Q1:Do you pour on location?
A1:Typically no. Our products are pre-cast in our factory, carefully packed and delivered to the installation site.


Q.2 Do I have a choice of finishes?
A.2  Yes, you can choose different textures and finishes. There are various techniques including hand-trowelling, pressing and grinding that create unique results. Choice of colour and aggregate additives as well as optional in-lays further customize your project.


Q.3 How do you maintain the finish?
A.3 Regular maintenance will ensure the long life of the concrete. Waxing with beeswax every couple of months will provide a level of protection and add patina to the surface.


Q.4 How do you clean it?
A.4  Use plain soap and water or any natural non-abrasive cleanser.


Q.5 Does concrete ever chip or crack?
A.5  Yes, Corners and edges can chip if struck by a hard object. Our countertop edges are finished to minimize chipping. Hairline cracks can also develop. These are not structural failures. They are inherent to the property of the material and can be patched or left visible to enhance the natural look of the countertop, if desired.


Q.6 Does the concrete stain or is it waterproof?
A.6 Our non-toxic penetrating sealer and wax will help to resist stains, but are not acid proof. It is best to clean up spills as soon as possible, especially oils and acidic liquids. Acids can etch the surface -- red wine, lemon juice, and vinegar especially. However, like aged butcher block or marble, a patina on a cast concrete product can actually enhance the character of the surface.


Q.7 Can you put hot pans on the counter?
A.7 Pots and pans will not scratch the surface however it is best to use hot pads or a trivet to avoid scorching the sealer. Concrete is heat resistant but can be subject to thermal shock if a red hot object is placed directly upon it. Like granite, the exposed area may flake or chip away if too much heat is applied.


Q.8 Can you cut directly on the counter?
A.8 We recommend a cutting board. Knife marks can mar the sealed surface and set up areas for stains to form. Additionally the concrete will severely dull the knife's cutting edge. Scratches in the sealer could occur if heavy, rough or sharp objects are dragged across the countertop surface. Should a scratch occur, it can be minimized using the Touch-Up Kit.
