With two decades of custom concrete experience and a full team that includes on-site designers and draftspeople, Versatile Concrete is able to apply our expertise to your project in order to see it through reliably and safely from concept to creation. We use our own superior strength proprietary concrete mix that is cast in a controlled environment, not on site. That means our precast concrete is not subjected to the weather or inconsistent conditions when casting. By controlling the environment we give our concrete the time to cure properly, for a consistent, long lasting product.

Our proprietary concrete blend is more durable than industry standard concrete with a higher finish, strength and durability. This concrete mix ensures a long life that will stand up to public use, making it a superior choice for public traffic in urban settings. Exterior products are sealed with an application of polyurethane/acrylic sealer.

We pride ourselves on being able to work on the details with you in order to maximize design and reduce costs. We price our concrete elements by cost per square foot or linear foot and take into account variances for volume, unique design, special form requirements or custom finishes. You can use our quote form to get an idea of the cost of your project. If you decide to move forward, we ask for a 25% deposit which puts you into our production schedule and starts the final design consultation process.

We’re working hard with you to meet your timeline and will always communicate what you can expect. Production times are generally 3-4 weeks.

Our custom concrete products are covered under warranty for regular use for 12 months from installation, when installed by Versatile Concrete. We’ll make sure you have all the information to properly care for your custom concrete element.

Municipalities

Versatile Concrete’s very first client was the City of Kelowna, who brought us (then named New Line Skateparks) on to build the Ben Lee Skatepark. We’ve gone on to work with hundreds of municipalities across Canada and become the world’s premier skatepark developer, which has given us extensive experience working over multi-year planning cycles with municipal clients.

Indoor concrete: clean your concrete surfaces using warm, soapy water. Wipe up spills immediately, as acidic or caustic substances like mustard, vinegar or bleach that sit on the surface for a long time can attack the surface sealer. Do not use an abrasive or chemical cleanser as this can scratch the surface or impact the seal. Reseal your concrete annually.

Outdoor concrete: exterior concrete should be protected from winter freeze/thaw cycles as best as possible. Move pieces indoors for winter if feasible. You can also cover your piece with an impermeable sheet or raise it off the ground if possible. Concrete planters should have stones placed at the bottom before adding soil to ensure adequate drainage.

We apply multiple layers of a food safe sealer to help prevent stain to products like your concrete counters, hearths or furniture. While applying a sealer makes the concrete surface stain resistant, it’s still possible to stain just like limestone, marble or other stone surfaces. We recommend wiping up food or liquid spills right away.

Our proprietary concrete mix is high strength and very durable. Applying a seal adds to the surface being scratch or stain resistant. That being said, concrete is a stone product. It’s still possible to chip, scratch or stain.
