Gary is semi retired and our pressure wash & seal guy. He plays the drums and is a great artist. Both Mason and Slater are our sons who have helped us a lot over the years and continue to learn the concrete trade while in school and in the summer.


How we started in business

Hardcore Construction started in business using a pry bar, a sledge hammer, a tattered old 1979 Dodge pickup truck and very little money. Folks always called this a really "hardcore" way to work and the name just stuck, so we decided to use it to name our business.

Owner, Myron Smiens was born and raised in Austinville Iowa and has been in the concrete trade over 30 years. Myron and his wife Genet launched their business in Cedar Falls Iowa in 1992 and moved out to the great Northwest in 1997. They began business in Oregon in 1999. 

"We have come a long way in both distance and experience from our humble beginnings in Iowa to our current business location in Warren Oregon." We have fond memories of those "Hard Knock" first years and are continually learning new skills in our trade. Hardcore Construction LLC, has assisted in community building projects, such as Habitat for Humanity, Veterans Memorial Park, Church projects, Columbia County Christian School and special needs in our community.  


Providing customers with innovative concrete designs and exemplary customer service. 

We are dedicated to using the highest quality products and techniques available to achieve excellence in our trade and meet the unique design preferences of our customers. Hardcore specializes in decorative and traditional concrete hard-scape designs, patios, sidewalks, driveways, outdoor kitchens, interior floors, decks, traditional slabs, stamped, acid stained, engraved, exposed aggregates etc..

How our Estimating Process Works

Hardcore Construction LLC does not give quotes over the phone. 

Our business practice is to schedule an appointment where we are able to accurately determine all the factors contributing to a successful project prior to providing you with an estimate. 

Estimates requested for bank loan purposes are subject to a $75 deposit 

which will be credited to your final bill upon Hardcore Construction LLC completing estimated work.
