Our specialty. Copper counter tops can be fabricated from
16, 20, 24 and 48 oz copper. At Riverside, we always
recommend 48 oz copper for it's durability and ease to weld.
The thinner the material is, the easiest it is to get dented with usage.
Some customers prefer the thinner material for that reason, which will get you
a top with more character, something that looks used.
Riverside also offers installation services in Massachusetts and parts of of New England
Gauges: Depending on the look chosen, or project budget, you can choose from 16 oz, 20 oz, 24 oz and 48 oz per square foot copper.
Lighter gauges will be more easily dented, if you're going for a more "beat-up", rustic look. Thicker gauges are more resistant and will
Why copper: Copper's beauty is defined by its ever changing looks. It is considered a "living material" since
its colors and patina change with time, depending on usage and exposure. It is also a great material
for counter tops much like stainless steel for its anti-bacterial properties.
Joints: Tops can be welded and finished to look
with 48 oz. They can also be
in any other thickness.
When tops are sold in separate pieces, the customer can place the parts
together and seal them, with a simple butt joint, or have someone weld
or solder in the field. We can also add rivets, bolts or anything else to
give that extra detailed look to your counter top.
Finishes: Counter tops are beautiful additions to kitchens, bars and restaurants for either a
modern or rustic look, depending on the finish applied. Finishes
available are: raw, dark patina, green patina, brushed and satin finish. Hand hammered copper is also an option.

It is important to note that the material's look is ever changing unless a clear coat is applied.
Substrate: Riverside we also provides and pre-glues the plywood substrate, available as birch, mdf or mdo.
