Great Informational Outlet for Concrete Countertops

Posted on 19 August 2012 by cradmin

We ran across a great resource for those thinking of installing concrete countertops, or just want to know more about the options, at ConcreteNetwork.com . They have a series of highly informative articles about concrete countertops. This informational website has something for everyone interested in concrete counters, whether you are a fabricator, designer or customer. The articles cover details ranging from how concrete countertops are made and installed  to what the finished product looks like and how to clean them.

As the world in general becomes more eco-friendly, the world of concrete countertops is no exception. There is a series of articles on how concrete countertops can be made “green.”  These articles can help ensure that concrete countertops encourage sustainability and are manufactured in an eco-friendly manner.

When considering all countertops’ needs, there many options available. Reviewing all of these options might be a little overwhelming, but the site has fashioned a very handy comparison chart showing different pros and cons of six common types of countertops. They compare staining, grout lines, sealing, appearance over age and other topics. There is also a comparison of the average price per square foot, making getting down to the “bottom line” easy to accomplish.

Are you or your client interested in a higher degree of personalization? Then check out the  section that has some wonderful information on the wide variety of designs that can be woven into  concrete countertops. While the word concrete may conjure up images of Cold War era Poland, this material is quite versatile and can be made to look incredible. One option is to embed glass in a concrete countertop. In this option, individuals have the ability to personalize the countertop to their own decorating tastes to a very high degree. While the process takes time (28 days before it is dry from the sealing process according to the article), the time spent may be more than worth the effort and wait if it is something that is really desired. Another article details how to personalize a countertop with item such as shotgun shells, spoons or even car gauges. A creative mind can surely find other unique methods of personalizing a countertop, and use these ideas as a springboard.

Also included are three articles on how these countertops are manufactured. Here, a person can learn the difference between cast on site or in the shop , size limitations/seams in countertops, and how thick and heavy a concrete countertop will be.

The countertop selection process can be made easier by these informative and descriptive articles. No matter which countertop is selected to beautify a new home (or add spice to an old one), this site is worth checking out as a resource in making a smart decision, or just getting informed.
