There are websites where you can enter the information on a form, and in a short time (usually a few hours to a few days), you will receive cost estimates for having granite countertops installed. These quotes should include information about three things: the purchase, transportation and installation of the granite countertops. If all three are not listed, then you will have to check each source to get a total price. Once you have done all of the comparison shopping, you will be able to decide the best installer for your new kitchen countertops.

Remember to keep in mind that the style should go along with the current decorating style you have in your kitchen. If you have a country kitchen, you certainly don’t want to end up with countertops that are ultra-modern, or vice versa.

It is durable enough to last for decades to come, strong enough to be used in structural applications, and malleable (before cured) to be molded to almost any form or shape. It can be used in flooring, wall, and ceiling applications, or it can be employed to construct statues and furniture. It can be made to look industrial and cold as well as traditional and warm. With so many applications, it is nearly safe to say that concrete can be used to make almost anything, and countertops are no exception.

Because traditional Portland cement is grey in color, it can have an effect on the overall look of the concrete countertop. If you are looking for a top that can be easily stained dark colors, or if you are wanting to leave the concrete countertops the natural, grey color, then regular Portland is the right choice for the project. However, if your concrete countertop is going to be white or light colors, or you need it to be easily dyed or stained, you may be better suited to choose a white Portland cement. It has the same binding properties as traditional Portland, only it is white in color when cured. White Portland is the only way to get a truly white concrete countertop.
