3 Reasons to Consider Concrete Countertops From L. Suzio York Hill Companies, Meriden, Connecticut

If you're remodeling your kitchen and you're looking to install something other than granite or quartz countertops, consider concrete. Using concrete doesn't mean your countertop is going to look like a sidewalk. In fact, it will look like a work of art; the focal point of what just might become your favorite room in the house. The L. Suzio York Hill Companies of Meriden, CT, has been in business for over 100 years, supplying concrete to the south central Connecticut region since the 1930's. The concrete supplier offers three reasons why homeowners should consider concrete countertops over granite or quartz:

  1. Custom Made: Unlike granite or quartz countertops, which are often premade in the factory, concrete must be poured on site. This means that you can personalize the color, finish, shape, and other features that you simply can’t do with a factory-made countertop. You can even add other details like a built-in drainboard or a decorative edge that will bring more character to your kitchen.concrete
  2. Durable: Concrete can eventually crack, but this is because of shrinkage over time, not due to every day usage. However, minor cracks won’t affect the integrity of the counter—in fact, they’ll likely just increase the unique appearance of your kitchen. If you are concerned about larger cracks happening down the road, you can strengthen the concrete with wire mesh or other reinforcement methods.
  3. Economical: Not only are concrete counters comparable in price to quartz or granite, you can also have them made with recycled materials. And because concrete countertops are so durable, you can be sure that you and your family will be able to enjoy your concrete countertops for years to come.
