How much do concrete countertops cost? The short answer is concrete countertops can range from very inexpensive to moderately expensive. In either case they are a cheaper alternative to marble or granite tops. So why the large discrepancy in price? It comes down to whether you are willing to Do-It-Yourself, or whether you would like to hire a professional. By making it a DIY job, you can save thousands of dollars and do an entire moderate sized kitchen for under $1000. This can be compared to paying a professional $45 per sq. ft. and up.
