Concrete is like no other material in the world. It's uniqueness and genuine authenticity are a big reason why so many people are drawn to it.
What makes concrete so real is the fact that it's not always perfect. Hard Topix prides itself on completing thousands of projects around the United States over the last 15 years but not amount of experience or expertise can prevent the beautiful imperfectness of the material. We have very strict, controlled processes that we go through in crafting our concrete pieces but concrete will still exhibit random variations in color, texture and subtle voids which give it it's character. There are many reasons for this and one is due to the inherent nature of how the concrete is made.
When concrete is curing, many reactions are taking place that affect the surface of the concrete. These inherent properties of the material share the story of how your piece was created and no two pieces are ever the same. If the variation on the concrete didn't exist, then the concrete wouldn't be what it truly is, handmade.
Hard Topix has the highest level of quality control in our systems and processes, we batch and weigh our concrete ingredients to the 100th of a gram and are committed to casting the best concrete products in the industry.
Below photos demonstrate the variation you may see on your piece which are completely acceptable in our industry. If you aren't comfortable with the fact that concrete is not perfect then maybe it's not the right fit for you.
