love the color of the concrete and the finish
these concrete counters are. What is the finishing process that is used to avoid sharp corners and an overall glossy finish? I noticed someone mentioned another thread about it, could you give me the link? http://www.northwarrenstampcrete.com
local concrete contractor and he mentioned wiping the epoxy with acetone, sanding lightly with an orbital sander and then recoating with wax. He has limited experience with countertops, but has extensive experience with flooring and outdoor jobs. Does this sound like a reasonable approach? You mentioned

kitchen counter is made of? it looks great!
love the counter top. what is it mad of and the color?
Yes, it's poured in place concrete, natural color with a few rocks from the foundation excavation embedded in the concrete at specific locations.
artisan concrete shop is well worth the price. It is much more difficult to price concrete strictly by a square foot price. Granite comes as a slab and is cut up to fit the needed shape. For concrete, forms must be produced and a precise recipe is followed to create the concrete mix. Once out of the forms
cheaper than concrete. High quality granite will be more expensive than concrete. Nothing compares to the possibilities offered by concrete. Of course, I'm biased. I love concrete! If your budget is tight and you need to save money then get tile. Otherwise, get what really makes you happy! Hope that

tint the concrete gray-green to better coordinate with their other finishes. Set atop the new island and surrounding counters, the concrete has a mottled industrial finish that feels much more contemporary than the granite that preceded it. “It urbanizes the suburbs, basically,” says Becky.

What are some of the pros and cons to having concrete counters?
kitchen counters and I love love to cook. I would love concrete countertops, but know tthat is not realistic-what do you recommmend?? Thanks, Judy
The shallow bar inside the kitchen is a great use of space. Can you share the depth of the counter ledge?
correct. Concrete will hold up well as long as your installer educates you on the products that he is using & what you need to do to maintain the tops. A good sealer is key!
madisonct, Concrete can hold up great. Two main things will contribute to its durability. 1. Concrete mix design 2. Sealer
modern concrete mixes are approaching the density of granite. These are technical mixes way beyond the DIYers or even tradesman that have worked with concrete here and there. Sealer technology is great now and it continues to advance. From lower grade to higher grade concrete sealed properly you could

How do you clean cement counters
Not all concrete is created equal. Make sure you connect with a fabricator that is knowledgeable and experienced. The concrete in a foundation will be around 3500 psi. A quality shop these days should be over 10K psi and closer to 15K psi. In addition to being stronger, denser concrete is also more resistant
to your counters :-) New silica based penetrating sealers also seem to be impervious to heat. Costs will vary depending on region and how close to major cities you are. If you are shopping at a box store concrete will be more. If you are looking at high end natural or man made surfaces concrete will
mold. Concrete is very durable. The issue with hot pans in the past has been twofold. One is that old school concrete contains various aggregates (stone and sand). If a very hot pot is set down and a stone below the surface heats up and expands it can pop loose and leave a chip. It would take a lot
