What Our Clients Are Saying
My husband hired a company to do our driveway... they did an absolutely horrendous job and destroyed all of my perennials but the worst part is we had to rip it all out! Sam and his crew did an amazing job... they took out the mess and did the job the way it should have been done in the first place! They literally saved the day! I would gladly rehire them or recommend them to my family and friends. A true professional job!! They were quick and courteous but most of all they knew what they were doing. Sam recommended we extend our steps which we did and I absolutely love the new look! They won't disappoint!
Julia, Home Stars
And as Home Builder in Calgary, we 3 simple, yet strict expectations of our sub-contractors. Timeliness, Quality of Workmanship, and a Positive Attitude towards our clients, other trades, etc. Sam and his crew form Johnny's Concrete have yet to disappoint. For example on this new inner city duplex, Estimates were provided to us in very short order, and were accurate and professionally presented. Within days, Sam and his crew were on site, seen the project through to completion without any delays, and the quality of the work speaks for itself. Siena Signature Builders continues to recommend Johnny's Concrete for any high end residential concrete needs.

I had Johnny's Concrete pour a 24'x22' garage slab with a thickened edge and a curb wall in June of 2017. The team did an awesome job, kept the work place clean an respectable during the construction phase, and made time for all of my questions. 9 months later, I'm extremely happy with the work they did for me. I'm going to have these guys come back this spring to do my patio and side walkway in the back yard!
Machine, Home Stars
The crew showed up when they stated they would. They were polite, conscientious and hard working. They removed all the existing concrete and had the new sidewalks poured in 3 days and cleaned up the site once complete. I am 100% satisfied with Johnny's concrete and would recommend them to anyone looking for concrete work. Great work!!
Randy, Home Stars
We had a pretty terrible old wooden deck, covering two older sets of decrepit concrete steps at our front door. Matteo from Johnny's concrete removed the old deck and steps and designed a new set of concrete steps that fit the look of our house and the challenges of our uneven driveway. It looks excellent!
V.W., Home Stars
The entire process was straightforward and exactly as Remo described. He was on top of the job start to finish. Priced quite competitively. Not the cheapest, and certainly not the most expensive, but overall the best value. There were no surprises, which is unusual in my experience, and I was pleasantly surprised. The quality of the work appears to be very good. The pad is tied into the house, it slopes correctly so water drains and doesn't pool. The thickened edge supports the weight of our SoftTub perfectly. There has been no cracking or shifting. I watched the entire process and am happy with the workmanship. The finish is exactly what I hoped for, and I really like the look. In short, I feel like I got good value. I even got a massive found rock out of it!

My experience with Johnny's Concrete was excellent from start to finish. Remo was prompt, timely and thorough with his quote and did not pressure me in any way. He was responsive to the questions I raised prior to starting the job. Sam and crew were professional, friendly and amazingly efficient. They tore out my old driveway, walkway and somehow managed to pour and finish the concrete all in one day. It was remarkable. They also tidied up afterwards. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Johnny's Concrete.
Maureen, Home Stars
They did what we asked them to do in a timely and tidy fashion. They were flexible with our small changes and the price was the most reasonable we got for the job. We would use Johnny's Concrete again should the need arise and we'll enjoy our patio for years to come.

Thank you Sam and the crew at johnnys concrete for my exposed aggregate driveway with stamped boarders. I look forward to having my patio done later in the season. Keep up the awesome work guys.

We do some general sub contracting from Johnny’s concrete and it’s always a pleasure working with them. They’re jobsites are always prepared and ready for us to get straight to work, very polite crew, always pay on time, decisive and easy to work with. I recommend this company for any concrete services.
Leonardo Aiello, Google My Business
We decided to work with Johnny's Concrete after getting several quotes and we are so happy we did. Our driveway and connecting steps were demolished and newly poured all within a day and a half. They said they'd be back the day after the pour to remove the forms, and they did, exactly as promised. The job site was tidied-up afterwards. Everyone we worked with, from Remo the Estimator to Sam, Vince and Romeo who did all the demolition and new concrete work are polite, talented, and have a great work ethic. The new driveway and stairs look wonderful, and are a huge improvement to our home's curb appeal.

The team at Johnny's Concrete came in and did a wonderful job on our summer patio. We can't wait to host BBQs all summer out back!
