I have been renting a home for the past two years and
have been wondering what type of countertop I have. It
looks like it was poured. The countertop and floor are
the same. This house is in Pa. I do not believe it is
terrazo as I lived in south florida for 14 years and
had terrazo floors down there.
I can't answer your question <g> sorry, but I have a countertop
question too and figure who ever reads your question will know my
answer too. Thanks for letting me piggyback..
I recently read that the best and cheapest countertop is a
"composite". Agree? What is "composite"? Is it poured as in the
Farmers of 100% Kona Coffee
& other Great Stuff
composite what? that just means it's a mixture of different materials, and
doesn't describe what the materials are.
pressed board is a composite, but they don't make countertops totally out of
that. that would be cheap, but not the best.
various products like silestone etc are plastic and some sort of minerals.
they're also a composite. that would not be cheap, and imho, not the best.
granite is a composite (different minerals smooshed together). that would
not be cheap.
Only one, given your exceedingly sketchy description...
A number of years ago there was a period of popularity for floors/counters
made by pouring a liquid and imbedding colored flakes in it. I don't recall
if it was a vinyl or polyurethane or what, been too long ago. If your
counter/floor is resilient that might be what it is.
