Our old 14 x 58 ft. driveway was crumbling after about 40 years. We hired one contractor who kept putting us off for a start date and so we cancelled their contract. I called Wade at Concrete Replacement Experts and explained the situation that I was in a bind and winter was approaching. He said that since they were just finishing another job in St. Albert, his crew could be at my house to start my driveway the next day. And they were there as promised! A very pleasant difference from the other contractor.
Concrete Replacement Experts had the old driveway and sidewalk jackhammered out and removed in a day on Wednesday. They brought in road crush and packed it down the next day. The following day Friday they installed and tied the rebar, all on small "chairs" so that they rebar would sit in the middle of the poured concrete, not on the ground at the bottom. Early Saturday morning two cement trucks and a concrete pumper arrived and had the whole driveway poured in 1 short hour! The concrete finishing crew went to work and the job was done by mid-afternoon.
We were very pleased with the whole job, from Wade and his crew's good communication, to the useful tips they gave us, the quality of the work, the short time it took, the friendliness and reliability of the workers (thanks Rick and crew!) and especially the final result. Many neighbors stopped by to say the work looked great and asked the crew for a brochure since their driveway needs replacing too. Concrete Replacement Experts even pressure washed the street when the job was done and put in new topsoil around the edge of the new driveway. How good is that!? They completed the job Tuesday by saw cutting the expansion joints in the driveway. See the attached photos to see the finished "masterpiece."
We are very pleased with all the work and the new driveway!

I'm glad we were able to fit you in with our tight schedule. Rick & the guys put in a fantastic effort and got it wrapped up quickly even though we we're down a guy for a few days.
I'm glad it all worked out even though you were put off by another company.
Your friend in Edm who you referred us to is going to go ahead and replace their driveway this year as is your neighbour on the next block. I know they visited your project a few times and spoke with you again today.
Thank-you for telling everybody how happy you are, it really means a lot to me and I'm very grateful for that and this review.
