Concrete Counter tops:

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • The Color and Design possibilities are endless
  • Concrete is usually made locally, so it has a low carbon footprint
  • When done yourself can cost as little as $8 a square foot
  • Lasts for generations

Cons:

  • Concrete is porous so should be sealed and waxed for protection and sheen
  • Sealant can be damaged by heat and scratches
  • Can get hairline cracks if not cured properly
  • Can be expensive on par with marble or granite if using a contractor
