Concrete has been a mainstay of civilization since the height of the Roman Empire. Made of the stuff that built the earth, concrete is one of the greenest building materials. It provides strength and beauty in buildings and bridges. Concrete is as strong as solid rock, yet can be shaped in a multitude of designs. Concrete is recyclable, yet can last thousands of years.
About Concrete Countertops
A versatile medium, concrete begins as a loose, wet mud, which is shaped or stamped into a virtually limitless number of shapes. Concrete can be stained or colored. It can resemble rough rock, or can be ground and polished into a glass-like smoothness. Concrete has recently seen a renaissance in how it’s used. Mainly seen outside and beneath buildings and other structures, fixtures of concrete now reside inside the home—as countertops, vessel sinks, wall panels, tables, benches and many other creative applications.
