Concrete Countertop Overlay
 
Our laminate countertops are worn and chipped and peeling in places. I saw this video:

and would like to do this. Im trying to figure out what he is using. The website says its a polymer concrete material. Is that the same as polymer reinforced concrete repair mix?

if a parallel example can be that stacking pieces of wood properly you can build a house, then the c-top video is close :whistling2: that was a new c-top & you need only overlay your existing c-top,,, the BEST thing you can do to increase satisfactory results is forget buying anything but 6mil plastic, chip brushes, the roller frame from an apron/vest store,,, polymers are not equal - visit concretenetwork.com OR reach out to any elitecrete distributor :thumbsup: you can diy but it takes time, patience, education, & talent.

do you need classes or is it like skimstone???? I would like to learn more about it because I have a client who is interested in having me do her countertop, but I do not have the money to go to more classes.

Thanks

know of skimstone because of trade mag ads & bailing out 2 skimstone ' artisans ',,, IF you have a client such as this, find a pro - IF you don't have the $ to invest in yourself, sub it out,,, IF you're already in the trade, talk to a distributor - he may cut a deal,,, once you use eC, you won't go back :thumbsup:
