Hello - can you tell us your experience with the concrete counter top? is it porous or hard to clean? have you spilt any wine or acidic substances on it yet? I LOVE the color and feel but have read some bad reviews on concrete. Your feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I have a concrete countertop in my kitchen and I absolutely love it! I had mine made by Stone Passion Northeast. I am planning on putting a concrete countertop on my gameroom bar along with the powder room vanity and fireplace hearth. The designs and colors are endless. It is very durable. They use a sealer that I was told will outlast me being in the house.

OK, thank you so much. One more question if you don't mind: how was the cost compared to granite? Comparable? Thanks again, LOVE the look and am so happy to hear your feedback...

The cost is slighly lower. I chose an orange peel sealer that does not show finger or hand prints like granite does. Even though they are both porous, once the concrete is sealed, you won't have to worry about maintanence sealing. I attached a photo of my counter top with matching back splashes along with an integral sink that I love, love, love.

Thank you so much for the info. We leave by Cleveland, so I just emailed them to see if they do work in Ohio. Beautiful pictures, thanks for posting them.

It will be 2 years now and they look the same as the day they were installed.
