Hey everyone, the wife and I want to upgrade our countertops... she is thinking of concrete. Just wanted to 1.get any feedback or recommendations of surfaces and what is best for the price and 2. see if there are any bucknutters that are in the business or have contacts for some one that is trustworthy and affordable
A quartz product is the best and very durable. Cambria, Silestone are very good.
Downside to concrete. Expensive and you never know what your going to get. You can go select the granite slab that you want cut for your kitchen. Granite is more affordable.
Man made tops like corion and quartz are typically more expensive and seem very consistant. More times than not they are trying to simulate a natural look. Quartz is more a "green" building material if that is important to you....
If you are located in columbus, I can give you a couple names....Pm me if you want granite. I have multiple fabricators that are affordable and trustworthy.
Ive had customers use Cambria and Silestone as well as honstone (spelling)...good material generally speaking you will pay between 65 to 85 per ft. Cambria only has like two installers in cbus. I know Konkus is one...
Most granites you can get for between 50-65 per ft....
we recently did ours in high end tile. Was able to create a couple different diamond patterns that blend well up the splashboard and also surface our breakfast bar and the wall behind the oven. You can really get creative with tile..I think it's a little less expensive..and even the grout comes in colors.
funny thing..my guy's name is Mark..and he could be an identical twin to Tickle on Moonshiners, dude can lay some tile.

My company does a product called Semco. We own the rights to it in Ohio. This stuff is everywhere in Vegas. Resembles concrete but is above and beyond in color, texture, and uniqueness.
Know why "hilarious" is such a funny word? Because it's hilarious.

Looked at concrete, Cambrian and granite; granite is most expensive but not terribly so. However, granite has a wow factor that really makes a kitchen a statement. Pick out your granite in advance and you can get exactly what you want.
I do concrete counter tops I have them n my home u can pm me and I will give u my number and we can talk pros and cons of them.....
Silestone would be my recommendation. I sold real estate for 3 years( I have been out for 2) but it was very popular it pretty much replaced Granite because of durability.
quartz is gaining popularity, and while I like concrete - it is porous and can stain (seal that shit up)
granite always leads the way
