If you are looking for options for resurfacing your pool deck – look no further. After researching many different options for resurfacing a very tired and dated concrete pool deck we decided to go with Elite Surfacing and softcrete. From the quoting process to keeping us informed as to when the work would be done etc – Marco and Matt – his lead installer for our project – were absolutely amazing. The crew came and TOTALLY transformed our backyard pool “eyesore” to a brand new oasis! I can’t say enough about this company. Prices are super competitive and workmanship is unparalleled !

Greg Hayward

Marco and team are as professional as it gets.
From a timely, competitive quote to a flexible, well communicated install date then all wrapped up with a meticulous crew who pay attention to details in order to assure customer satisfaction.
I am left with a finished product that gets rave reviews every time someone sees it.
And with a 15 year warranty, if you are in the market for this type of product then you are done looking.

Raymond Colosimo

I would just like to thank Jay and his crew for doing an outstanding job for us ,especially Tyler!The installation and follow up service was unparalleled.I highly recommend Jay of Softcrete GTA East.
Thanks again Jay!

Scott Asselin

We had Soft Crete complete our pool deck 2 years ago and we could not be happier with the product and the way it has stood up to our Canadian winters. Marco’s guys were polite and efficient and did an outstanding job!!
We continue to receive compliments and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marco for your home improvements.

Just wanted to give a shout out to Marco and his crew. From start to finish the professionalism shone through. I never write reviews but I made an exception because for the first time a company actually said and did what they advertised. The true quality shows through in the before and after pictures on their Instagram. I would 100% give them a five star review. His crew needs a big thanks. These guys were so organized and professional. Thanks again Marco!!

Barbara Kerr

Excellent work!!!! We are so pleased with the level of professionalism and quality from Elite Surfacing.

Brad De Sousa

Marco’s Durham team led by Jay were fantastic from start to finish of our pool deck. The professionalism they showed and were available to answer any questions we may have had. I wish all contractors were this enjoyable to work with. Thank you for a wonderful job and would recommend to anyone in the future.

Greg Leja

Marco and his team were absolutely fantastic. The team was neat, detailed and very professional to deal with. The price point was also very competitive. We’re so happy with the end result and we look forward to years of enjoyment by the pool. Thanks a million, Elite Surfacing/SoftCrete !!!


we just had jay and the crew complete the transformation of our backyard pool area and patio into a soft crete playground
we are 100% satisfied with the workmanship, and the professionalism of the entire crew, and the completed product. we have already recommended them to 2 friends, and will continue doing so.
they completed the job in the 2 days they promised they would. i would definitely encourage you to use soft crete, if your looking for this type of surface

Shelley Labatte

I can not believe we waited this long to get softcrete done in our backyard and around the pool. The guys were amazing to work with!! The job was done in a timely fashion. It’s like Christmas for grown ups people. So pleased with the end result we are getting them back to do the front entrance and walkway. If you were ever thinking of sprucing up your yard, this is definitely the way to go. It’s beautiful. Thanks Jay and the boys for all your hard work.

Wayne Dishart

My wife and I had our garage floor done yesterday July 15, 2020. The crew that Marco sent to do the job was professional, knowledgeable and did an excellent job ensuring full clean- up. They were punctual and exhibited an excellent work ethic. Many thanks to Marco and to the crew he sent to do our job. Mary and Wayne Dishart.

Gail Jordan

We just had our pool surround done with SoftCrete and it looks like a new pool ! There were several big cracks in it and this stuff was like magic- totally got rid of it without the stress of having to dig into the concrete.

The guys at SoftCrete were total professionals too- came on time and worked like Trojans on one of the hottest days of the summer no less.

We had quotes from a few other SoftCrete competitors and there was NO comparison- professional installation, amazing product and great value for money too.

Look no further for amazing results done by professionals!

Thanks again SoftCrete.

Colleen Machado

Looks like we have a new pool. We are 100% satisfied!

David White

I was very impressed with Elite Surfacing from the outset! Marco and his entire staff who worked on our deck were very professional. In 2 days they transformed our pool deck into a space that we will enjoy for years to come. I highly recommend Elite and were very pleased that we chose his company to upgrade our Pool area. I was blown away by the work crew, who were very particular to every detail of the project. Their work ethic observed was second to none during the entire time. Thanks again for a job well done!

ted bickell

We had Soft Crete install our new pool deck last week. So happy with the results! They were a very knowledgeable & professional crew. Took the time to make sure the colour mix was exactly what we wanted too. Do not hesitate to book this company!

shannon kubica

This company by far so professional and friendly. Top notch workers that take pride in the work they do so happy with the result. Our home looks so much better now. Very very pleased with the result and will definitely be telling others about this company. Thank you very much for your hard work and great product.

Ana Cole

Excellent service. Marco and his team were great to work with. We appreciate the flexibility offered as our project ran into unforeseen delays. Highly recommended!

Kathy Hajagos

Marco and his team did a fantastic job with our indoor pool area!! It looks and is easy on the feet!! Thanks!!

Wayne Pryde

Excellent customer relations. Owner Marco is always prompt at answering inquires. I’m sure he’s a busy guy but he finds time to ensure your questions are answered.
The staff on site worked hard and were very professional and courteous. This company rocks and their pricing is more than fair.
Would definitely recommend them. And oh, the resurfacing around my pool looks amazing.
Money well spent!!
W. Pryde

Don Campbell

Marco’s crew was very professional and prompt did not take them long to do a great job I would definitely recommend them.

Mario Sousa

100% satisfactory.
Matt and his crew did a fantastic job.
Highly recommend this company.

Jamie Errington

Just wanted to say that I had Jay from Durham softcrete and his crew come and resurface my old and tired pool concrete deck. What an amazing difference!! I asked Jay when he was here for the initial look if he could also do the pool coping. We had the liner replaced in 2019 and the company that installed it, left aluminum tracking that the white coping attaches to exposed. Jay said that it wouldn’t be a problem. And it certainly wasn’t.
Jay’s crew were extremely polite and diligent in their work ethic. And when they were done, you wouldn’t have realized they were here.
If anyone is considering having some very cost effective upgrades to your pool deck without the mess and cost of ripping up or patching and concrete deck, softcrete is definitely the way to go. It completely changed the look of our backyard.
Thanks aging to Jay and his crew from Durham Softcrete.

Christina Secord

We had Marco and his guys come install a pool surround for us in May of 2019. We had an old rough concrete surround before which meant a lot of scraped toes, knees, etc. Our kids were instantly thrilled with the SoftCrete finish, as were we. So much more comfortable on the feet, not as hot as concrete/stone in the middle of summer, and way more pleasant to climb out of the pool onto! Everyone who comes over comments on how great the SoftCrete feels, and we are always more than happy to recommend Marco and his team!

Sadly, come the end of our first season, we noticed some rubber bits starting to separate from the finish. Just a couple at first, but it kept up. I got in touch with Marco and he was fantastic – he said they stood by their product and would come back to have a look and deal with our concerns.

We have a solid 3’ border around the pool, and because we had made it to the end of the first season already, the material had bleached a little in the sun. As a result, had they only replaced certain areas of concern, we would have had visible divisions between newer/older material. We weren’t thrilled with that idea, and Marco again said he stood by the product and wanted us to be completely satisfied with the final outcome, so he committed to replacing the entire deck. 2020 Spring was crazy, and while we were on the list, a lot of people were waiting for their new pools to be finished. We weren’t in a huge hurry, as we could still use our pool in the interim, so we agreed he would come at the end of the season to replace our surface.

I honestly can’t remember now why things didn’t pan out at the end of last season (I think weather, possibly?), but it turned out it was a blessing in disguise. We have lost a lot more material in the meantime, but also confirmed upon opening this spring that we have two leaks at our jets. We decided to replace our (original, 24 yr old!) liner at the same time as the pool is emptied to repair the leaks, and were concerned about Marco coming to complete the replacement this past spring, knowing our pool deck would be affected by the leak repairs.

Marco has been absolutely fantastic about this whole situation!! He has shown us great flexibility and understanding, and is committed to working with us despite all these other factors. He has been waiting patiently for our repairs and liner replacement to be completed (as have we, this season has also been wild, and our liner has taken MUCH longer than originally planned), so that we can properly replace the SoftCrete and end up with a gorgeous finished product we can all be proud of.

A lot of companies get rave reviews when things work out the first time. Not as many can maintain rave reviews when faced with difficulties/hiccoughs. We are so thankful for Marco’s patience and understanding, and remain steadfast in our support of his business and his costumer service! We highly recommend him to anyone looking for SoftCrete for any application, you won’t be disappointed!!

Deanna McMahon

The crew were very professional and went above and beyond when preparing the deck for surfacing. We are extremely happy with the final result and will be recommending SoftCrete and Elite Surfacing to our friends looking for an alternative solution to cement.

Todd Manton

I never ever post reviews but felt obligated to share my experience with Softcrete now that the installation is complete. I had a courtyard area completed and from the outset dealing with Matt S was a pleasure. He was thorough professional and helpful. From the initial quote to the tear out of the old surface communication on timelines was very good.
My particular job was not the easiest and Matt worked with me to address all details.
Installation day arrived and the experience with Matt K and his team ws no different. Terrific professionalism, friendly, polite and engaging. They answered all my questions ( I was hovering around) patiently showed me how the product was mixed etc..
The end result is fantastic and they left the area spotless.
I’m a huge fan of the product and the people.

Laura Jezegou

Everything about the experience ( from the first consultation with Jay to the excellent work on the day of the installation – to the repair work the next day thanks to the neighbours dog who decided to take a stroll around -) was an absolute pleasure. Jay was knowledge, friendly and available when I needed him – and the crew were hard-working and efficient. I’m loving the look of my new pool deck and can’t wait to be sitting poolside.

Karen Folkerson-Walton

Of all the renovations we’ve done to our house, this is likely the most beautiful! Matt and his team were friendly, efficient, and diligent. An effective communicator, Matt always let us know the time frames and what to expect. My husband and I expected to like the outcome, but it was BETTER than expected. We feel we now own a spa-like backyard!! Thank you, Soft Crete!!

Don Curtis

Marco, you have a great man (and crew) representing and installing your product!
“Jay” showed up in a very timely manner to give me a quote and explain the whole process of installing softcrete over our interlock brick.
I was so at ease with his knowledge and explanation of the process, I told him he would get the job on the spot.
So due to heavy rains in the area for days, the job was delayed by a few days, which was no problem, but Jay took it upon himself to keep me well informed of the progress of his other jobs and try to give me his best estimate of when him and his crew would show up to do the transformation on our walkway.
Well the day finally came, the crew and Jay all showed up in uniforms!! (Very impressive)
The crew all knew exactly what job each was to do as soon as they rolled into the driveway. They worked together like a fine swiss clock.
I must also tell you Marco.
Jay and his crew were very, very cautious and respectful of the rest of our property as they performed there job. (Which was a bit difficult because there was flower beds surrounding there work area)
In closing Marco, I just want to let you know my wife and I are very impressed with your product, Jay & the crew you have passed your knowledge onto, and you can be assured we will pass your name on if we know of anyone wanting this service
Thanks Again!!!

Scott and I just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our new pool deck. It is as if we have a whole new pool! I also have to say how impressed we were with Jay and his crew. What a hard working bunch. As a retired educator I was also really happy to see how thoroughly and patiently the new guy was being trained. The whole experience was a pleasure for us as homeowners. Thank you for your great service people.

The Elite Surfacing crew completed our particular pool deck and patio resurfacing job in one day on June 13/2016. It transformed our back yard into something that could be displayed in a home and garden type magazine. The crew was friendly and pleasant. We were more than pleased. The outcome exceeded our expectations.

David Hoffman

Marco and his excellent crew of installers transformed/rescued my old , deteriorated backyard concrete pool deck/patio (approx. 1500 square feet) that had been patched/repatched, painted over several times – cracked and practically unusable and turned it into a beautiful and durable softcrete work-of-art. I can’t speak highly enough of Marco and his very capable crew – extremely professional, efficient, very well organized and good-natured. In my opinion Elite Surfacing is a very CUSTOMER ORIENTED organization!!! The finished product was absolutely amazing!!! The difference between “before and after” is like “DAY AND NIGHT”!! I highly endorse Elite Surfacing – they’re simply the best!!!! I interviewed all the major rubber surfacing vendors in the GTA (site visits, obtained quote estimates, etc.) and I am thankful that I had the good sense to select Elite Surfacing (Marco et al).

Ryan Brown

Marco’s guys did a deck around my inground 16×32 pool. I got 3 quotes from 3 different companies and they were all fairly similar. They did an additional 100sq feet in an area I had grass as well near the shallow end. I had to remove the sod and dig to 4-5 inches in preparation for them. They set up a mixer on my front lawn and used wheel barrows to get the materials into the backyard which worked well. They completed the job in one day in very hot conditions. Overall I’m very happy with the product. It looks great and the kids love it. I would definitely recommend them to others. I hope the product stands the test of time. Only reason I didn’t give 5 starts in the grass took a bit of a beating where they had set their equipment up and I had to pick up several rubber pellets out of my pool but I guess that to be expected. Again I would recommend them to others.

Ryan Brown

Neil Draper

These guys are the best in the business! Not only was their pricing more reasonable than the competition, the whole experience was enjoyable. I had a tight deadline because of a party I was hosting and they worked with my schedule to fit me in. The installers were fast, clean and courteous. I would recommend Marco and Matt’s team to anyone!

Neil Draper

Jennifer Amaral

Phenomenal! The crew that installed around our pool and entire backyard over all the concrete, took such care and attention to detail. They didn’t try and rush the job, kept the job clean and were very professional. The outcome of it all turned out even better then I expected (and I had high expectations), it’s incredible. I can’t say enough positive things about the work, the team and Marco – job well done! Thank you very much.

Jennifer Amaral

Walter Silva

Unbelievable! The most horrific, existing concrete has been transformed to where it is the best looking part of my landscape. The professionalism was exceptional and the customer service was better then I would have expected. These guys deserve more then a 5 star rating!!

Elite Surfacing , FANTASTIC!!! The crew took their time, paid attention to every possible detail, did not rush through the job ( even though it was an extremely hot day). The outcome exceeded my expectations and I am more than happy that Elite Surfacing was the company that we choose to bring my ideas to reality. I couldn’t say enough about Marco and his crew. They truly stand behind their name and work they do. Amazing job and will definitely recommend Elite Surfacing to all of our friends and family.
