How are Countertops Made?
Concrete countertops are precast off site, with a lead time of about three weeks. The first step is to make a template on the cabinets that are fastened securely in place. Next the forms are made and the
counters are poured. All countertops are a minimum thickness of one and one half inches. The countertops then go through an extensive grinding and polishing process. Finally a three step sealer is applied. The sealer, epoxy based, is impervious to stains. Normal cleaning is all that has to be done for maintenancece.
Do you make custom Fireplace surrounds and Vanities?
Fireplace surrounds can be made to fit any fireplace. With a wide variety of colors and styles, you can create a mantel hearth or surround to fit your style. Concrete thickness can vary with a minimum of two inches. Edges can be built up to look thicker with the middle being only two inches. This elegant yet industrial design element would be the perfect fit to finish off your new stove or fireplace.
Vanities also come in different styles with options of an under mount or top mount sink. Also available are monolithic vanity sinks, which are cast all in one piece. All options can be done with one bowl or two bowl vanities. In some cases the backsplash may also be cast as one piece so that there is no seam.
