Our custom-made copper countertops, copper bar tops & table tops are available 1 1/2" and 2 1/4" thick, and they are made with 48 oz (14 gauge) copper sourced from American mills. It is high grade and certified as having minimal traces of other elements (usually silver).
Is copper hard to maintain?
Unsealed copper countertops will have a "living" finish; that is, the copper will react with air, water, acids & other environmental agents. Many people find this to be a charming property of copper. It can be protected with wax products to prevent heavier tarnishing and discoloration. Unsealed copper is a natural anti-microbial agent, far more so than stainless steel.
Copper is susceptible to scratches and dents. We use heavy duty hardened 48oz copper to minimize such wear, but care should still be taken during daily use, for example by using chopping boards & trivets. Coasters will also help in keeping discolored rings developing from drinks being set down.
Pricing starts at $90 per square foot. Pricing is determined by overall size and shape. Message us or call for a price estimate.
