The making of concrete countertops require a high level of skill, labor, and craftmanship. Every job is different, but you can expect to pay $85-$100 sq/ft.
We use a topical sealer which creates a barrier which is highly stain resistant.
Our concrete and sealer are very heat resistant, even up to 500 degrees!
We use a scratch resistant sealer, which holds up to heavy kitchen abuse, however it is not 100% scratch proof. We suggest cutting on a cutting board. Cutting on concrete, like all other countertop stones, will dull your knives.
No, everything is precast in our shop. This lets us have total control of the environment to optimize the best concrete you can make. It is then delivered and installed into your home.
There isn't much to it. Use any product you would usually clean a countertop with.
"I found the void I was looking for in concrete. I have an understanding of the chemistry of concrete, and how to manipulate it, and perfect it. I have learned that concrete has no bounds - it can be persuaded but not controlled, almost as if it is alive. The pieces that can be created are limited only by the artisan’s imagination and passion. "
