We love concrete countertops for their durability and "green" cred. But finding a skilled local fabricator isn't always easy. Shipping, on the other hand, is risky and expensive. NuCrete CounterTiles solve both of those problems. Available in four colors—cream, porcelain, graphite, and earth—the 2-foot-square, 1-inch-thick tiles are specially formulated to resist staining and can be easily cut on-site with a tile or masonry saw.
