Architectural Concrete Walls North Vancouver

As North Vancouver concrete contractors we know and understand the importance of strong concrete walls as there are many steep grades throughout the city. Our first step on any project is to confirm that the blueprint grades will work with the onsite conditions, and confirming the property lines because you do not want to build past your property line or on a city right of way, many contractors overlook this basic step. Once we have confirmed the above we excavate and we can begin forming the architectural concrete walls. Typically, the most common of our walls is the paper face concrete wall. These are formed using new paper faced plywood, so there is no wood grain left behind on the wall, and with cam lock ties, leaving a decorative uniform pattern of holes in the wall.

A modern contemporary style of building a concrete wall is board form walls. This style consists of using wood boards that we often sandblast to reveal extra grains in the wood. When the boards are taken off it leaves a beautiful wood grain pattern in the wall. There are many options for thickness of wood and types of grain and intensity of grain for this style. We also offer lightly sandblasted concrete walls, and completely exposed aggregate concrete walls. All of the styles listed above also make exceptional planters for the front of your home, a great way to step a steep property and create usable space.​

Texture Stamped Concrete North Vancouver

When you really want to make your home stand out, and gain some ‘curb appeal’ texture stamped concrete is an obvious way to go. Stamped concrete is quite a bit different than most finishes, in that its colors can be much more vibrant and unique. The stamping gives the concrete a three dimensional type of feel, that can mimic different types of stone or other material. Stamped concrete is a great solution if you are looking to replace previous paving stones or brick. Not only does stamped concrete have a much higher structural integrity than paving stones and will not move, it also avoids the problem of having unwanted plant growth, but maintains a beautiful stone look.

Every stamped concrete project is finished with a thorough wash, and a high gloss sealer applied, ensuring excellent quality, durability, and life span. Our Texture stamped concrete is a unique process involving most often custom cutting patterns, using multiple colors and grouting the concrete for ultimate realism. Check out this stamped page to explain the process ( link to our project pages - stamped process)

Concrete Patios North Vancouver

Very much like our wide array of styles for our concrete driveways, we offer the same array for our concrete patios. Iron Trident’s concrete contractors will deliver the ultimate patio layout and design. Grade issues no problem we build multiple level patios and very affordable prices. We offer exposed aggregate concrete, light wash , stamped concrete and the very popular texture stamped concrete. Texture stamped concrete is smooth for tables and striking , making a welcome outdoor living space.. Often the patio is a space occupied frequently by guests or family members, so we offer some fancier finishes that are much less common than a broom finish. Our concrete contractors are highly skilled in making decorative concrete saw cuts, that can often be used to create borders between perhaps an exposed aggregate border, and a swirled float finish center. These saw cuts can also be used to separate different colors, like acid stained or washed borders.

Decorative Concrete contractors North Vancouver

Decorative Concrete contractors
When it comes to decorative concrete the options are almost endless, especially with the many years experience of Iron Tridents concrete contractors in the decorative concrete industry. Let us help you bring the outside of your home to life, creating a functional attractive hardscaped area.. There are many decorative styles. A colorful stamped look may be one option, or if you like more of a rocky look, exposed aggregate or a light sandblast may be the option for you. All of these styles can come in different colors or plain grey if color is not your thing.. If you like color there are many ways to have the concrete colored.
Most times the color is added before the concrete arrives on site. Another way would be to acid stain after the concrete has set ; this method is the process in which the top layer of the concrete is colored. Colors also look great with a float finish or smooth finish. In addition to a float or smooth finish, decorative concrete saw cuts could be used to create borders, separation between colors, and different styles of finish and even different shapes or designs. Decorative concrete is one of our specialties. We welcome any new project and look forward to the challenge each new project offers.

Exposed Aggregate North Vancouver

Exposed aggregate concrete has a highly durable surface for our rainy winter weather and is a great option for this specific climate.. Typical driveways or walkways show this damage much easier, whereas it is much less evident in exposed aggregate. Exposed aggregate is different from the other styles of concrete finishes because the top layer of the concrete gets washed away during the finishing process, or sand blasted off, exposing the rock beneath. We always aim for the cleanest method of exposing aggregate, however it is sometimes not practical to wash, so then we must use the sandblast method, which can be quite messy.
