poured concrete counter-top

We designed this kitchen with our client who wanted a bold and modern kitchen. It included custom stained cherry cabinets, poured cement counter-tops and fossilized granite back-splash.

PRO VC Studio Inc. Hello Heidi, I noticed that you posted your sealer issue on another thread as well. I'm sorry to hear you are having issues with your sealer. Mixing up some concrete is easy, but making high performance concrete is quite involved. Choosing the right sealer is a whole subject on its own. It has been a matter of great debate in our industry for years. Personally I have never been a fan of epoxy coatings for counters. They do scratch and it looks like a thick sheet of clear plastic, because that's basically what it is. Often an epoxy sealer will be top coated with a urethane or at least a wax as a sacrificial layer. You can strip the epoxy but it is a messy nasty job. You can also sand out the scratches then use a polyurethane sealer as the sacrificial top coat. A water based urethane floor wax could also be used. Even carnauba wax would be better than nothing. If you sand then be careful not to sit in one spot and dig a hole. Cover the entire top evenly so that the wear/removal is even. I would suggest using a random orbital for this type of sanding, not just a variable speed grinder or polisher. If you will recoat the epoxy stop at 200 grit. If you will only wax it then continue with finer grits until you achieve the look you want. Regards, Vincent Cathcart VC Studio Inc. vince@vcstudioinc.com December 30, 2013 at 12:26pm Like
