Why You Should Leave Concrete Countertop Installation To The Pros Instead of DIY

If you are looking to add concrete countertops or bar tops to your home or business, congratulations! Concrete countertops are an excellent choice when it comes to both style and durability, and you’ll surely find them to be a great investment. Concrete countertops are stronger and more design versatile than granite or other common countertop materials. But, this is one project we strongly recommend you leave to the pros instead of taking a DIY approach. Read on to learn about the benefits of hiring a professional for your concrete countertop installation and avoiding causing havoc in your home or business.

Cost Assessment & Options

When it comes to installing concrete countertops in your home or concrete bar tops in a business, figuring out the cost can be one of the trickiest parts. That is, if you tackle the project on your own. However, if you hire a custom concrete services company, you can rest assured that early cost and time projections are as accurate as can be. At CustomCreteWerks, we provide project estimates upfront and discuss what you can expect in terms of turnaround time and the scale of disruptions to your kitchen or business. This information can help you to better budget and plan for the process.

Leaving the job to a pro also ensures that the person installing your countertops knows what they are doing! Tackling this project on your own requires a tremendous amount of precision and know-how about concrete in order to avoid costly mishaps when it comes to things like pouring, placing, and curing the concrete.

Additionally, we offer concrete in a wide array of colors and visual texture options. Access to this inventory will ensure you are able to choose exactly the right look to match your home or business’s style. Our concrete comes in four different categories, from monotone to a beautiful “wash” appearance that provides a stunning visual variation. You can contribute to a rustic setting with a burnt red/orange or lean into the industrial look with a traditional polished concrete color.

Proprietary Process

While you may be able to acquire a piece of concrete for your countertop if you choose to install it on your own, you may not have access to superior protectants or proprietary processes like those offered by CustomCreteWerks.

In fact, we use our two proprietary processes for all our unique concrete products: Concrete N-Hansed™ and N-Virocrete™. Concrete on its own is prone to scratching and staining, so it is essential that your countertops are properly treated from the beginning. Together, our treatment processes make for distinctive, stain-proof, and eco-friendly concrete countertops. Additionally, these processes make the countertops heat resistant and easy to clean. And, we include a 5-year warranty!

While other concrete suppliers may use coatings and protectants, they are not always reliable or environmentally friendly. Our processes, on the other hand, have led to significant improvements from our previous concrete countertop irrerations; our concrete countertops now boast 45% less concrete and 20% more recycled materials as well as requiring 52.3% less water to create and being 60.7% lighter weight.

Again, because these processes are proprietary, you will not find them with concrete pieces acquired elsewhere. For a concrete countertop that will last for years to come, it pays to invest in the professionals who are at the top of their game.
