Tired of being let down by your regular guy? I want to be your finisher, I always do what I say and won't let you down.
Whatever the situation may be, old, spalding, heaved driveway, or you just need a patio and sidewalk, you want the best possible job. Not only does it have to be functional but it's an investment that should raise the curb appeal quotient of your house.
We are careful to never start a job that we can't finish. Which means, we will never rip up your driveway or start gravelling your patio, and then leave it for a month. When we start something we finish it. You have our attention. That being said, sometimes the Calgary weather has other ideas, so I constantly monitor the weather to avoid starting a job if it's calling for rain. Same goes for thunder shower season, I am very careful and take very few risks with all jobs.
We are a full service concrete company specializing in decorative concrete with over 30 years experience (15 in the Calgary market alone). During our time in Calgary, we have poured literally thousands of driveways, garage pads, patios, and basements. I know how stressful it can be trying to find a contractor that you can trust. With my experience and dedication to customer service, South Island Concrete will help take the stress out of your concrete project. I consider myself to be an honest, reliable, and professional with a commitment to quality workmanship that I stand behind 100 percent. No job is too big or too small. If you only need a broom sidewalk or small stamped patio all the way up to ripout and replace, I am happy to come talk to you and give you a free quote.
Team Behind South Island Concrete
Sandy provided the impetus for me to start South Island Concrete and has been behind me for almost 30 years. She is the head bookkeeper, writes all the cheques, seals all the stamp jobs, expedites men, supplies and equipment around the city, helps customers with color choices, and puts together the best lunches known to man! She is the glue that holds it all together and the company would not exist without her. She has also been told that she is the "best granny in the world".
I started doing concrete in the late 70's as a summer job and when I finished high school I just kept doing what I knew. I moved to Victoria in the early eighties, met my wife, and started SIC in the early nineties. As luck would have it, the economy went bad in the late nineties and I went from 8 employees to none. I was forced to move to Calgary to look for work which turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. Once I got there, I made one phone call, and have never looked back. We love Calgary! Our kids have houses, great jobs and now the grand kids are starting to appear. Life is good, thank you Calgary!
