How do you cut or drill the material?


Lightweight: The material can be cut and drilled either on site or in a workshop. Circular / skill saws, traditional drill bits and finishing tools can be used to manipulate the material. For more information please see our downloads page Cast: For the best results all cut outs should be done in the workshop. Cemento Cast Concrete can have holes cut, sink cut outs, drainage grooves or rebates. We can provide cut outs to CAD drawings or a physical template.




Can I buy it as a sheet material and cut it myself?


We can provide the material in sheet format for you to work as you wish. However, we advise consulting us - Cemento UK - before doing so. We can guide you through the best methods of cutting, joining and finishing the material. We collaborate with the best joinery workshops to produce stylish finished projects.




How do you joint the panels?


Lightweight: - ‘V’ Joint (2mm chamfered edges on each panel) - Square edge with concrete fill - Shadow gap detail - Corner details – Chamfer / ‘Bird’s beak detail / metal covering trim Cast:




How is the surface repaired if it chips?


Lightweight: Cimento® is very durable against general wear and tear. The 2mm of concrete is hard wearing but corners and edges can be chipped if hit by heavy items. We can supply a repair kit that consists of the concrete mix, liquids, sealant and finishing tools to patch any chips on the surface. However, we advise discussing this with us before doing so. Touching up the panels is quick and easy to do once the product is installed on site. For more information please refer our downloads page to view our touch up guide Cast: This is a very durable and hard wearing material, however corners and edges can be chipped if hit by heavy items. Areas with damage can be fixed with a concrete mix application, sanding and re-application of sealants to patch any chips on the surface. Touching up the panels requires a professional once the product is installed on site.




What is the lead time?


The lead time is dependent on the quantity needed and the complexity of the design, as well as resources required at the workshop. We gauge the time needed for manufacture and advise on a programme once drawings and details have been reviewed. Lightweight: For a straight forward panelling product in the most conventional format, a lead time of 4-5 weeks is possible. Up to 10 weeks may be needed from the date of purchase order in the case of Cimento® clad doors, reception desks, tea points, copy points, etc. We gauge the time needed for manufacture and advise on a programme once drawings and details have been reviewed. Cast: For a straight forward panelling product in the most conventional format, a lead time of 6-8 weeks is possible. Up to 12 weeks may be needed from the date of purchase order in the case of more complex designs.




How much does Cemento cost?


We cost the product on a project by project basis. A square metre price is dependent on a number of points: - The quantity ordered - There is a minimum order of 10m² - The support material - What sealant is chosen - If 90° corners are required - The complexity of the design Please call or email us with the information above and we can provide a quick quotation.
