floor is cracked, stained and worn down then an epoxy coating is just what you need to resurrect it. Epoxy coatings are self-leveling and provide a smooth, polished finished that can cover up all the blemishes and failings of your current floor. It’s a great way to refresh your basement and you can even choose from a selection of colors or patterns to brighten your space up.

Concrete Preparation

Most cement floors will require a thorough diamond grind vacuum cleaning and airing before an epoxy coat is applied. However, if you choose to use Garage Enhancements to apply an epoxy coat you won’t have to worry about prepping your garage floor.

Easy to Clean

All you need to clean your epoxy coated floor is soap and water. This is because the coating is designed to resist moisture and stains, so any dirt or oil will come off extremely easily
