A Little About Concrete Hero

Pete Catalano grew up in Schaumburg IL and graduated from Illinois State University and Roosevelt University. During his summer breaks from school he worked with his father Sal who was an old-school concrete contractor, replacing driveways and patios. Sal came from Italy and was a machine when it came to concrete. For Pete, the work was tough and dirty but extremely satisfying and he fell in love with concrete. After college Pete went on to become a high school business teacher.

After teaching for 5 years, Pete decided to leave the classroom to get back into concrete and start a business.   However, he didn’t want to build with concrete but instead wanted to save it. He knew first-hand how expensive it was to replace concrete and how much of a hassle it was for customers to go through such a project. He wanted to help property owners avoid having to replace their concrete at all. So he went on a quest to discover and learn about the best solutions to extending the life of concrete and from there Concrete Hero was born.

Today Concrete Hero is the Chicago area leader when it comes to offering services that restore and protect concrete. These services include polyurethane concrete raising, concrete coatings, cleaning, sealing and caulking – all of which help customers extend the life of their concrete and avoid the hassle of an expensive replacement.  

We are passionate about being able to offer customers solutions that extend the life of their concrete, saving them time and money.

Why Repair and Protect Concrete?

Concrete is amazing stuff but it doesn’t last forever, especially if its not maintained. For many, when they see sunken, cracked and worn concrete the first instinct is to replace it. At Concrete Hero, we feel that’s not always the best solution for a few reasons.

Save Time & Headaches: Replacing concrete is a major construction project that involves permits, heavy equipment, possible damage to surrounding landscape and buildings and multiple days to complete.

Save Money: Concrete leveling, repairing and sealing concrete reduces the chance of needing to replace it.   With the average driveway replacement being around $6,000-$8000, A small investment in our services prevents the need for costly work in the future.

Save the Environment: Many don’t realize this but the concrete industry is one of the largest producers of carbon dioxide gases creating up to 5% of worldwide man-made emissions of this gas. You can help save the environment by saving your concrete.

Level. Protect. Save!

We had a proposal for garage floor coating and exterior concrete cleaning, lifting and sealing. We had the garage floor done first, since the concrete was deteriorating and weren't sure about it's condition. The garage floor turned out great, so we decided to have the concrete work done. This also looks great and we are happy with the result.
