Polished concrete is unique and indulgent remaining economical and durable. The possibilities are endless.
Worktops are made of cement and a combination of admixtures such as fibre reinforcement, silica fume pozzolan, and acrylic polymer.
Once cast, the worktops are cured for a few days, processed and honed to reveal the concrete’s natural beauty.
GFRC worktops are almost always sealed. The type of seal, method and number of coats of sealer is unique to each concrete craftsman. Because concrete is naturally porous, concrete worktops should always be sealed to protect them from food stains, scratches and water absorption. The right sealer will not only protect the worktop surface, but also enhance its color and sheen. There are many factors to consider when choosing a worktop sealer. Here at Concrete Fair we favour high performance sealers that don’t impede upon the organic feel of the concrete.
Polished concrete can be cast into any shape and size and is completely customisable.
Crafted by hand, each piece takes a sculptural form that is unique in its finish. Specialising in hand crafted custom concrete work tops,vanity tops, wall panels, stair treads, tables and furniture, each design can be tailored to your individual requirements and preference.
When you combine timeless design with the inherent durability of concrete, your worktops will serve you well for decades,both functionally and aesthetically and are unlikely to need replacement. This not only conserves materials and eliminates waste, it saves you the expense and hassle of ripping out worn, or out-dated countertops.
