Hi Ben, it was very fortunate that I met you at the World Of Concrete the very same day that you met Gerry with Concrete Solutions to start your business partnership. The excitement you had when you shared your Ashby System photos with me was truly contagious. I have been operating my decorative concrete coating business since 1987 and have been an installer of Concrete Solution products since 1997 attending their second ever training course. It has been just over 2 years since I attended my first class with you and for the life of me I cannot remember just how many kitchens, bathrooms, and BBQ countertops I have done! The Ashby System is by far the most popular product we install, and how I love to be off my knees. What sets Countertop Solutions Ashby Systems apart from others is as soon as you see it you cannot believe it is concrete. It has the look of a priceless family heirloom of which you can sell a style, a warm feeling, a conversation piece. The other systems claim to be able to make it look like anything you want, but trying to sell ‘anything’ takes a very long time. Your new website honors me by showing my very first job – a kitchen counter and triple sink – as the first photo on your home page and is a testimonial to your comprehensive teaching technique.

Ben and Gerry may not make ice cream here, but in my opinion may be the best combination of artistic ability, innovation, and talent any two guys could have. Your success means our success, and that works for me.

Thanks again,
Ken Barriault
