My Concrete Has a Crack...Why?

It's cold... I mean it really is. Is it me or is everyone fed up with the winter this year? I'm even hearing complaints from die hard skiers and snow boarders.

It was all over the news in January, ice quakes - where the ground freezes and expands so quickly it actually cracks and makes booming sounds.

Landscape Ontario held their annual awards night on January 18 and once again it was hosted by City TV's Frankie "Flowers" Ferragine. Considering the bitterly cold weather, the hall was packed and was standing room only.We are happy to announce that we won three more Awards of Excellence this year! Two of the Awards were for two of our projects and one Award specifically recognized our Limestone Finish(TM) as a special feature.

We were once again very proud to be among the very best contractors and award winners and we congratulate them also.
