WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF POLISHED CONCRETE?
Choosing concrete worktops opens up an endless list of possibilities for you to create a totally bespoke piece for your home. Our range of products can be tailored to a variety of finishes and colours. Concrete also allows us to produce products to any shape or design, meaning you can tailor your kitchen or bathroom to your own taste. See our Products page for options or get in touch with us to discuss your ideas.
The very nature of concrete, coupled with proper maintenance, means that it is a strong, long-lasting product. For more information on maintenance of concrete, check out our Living with Concrete page.
DOES CONCRETE REQUIRE A LOT OF MAINTENANCE?
All our concrete goods will arrive at your doorstep (delivered or installed) fully sealed using our food safe water-based sealer. We also provide a maintenance bundle to help protect and preserve your concrete, with instructions on how and when to best apply a protective wax layer to your goods. Our sealer tests confirm our concrete can withstand stains including red wine for 24 hours but we always advise to clear any liquids from the surface immediately, especially acidic liquids and foods. You cannot cut foods on concrete and a chopping board is always required to prevent scratching and damaging the surface of the concrete and sealer. Check out our Living with Concrete Page for more information.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST SIZE WORKTOP YOU MAKE?
Anything is possible, but at a price. The largest size we cast in normal production is approximately 3 metres. When we cast anything greater in length, costs increase due to the specialist equipment needed to cast, transport and install. If you require a worktop over this length, we are always happy to discuss this and provide a quote. We recommend having joints or seams instead and we can explore your preferred joint position.
Wherever possible, we make every effort to make our products as light and manageable as possible, which also make for a more efficient cast without compromises strength.
DO YOU JUST MAKE WORKTOPS?
At Cast & Polish we love new ideas and projects brought forward by clients. Popular products include kitchen worktops, vanity tops, shelves, dining tables, coffee tables, tiles, side panels and splashbacks. We also specialise in sinks: trough sinks, bathroom sinks and undermount kitchen sinks. The possibilities are endless and we are always happy to discuss options with you.
WHERE CAN I SEE SOME OF YOUR POLISHED CONCRETE?
After an initial chat we are happy to send out samples, bespoke to you and your preferences, to help you to make your decision. Alternatively, we are happy to arrange an appointment at a time that suits you to visit our showroom and come and see the selection of our products in person.
