Are there color choices?
Will my countertop be seamless?
Depending on overall dimensions, joints or seams are often incorporated to accommodate handling. Joints are kept to a tolerance of 1/8” and filled with a color-matching latex or grout. All joints are carefully considered and contribute to the stone-like quality of the material.
Do concrete countertops crack?
Concrete countertops can develop hairline cracks that are non-structural and result from the natural shrinkage of the material. With the correct support and care structural cracking should not occur.
Is my countertop structurally reinforced?
Using our own proprietary casting process, each piece is reinforced with fiberglass, creating slabs with extremely high strength while having only half the weight of normal concrete.
Who will install my countertops?
Installation services are provided for most of our West Coast projects, however anyone with experience installing stone countertops can install our countertops. Email us for a copy of our Installation Assistance Guidelines at [email protected]
Will concrete stain?
Our interior products have been sealed with our premium sealer for optimum resistance to staining. Exterior products have been sealed with our basic sealer which is more sensitive to staining, may develop a petina over time and is not warranted against staining. In general for all concrete surfaces, avoid contact with acidic materials and wipe any spills immediately. Refinishing concrete surfaces is possible if staining does occur. Due to weather and heat sensitivity our premium sealer cannot be used on exterior products. For more information see our Care and Maintenance.
How do I clean my concrete countertop?
We recommend a mild, non-abrasive, non-ammoniated solution for daily cleaning, such as Method All-Purpose Natural Surface cleaner or a neutral pH cleanser and warm water. Avoid using abrasive pads and bleach or acidic based cleaners as these could damage the sealer.
Can I cut on my countertop?
Cutting directly on the countertop surface may scratch or damage the sealer. We recommend using a cutting board.
Can I place hot pans on my countertop?
We recommend using a trivet because extremely hot objects may discolor the sealer.
