OUR PROVEN 3-STEP DESIGN PROCESS

TEMPLATE • FORM • FINISH

The process to create a Solid Rock Concrete Design for your home or business begins with an in-depth analysis of both your design goals and your functional needs. From there, we build a template that illustrates the major features of your design. Then, we build the intricate mold of your design. Finally, the finishing process includes letting the concrete cure and then adding customized grinding and polishing specific to your design.

1TEMPLATE

Like granite fabricators, this is very important to get a proper and accurate template. The template is used to identify the area the countertop will be and any design element that will be used in the finished product. The template is then used to create the mold which will be later filled with concrete.

2FORM

The form becomes the challenge because it is an upside down, reversed form application. Knock-outs for sinks and faucets, cutting board rails, drain troughs, drain rails, aggregates, inlays and any other design element that will be in the countertop must be placed in the form. Rebar and wire mesh is needed for strength and support.

3FINISH

Finishing the project involves processing the surface to begin exposing the aggregate allowing the true beauty of concrete to appear. This is achieved by wet polishing using a planetary polisher. After the desired effect is achieved, a penetrating sealer is applied, topped off with a wax.

It is 100% customizable. It is comfortable in blending and complementing any design style.
Absolutely! Added maintenance is required in a commercial setting. However, with its ability to be customized, concrete can be utilized and achieve greater design statements than other hard surfaces.
They are safe, however, if the countertops are fully exposed to the elements, mostly the sun, it will tend to fade. The sealer must be applied seasonally for added protection. Concrete is a nice surface for exterior applications.

Concrete will dull the finest cutlery and will eventually damage your protecting sealer. We recommend using a cutting board.

The concrete itself can take the heat, but the aggregate that is used in the mix may not be able to withstand the heat and may pop – causing a void. Also, the heat may harm the sealer, so a hot pad or trivet is recommended.

Typically, the base cabinets can handle the weight. The weight of the top is evenly dispersed over the cabinets. If there is any question, a ledger can be attached along the back of the base cabinets to provide extra support.
