Concrete and Concrete Counter Tops that are Pleasing to the Eye










Recent findings on discoveries of human settlements that existed long ago tell that human beings made use of concrete for decorative purposes and also in construction as well. The twenty first century continues to see the use of decorative concrete in floor works and in the making of counter tops. Among the obvious reason as to why concrete has been largely been accepted in concrete counter tops is the versatility of the material making its application easy and applicable in a variety of ways. Those in the construction industry will agree that many people who are constructing their homes or those that are making some renovations wish to give their homes some uniqueness, the counter tops is a utility that can be used to effect this kind of uniqueness. Concrete makes one play around with color, settle for a texture that you want, mold your counter top into a shape that you want. Many contractors will want to show their customers that they have skill and what better way is there than to do a custom job on a counter top , that way the concrete counter top can fit into the overall theme of the house. The labor needed to deliver a counter top is no joke, for a counter top with a lot of detail, it might take up to two weeks to finish. The design, form work and all activities involved to the application of a coat sealer is the amount of labor needed to deliver a concrete counter top. For clients who might be having laminate counter tops already and want concrete counter tops, it's not necessary to pull down that which is in place but rather a contractor can just prepare the surface and add a polymer with a cement base which will give a concrete counter top in the end, one can choose the texture and even shape they want as well, on top of that its less expensive and easier to construct.

Decorative concrete features patterns, unique textures, having overlays concrete coating and the use of acid stains just to mention but a few. To achieve colors with the use of acid stains, the acid reacts with minerals in the concrete. Concrete mixtures tend to have air spaces embedded in and to avoid having a weak structure it's wise to employ the use of a vibrator so as to ensure any voids are well filled. Before surfaces of countertops dry off, they can have some decorators embedded and these could be coins, sea shells or colored brass, having a combination of decorators also brings a unique touch.  Visit  http://artofconcreteak.net/ for more
