Creating Custom Concrete Countertops in Maryland
Concrete is expressive and aesthetic on its own, but embedding vintage tiles, shells, or other unique objects within the material can help to add personality to the room in which your concrete countertop overlay is installed.
Creating a custom concrete countertop has never been easier than it is right now and if you are looking for an ultra-personalized look, you could carve a monogram or crest directly into the countertop!
With casting, shaping, and a variety of other methods available, concrete counters can possess a variety of textures and feels. Concrete will always be an extremely unique option because of all the various pigments, stains, concrete countertop colors and edge forms that are available for the consumer.
Cleaning Your Concrete Countertops
Although the heat and scratch resistance makes concrete counters seem invincible, they do require a little bit of maintenance. Spills of any kind should be rinsed as soon as possible and using abrasive cleaners shouldn’t be used to avoid scratching or scarring of the surface. We also suggest that your concrete should be waxed every 1– 3 months and resealed every 1 – 2 years.
You should use a cutting board as opposed to cutting directly on the concrete and should also not place hot pots and pans directly on it. Although it is heat resistant, damage and discoloration of the sealer is still possible when the material is exposed to high enough temperatures.
If your concrete countertops have not been sealed then it is important to know they will stain because of concrete’s porous nature.
Concrete is extremely durable, noncombustible and resilient against decay. On the flip side though, concrete countertops can possibly crack from their natural shrinkage. Trying to patch these cracks can potentially make them more obvious.
Many customers who opt for concrete surfaces in their homes embrace their hairline cracks and irregularities. These little imperfections give the concrete a natural and authentic look. Also, it should be noted that the hairline cracks are nonstructural and purely aesthetic.
Custom Concrete Countertops Cost Control
So how much do custom concrete countertops actually cost? As mentioned above, the cost of concrete countertops can be discouraging, however can be kept minimal when you coordinate with the right vendor.
The problem is that there is no answer that applies to every situation because a lot of different factors influence just how much you’ll pay for your new countertop.
Here are some tips on what you can do to make sure you save money when putting your own countertop design together.
- Consider the Material – Concrete counters, unlike a lot of other surface materials, are often mixed with salvaged materials to make them more pleasing to the eye. You can save on your custom counters by working with contractors who use recycled materials during fabrication.
- Look for Leftover Material – It isn’t uncommon for there to be an overestimate when it comes to how much of a material is needed for countertops. When that happens, you might be able to find what was leftover for a big discount.
- Look Closely at Edging – When it comes to the edging on your kitchen counters, saving money is all about keeping things simple. There are a lot of different edge styles that can be used, but you can still have great looking counters without elaborate edging that increases the pricing and makes your kitchen renovation more expensive.
- Consider the Colors You Use – As with any other kind of renovation project, the colors you use will play a large role in how much you might end up paying. If you want to save money, think about taking advantage of sale styles & colors. Doing so might not just make it easier to save money, but you’ll also have an easier time creating something unique.
These four basic steps can save you money on your countertop installation and help you cut back on concrete countertops costs. But when you’re ready to get started on renovating your kitchen, you need to work with professionals who can make sure your service goes as smoothly as possible.
