Bronze Construction Details

bronze construction

What does it look like?

  • Bronze is a rustic, durable and reactive metal.
  • Golden in color, matte bronze will develop a dark brown patina.
  • Professionally patinated bronze will appear darker and more uniform than bronze given the opportunity to develop its patina naturally.

What can I expect?

  • Over time, your countertop will develop a unique “pattern of use.” Areas of frequent use and cleaning will appear lighter and smoother than areas that are used less frequently, which will look darker.
  • Bronze countertops are not and are not meant to represent a monolithic surface. An artisanal metal, bronze countertops may show slight scratches, pinholes, and soldering marks that add to its country charm.
  • It is these imperfections and variations that give bronze countertops their charm; no two bronze countertops will look exactly alike.
  • Hammered bronze will have a wavy, undulated surface and will not be machine flat.
  • Depending on the size and shape of your countertop, a non-welded butt seam may be required.
  • Very large tops may require a mechanical, silicone-sealed field joint. No on-site welding is necessary.

  • Made with 14-gauge sheets (approximately 1/16" thick).
  • Edges are available in any thickness but 1 1/2" is a standard.
  • The proper filler material for welding is bronze (not silver or lead alloy solder).
  • Sub structure is solid waterproof MDF. It is equal in height to the front edge thickness.
  • Any length or layout may be produced. Non-welded field joints may be required.
  • For very large tops a mechanical, interlock, silicone sealed field joint is provided. No welding is done on site.
