Solid Surface Countertops

Developed specifically for the Kitchen and Bath industry with today's sophisticated homeowners desires and needs in mind, solid surface countertops combine the desirable characteristics of  beauty, easy care and ruggedness.  Solid surface countertops such as Corian, is a synthetic blend of natural minerals and high-performance acrylic, as a practical, inexpensive alternative to granite.  Manufacturers offer these products in several grade levels, which vary by the size of the mineral particles they contain. The higher the grade, the more they resemble granite, and the higher their price. Solid color styles are less granulated and do not resemble stone at all. Solid surface tops are much lighter weight than granite or natural stone, with " material weighing only 4.5 lbs per sq. ft. Solid surface countertops resist attack by acids, alkalis and water; they also will resist stains as well as the growth of bacteria, fungus, mold and mildew.

However, stain-resistance is not absolute, especially in coordinating sinks, which may require frequent scrubbing to maintain their original color and finish.  Manufacturers' warranties generally range from 10-15 years, when properly installed by a licensed fabricator.
