David Crane, Owner
Concrete Countertops by Crane
Covington, Louisiana

All of David's countertops are Buddy Rhodes Mix and are all cast in place. His integrated sink counters and vessels are all precast in the shop. David uses powdered stucco color to achieve different shades & antique finishes, and says he is constantly experimenting with new materials, shades and finishes.

 

 



David always mixes with ice water and adds Counter-Flo to each batch. These counters are colored with LaHabra powder called "Alamo".

As an interesting final touch,
David always makes the client a concrete fruit bowl
with what's left in the wheel barrow and his clients love them!.
We, at DCI, can certainly see why!
