- What are the benefits of concrete countertops?
In addition to their stylistic charms, concrete countertops offer durability, scratch and chip resistance, heat resistance, customizability, unlimited color options, and a relatively low maintenance option.
- How long will concrete countertops last?
Concrete is a rock solid material, and extremely durable, which means concrete countertops will last you a lifetime, if properly sealed and maintained.
- What is the average cost of installing concrete countertops?
The cost of installing concrete countertops ranges from $65 to $135 per square foot, while installation rates vary between $30 and $90 per hour.
- Do concrete countertops scratch easily?
Though concrete isn’t scratch-proof per se, it does offer pretty great scratch resistance, particularly when stacked next to other materials such as laminate.
- How thick should concrete countertops be?
The standard concrete countertop slab thickness is 1.5 to 2 inches, which is similar to countertops made of marble or granite. That said, contractors can create the illusion of a thicker countertop when desired by casting a drop-front edge.
- Can you put hot pans on concrete countertops?
Although concrete countertops do offer heat resistance, it’s still not a great idea to place hot pans directly on them. The heat can potentially damage or discolor the sealer.
- How can I change the color of my concrete countertop?
You can evenly apply a coat of new concrete stain to your countertops using a paint brush, applying additional coats until the desired shade of color is achieved. Refer to the stain product’s packaging for application instructions.
- Are concrete countertops hard to clean?
Concrete countertops beautifully marry functionality and style, and they are inherently durable, low maintenance, and easy to clean.
- Will concrete countertops crack?
Not always, but concrete countertops can develop hairline cracks. The cracks tend to be non-structural and result from the natural shrinkage of the concrete. However, some countertop cracks can be prevented through proper sealing and maintenance.
- How do I keep my concrete countertops from cracking?
The best way to reduce the likelihood of cracks is to properly reinforce the countertop itself before the concrete is poured. Reinforcing the concrete with rebar, welded wire, or something similar is highly recommended to preserve the integrity of the concrete over time.
- What type of concrete is used for concrete countertops?
QUIKRETE® Countertop Mix is a specially formulated flowable high-strength concrete mix used for precast and cast-in-place concrete countertop applications.
