More facts about copper countertops
Metal countertops are not exclusively
stainless steel. Copper is increasingly finding a place in the kitchen.
While itís not mainstream, copper does have its appeal for those who
enjoy having something unusual.
Copper is a softer metal than
stainless steel. In countertops, look for copper that is at least .060
thick. Copper of .080 provides added strength and performance.
copper countertop can be more volatile and susceptible to changes than
stainless steel. Some homeowners consider this part of the developing
patina as it moves from shiny copper to a charcoal brown. Scratches on
copper are typically not addressed as they are part of the aging
process and add to the natural patina. Today, we have several methods to "seal" the patina in much the way stone countertops are treated.
Copper is an excellent
antibacterial material and cleanup is simple with soap and water.
Maintenance involves occasionally waxing the counters with beeswax or
butcher's wax to preserve the finish and reduce fingerprints.
countertops are custom quoted due to the variables of copper
fabricating, but general estimates are around $150 per square foot,
installed. A sheet of copper is generally three-feet by eight-feet,
which can require a lot of shop welds, grinding, and polishing during
fabrication. Copper tends to warp more than stainless, too, so
deflection in larger countertops is always a consideration. Like
stainless steel, copper is attached to plywood subtrates and then fastened
to the cabinet.
