The biggest advantage to solid surface counters is the flexible design possibilities. Solid surface counters are made through a process of heat and pressure that is applied to mixtures of acrylic or polyester resins, powder fillers and pigments. This means they can be formed to any shape and size.
The visual versatility in appearance and the cost of solid surface countertops are distinct advantages over other types of surfaces.
Any color or pattern can be created by adding various additives that can give speckled looks like granite or particles that give a swirled look like marble. There are processes that can even add specks of metal that give the countertop a copper-like appearance. The surface can be finished with a high gloss ranging all the way down to a dull matte finish.
The cost of creating such wonderful countertops is considerably less than a natural stone. There are many different edge treatments, finishes, and sink types that can be incorporated into your solid surface countertops to fit any vision.
Solid surface countertops are the perfect way to achieve a sleek, modern look in any space in your home. Get the high-end appearance of stone or wood without paying nearly the same price. The material is:
- Non-porous, impervious to bacteria
- Low maintenance
- Cheaper than quartz or granite
- Renewable – if it’s scratched or damaged we’ll come out and repair it
