3 Reasons Concrete Overlay Has Become a Favorite Solution for Countertop Projects , Windham, Connecticut

At one time, concrete was viewed as nothing more than a practical and unattractive building material. Now, it plays a large role in many home design projects. One household feature that has seen a significant increase in concrete use is the countertop, whether homeowners are installing a slab or applying an overlay. However, according to the professionals at Builder’s Concrete East, there are specific advantages to concrete countertop overlays that shouldn’t be overlooked. As the leading ready-mix concrete supplier in and around Windham, Tolland, & Hartford  County, the company has firsthand experience with the growing number of requests for overlay application.

Below, they explain some of the biggest reasons overlays have become such a popular countertop solution:

  • Eco-Friendly & Easy Installation: Installing new countertops can take several days, and sometimes weeks, to fully complete. In contrast, overlays adhere to an existing surface within two to three days. The simplified process makes it much more environmentally friendly than ripping out worn countertops and using more resources. Concrete overlays allow homeowners to update their surfaces without going through the mess and inconvenience of a remodel.

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Overlays can be applied to virtually any type of countertop material, including Formica, laminate, wood, granite, tile, marble, and solid surfaces. It will produce a polished appearance and is available in a wide variety of decorative choices. Colored concrete can be mixed in to achieve a unique effect that creates visually stunning and one-of-a-kind countertops.
  • Durability: Concrete overlays are highly durable and made to withstand heavy day-to-day use. They are great for resisting heat and bacteria that other materials may have a difficult time holding up against. They require little maintenance, and if they do become damaged at any point, it’s easy and inexpensive to restore them back to their original condition.

Concrete overlays provide an affordable and effective way to rejuvenate old countertops or protect the investment of new ones. Contact Builder’s Concrete East at (860) 456-1787 for sales or dispatch 860-456-4787 or visit them online to learn more about the products and services they offer.
