When you are selecting a hard surface for your kitchen or bathroom countertops, concrete is probably not the first material to come to mind. Today's concrete surfaces come in a broad range of styles and colors that coordinate beautifully with most homes. If you are in a quandary over the countertops that will work best in your home, consider these reasons to choose precast concrete countertops.
Concrete provides a plethora of styles and colors. This material can be customized to almost any need or preference. Color can be mixed into the formula to create countertops in warm earth tones or bright hues guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.
There are few materials available today that boast the same durability as concrete. This substance is made to last and will hold up extremely well to average wear and tear. When concrete is installed and maintained properly, you can rest assured that you will be enjoying your hard surfaces for many years to come.
Because of the way concrete is formed, you can have this material molded into just about any shape you want. This means that graceful curves throughout your kitchen or bath are not a problem. Concrete countertops are commonly made for under mount or integral sinks that will make food prep and cleanup a breeze.
Concrete is a material that is resistant to heat, making concrete countertops an excellent choice for the kitchen. However, it is important to remember that the sealant used on the concrete probably won't be heat resistant, so it is important to use hot plates or specify trivets for pots and pans right off the stove.
Concrete surfaces can be much more than your basic concrete in assorted colors. We can enhance the surface with pieces of glass, tile, expose aggregate, or other materials adding even more color and personality to your piece.
Our precast method allows total environmental control and protection for the entire curing process. You do not need to see or experience the mess and installation is complete in less than a day. Often with cast in place pieces you cannot use the surface right away because it takes up to 4 weeks before curing is complete.
