Copper Countertop Details:

  • We can fabricate a custom integral sink (rectangular, square, or round) and weld it in as a seamless part of any top.
  • We can under-mount or cut-in any sink that you provide.
  • Holes for faucets and accessories such as hot water inserts and soap dispensers are available options.
  • Drain Pans are tapered 3/8" so that water will flow into the sink.

What does it look like?

  • Copper is a classic, rustic material best known for its durability and anti-bacterial properties.
  • Reddish-brown in appearance, matte copper will develop a patina similar to brick in color. Professionally patinated copper will be darker and will appear more uniform in color than copper given the opportunity to develop its patina naturally.
  • Both matte and patinated copper has a "living finish" and will continue to evolve through the lifetime of the countertop.

What can I expect?

  • An artisanal metal, copper countertops may show slight scratches, pinholes, and soldering marks that add to its country charm.
  • Hammered copper 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.
