Concrete Garage Pads in Edmonton
A strong garage starts with a strong foundation. At Edmonton Concrete Ltd., we are experts in every step of the process, from local regulations and planning, to proper subgrade preparation and concrete mix selection. Our garage pads are backed by our combined 37 years experience laying concrete in the Edmonton area.
Why a Quality Garage Pad Matters
A garage pad forms the basis for your garage build, serving as the foundation for the whole structure, and later as the floor of your garage. A well-installed garage pad supports the weight of your vehicles and resists a wide array of contaminants: from gasoline and anti-freeze, to good old-fashioned road salt. Even more important is what happens below the surface: Alberta’s intense freeze-thaw cycles mean that correct ground preparation and concrete choice can make a crucial difference. Our experienced team gives you a quality installation from start to finish, and results that will hold up just as well decades from now as they do today.
We design and build each garage pad from the ground up to meet the needs of each homeowner and each property.
Design and Permitting
We begin by consulting with you to determine the ideal placement, square footage, and thickness for your garage pad, ensuring that it will match the structure you plan to build above it, and that it will provide the most solid foundation possible. Once you are ready to proceed, we help you to navigate any local permitting requirements and regulations necessary to get the project going.
Whether you are replacing a previous structure, or starting from scratch, all demolition, excavation and removal is handled safely and cleanly by our experienced team. Once the site is clear, we begin preparing it to support the structure.
Subgrade and Subbase
The ground is leveled, and then compacted to stabilize the underlying surface. A subbase of several inches of compacted gravel or crushed rock is often added, giving the concrete slab the most solid foundation possible.
Pouring the Concrete
Once the subgrade is prepared, wood forms are placed, reinforcing steel or wire is set, and the slab is poured to the specifications laid out in the design plan. We use concrete mixes specially designed to survive and perform in Alberta’s harsh climate, and we are experts in grading and surface preparation, ensuring proper runoff, traction and durability.
Curing and Sealing
We finish the process by making sure that the new surface retains the correct moisture level to cure to maximum strength and toughness, and then finalize the job by cutting expansion joints and sealing. From start to finish, we stand by the quality of our work.
