More and more kitchen dealers, architects and designers are going with concrete in the kitchen! With the multitude of choices in color, pattern, shapes and sizes; Verdicrete has become a beautiful and creative medium that can be used in both modern and traditional design styles. With Verdicrete, you can bring your innovative ideas to life with countertops, decorative inlaid panels, fireplace surrounds, floor tile, wall tile, furniture, and bath enclosures. The possibilities are endless! Construction Verdicrete countertops are built in our facility where conditions are controlled, special casting tables are used, and ample time is allotted for curing before the finish is applied. This assures uniformity of color and finish. Verdicrete countertops are made of cement, lightweight aggregates, and a combination of additives such as fiber reinforcement, silica fume, pozzolan, and acrylic. Various reinforcements are used including structural steel, wire mesh, fiberglass, and/or fibers. Sometimes more than one type of reinforcement is used.
We can build Verdicrete countertops from a minimum of ½” thick and upward. The finished edges may be made at any height. A 1 1/4” Verdicrete countertop weighs approximately 12lbs per square foot and is 33% lighter than stone. Most factory-made kitchen cabinets will support either concrete or granite without a problem. It’s wise to check any special layout details with your kitchen designer or general contractor. A 1 ½” Verdicrete countertop can be overhung about 24” without support. Larger overhangs can be achieved using invisible structural supports that are built into the tops. We also use steel reinforcement bars needed. Field joints are rarely needed. They may occur on oversized tops or at large angled corners. Verdicrete countertops include a durable finish that will last for the lifetime of the countertop. The finish is waterproof and stain proof and requires little maintenance. Details
