We bring a complete solution to you for taking care of your property:
- Asphalt crack hot sealing
- Full 3″ blacktop layer over compacted base
- Catch basin and drainage replacement
- Speed bump construction
- Line painting

Custom Concrete Footing
Custom footings can poured in areas where paving bricks are present to properly install in-ground bollards or to bolt down items such as bike racks, park benches, and garbage receptacles.
Fitting a concrete footing in between removed pavers that are usually laid in a staggered pattern helps to minimize disruption to the surrounding ground supporting adjacent pavers. It also makes the walkway more stable by preventing small pieces of paving stones being needed to fill in a square cut – those small pieces easily move or crumble over time, creating trip hazards.
Concrete Grinding Solutions
Concrete grinding can be used to solve a number of issues with concrete walkways and is more cost effective than slab jacking or removal and installation of new concrete. Our diamond coated industrial concrete grinding equipment can handle any concrete grinding job you require. Grinding is a great solution for:
- Removing trip hazards between uneven slabs
- Improving anti-slip performance on smooth concrete surfaces
Re-leveling Sidewalk Pavers
Interlocking pavers bring great decorative style to a property’s sidewalks. In some ways they require more maintenance than concrete sidewalks, but that maintenance can also be more easily performed. The common issue, especially in the Greater Vancouver area, comes from settling of the base underneath the pavers. Ground water can erode the base causing areas to sink.
Maintaining these walkways requires removing the pavers around the problem area, re-installing addition sand base, compaction and leveling, and then re-installing the pavers.
Concrete Sidewalk Removal and Replacement
For damaged sidewalk or driveway slabs, we can completely re & re (remove and replace) with new concrete. A variety of finishes can be made including broom-swept, aggregate, and stamped. Sidewalk slabs generally need replacing due to vehicle damage, or shifting and breaking due to root upheaval.
