Concrete Corporation was established to fill a niche market, catering for clients looking for custom designed and bespoke manufactured concrete products.

Feature Products

Retail Counters
You've done the hard work of having converted a browser to a customer, maximize their trust with a compelling counter.
Concrete Kitchen Tops
Surfaces are especially important in the kitchen. They not only give the heart of our homes mood and emotion, they dictate how we function in and around them.
Concrete Basins & Sinks
Also called lavatories, bath sinks include a dazzling array of choices. Vessel sinks, a modern twist on the original bowl and pitcher, sit on top of a counter or cabinet. You can also install the sink beneath the countertop for a sleek look that emphasizes the countertop itself. These undermount sinks are also easy to clean since there’s no lip to catch debris.

Best of all, you don’t have to follow yesterday’s rules when it comes to design. One example: The sink, tub, and toilet no longer have to be the same or similar material and color. Instead, more designers are deliberately making the sink stand out so it acts as a focal point for the room.

Miscellaneous Concrete Products
We offer a wide portfolio of concrete engineering solutions and guarantee a smooth process of project implementation and its easy management for the client.

How much colour variation can occur?

Concrete is not a homogenous, uniform material. Just like natural wood or stone, the finished concrete’s appearance can have subtle aesthetic variations of shade, colour or pattern, depending on the materials used, the casting and curing process and the processing and finishing techniques.

Are there seams?

Often concrete benchtops can be designed without seams. Seams may be located around sinks and cooktops, or wherever required for structural reasons. Or, seams may be necessary due to the logistics of getting the slabs into the house if stairs or corners are involved. Concrete Republic will work with you to design seam placement that is both structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing. Seams are typically 3mm – 5mm wide, similar to tile grout lines. However, it is important to realize that concrete benchtops are handmade and hand processed; they are not machine cut, so tolerances for seams are more generous than with Marble or granite. Seam appearance is minimized by using clear or grey silicone.

Do’s and Dont’s

MAINTANANCE DO’s & DON’T’s
Concrete is a natural material and on rare occasions can have defects or imperfections due to the natural working process. These characteristics are not to be considered deficiencies or faults, nor can they be avoided in fabrication. Following the basic care steps will ensure that you extend the natural life of your concrete product and will provide you with many years of beautiful service.

• Frequently wipe clean with a soft clean microfiber cloth.

• Clean kitchen tops using warm water. Dry afterwards with soft clean microfiber cloth.
(Do not use harsh ammonia and abrasive kitchen cleaners)

• Blot up spills immediately (do not rub) before they penetrate the concrete surface.

• Wipe your kitchen top as soon as possible when it came in contact with cooking oil.
While stains are rare, they are caused most frequently by cooking oil.

• Do not leave acidic liquids like vinegar, lemon juice, soft drinks, wine ect on concrete for they can etch, penetrate the surface and dull the finish.

• Do not use cleaners containing bleach, ammonia, acid or alkaline (bathroom cleaners).

• Do not store bottles of cooking oil on your concrete tops.

• Do not store metal pots and pans on your granite as rust can stain the concrete.

• Do not slide appliances, utensils, pots or pans on polished granite; they may scratch the polished surface.

• Do not apply stone sealers that don’t penetrate the concrete, these harsh solvents are hard to remove eventually.

• Do not sit or stand on the work surface.

• Do not cut directly on your concrete top as it will blunt your utensils and damage the concrete top. Rather use a cutting board.
