The following are important points about our hand-made concrete Countertops, Fire and Water Features, and Summer Kitchens.
Products made by ConcreteCommander.com (CCC) are hand-made and hand-finished. Each piece is unique. Variations in texture, dimension, color and aggregate distribution and exposure within a final product may occur and are considered an inherent property of our hand-made products.
Natural fissures that may occur in the finished product are a natural characteristic of concrete. Natural fissures do not affect the structural integrity of the concrete.
Samples of any material may not precisely represent material you will receive. Shades of color, for example, may vary per shipment due to the inherent nature of the materials used. For example, the humidity on the day the concrete is poured can subtly affect the color of the cured concrete.
“Variegated” colors are highly variable in pattern. The pattern may be different from samples in density, size and distribution of patterning. The pattern may vary from slab to slab. Variegation is random.
Embedded objects such as glass chips, metal shavings or stones are randomly distributed and tend to shift during the casting process. Every effort is made to use the size and density of objects shown in a sample, but size and density will vary throughout the finished slabs. Embedded metal shavings are composed of stainless steel, steel, and other metals, and the composition of the shavings is not under ConcreteCommander.com’s control, as the shavings are recycled from a machine shop. Some rust may occur on some shavings and should be considered inherent to the look of the product.
Seaming may be required for layouts designed to exceed maximum casting lengths. Seams are kept to a tolerance not to exceed 1/4" difference from the templates. Seams are filled with a color-coordinating acrylic caulk after slabs are placed. Typical seams are on the order of 1/16” to 1/8” wide. Typical slab size maximum is 8’ x 25”. We will provide you with a seam design after templating; please let us know if you require a seam design earlier.
Under-mount sinks will be mounted with a slight overhang of the countertop over the flange of the sink, so that the flange is not visible, unless otherwise specified in the Description of Job.
All sizes are nominal and slight variations in thickness and other dimensions are to be expected. Maximum dimensional variations are +0”, - 1/4" at maximum slab length; typical variations are usually half of the maximum or less.
