Sam Giovanni Cortese - Johnny's Concrete Founder

Johnny Cortese (1950 – 2006)

John Cortese learned the concrete trade as a boy in Italy. In his youth he left home to work in Switzerland briefly before settling in Calgary where he started his business and raised his family. Today Johnny’s sons carry on their  father’s craft. We are proud to continue putting generations of our substantial experience to work for you.

Since 1975 Johnny’s Concrete has completed decades of successful projects in the Calgary Area and have grown to become the first name for all of your functional or decorative concrete needs. Each job is planned and customized with you to suit your needs and consider your budget. Let us add beauty and value to your home or business with a modern aggregate finish, a colored pattern, or one of our eye-catching stamp designs.

Contact us to have one of our estimators meet you on-site for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Our Commitment


We do not ask for a penny until we are done, and you are fully satisfied.

Our reputation for quality concrete services is backed by our long-time accreditation with the Better Business Bureau of Southern Alberta, and by our own lifelong warranty.
Johnny’s Concrete supports you for life and guarantees against defects of quality or workmanship on all work we do.


Driveways & Parking Pads

Whether large or small, plain and functional, or highly elaborate, we guarantee that your new driveway will last for generations.

Stamped Concrete Patterns

Johnny’s Concrete was among the first to adopt this decorative finishing technique in Calgary in the late 1990’s. Today it remains our signature specialty. Select from creative combinations of pattern, texture, and colors to add a majestic, bold decorative statement to your surroundings with a comfortable recreational patio, or a welcoming driveway and sidewalk.
