Although very trendy and unique, concrete countertops can be really messy and unpredictable. Luxury Granite carries a variety of concrete and cement look-alike products that can help you achieve that rustic modern style, without the pain that real concrete provides!
Main benefits of using Quartz instead of cement are:
1. Cement countertops are porous and must be sealed in order to become stain-resistant (and even then, they are definitely not stain-PROOF.) Quartz is non-porous, and therefore does not need to be sealed, but it's also only stain-resistant so wiping up colourful liquids as soon as you can is best.
2. Cement is heat resistant in it's natural state, but NOT when sealed (which you would want to do to ensure stain-resistance. Quartz is also not heat resistant, so they're the same in this regard.
3. The cost for a concrete countertop can range from $90 to $130 per square foot, depending on a number of factors. So why go through the mess and uncertainty when you can have high quality countertops professionally fabricated and installed for the same price (or less!)?
4. Luxury Granite will provide an excellent, hassle-free install, and even help you pick out the perfect stone for you and your family.
If you're looking for a product to stay in your family for years to come, looking as good as the day you put in into your home, Quartz is your better choice. To learn more about cement countertops I have found this Houzz discussion extremely helpful:
