Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long does a project take?
A. Between 10-14 days, depending on size and design.
Q. Can I put hot pan on the counter surface?
A. A hot pan will not hurt the concrete but may discolor the sealer. If you need to put hot pans on your counter, metal pieces can be installed on the surface to protect the integrity of the countertop.
Q. How often do I have to reseal the countertop?
A. Never. The Cheng concrete sealer that we use is a one-time application. It doesn't wear off or need to be reapplied.
Q. What should I use to clean the countertops?
A. Mild soap and water should be all you need to clean your surfaces. Other cleaners are ok as long as they are non-abrasive.
Q. Can I cut on the countertop?
A. Yes you can, but rubbing your knives against the concrete surface may dull them.
Q. Are concrete countertops porous?
A. They are not porous once the sealer has been applied.
Q. Do concrete countertops have radon like granite?
A. No. Radon comes from the ground naturally and may be found in high concentrations in granite. Concrete is made from several natural substances that do not contain radon.
