Solid Surface is primarily acrylic and polyester solids formed into a solid piece of countertop. When designing your countertop you have several options for thickness and edges. Corian is one brand that has a variety of colors and style we can offer you when designing your kitchen. An advantage of solid surface is its easy maintenance since it is non-porous and requires no sealing. If the surface is ever damaged, repairs are possible since the material is the same color throughout meaning scratches and burns can be easily sanded away.
Engineered Stone is another type of solid surface. Made up of tiny pieces of granite, stone or glass in a resin, it is stronger than granite and environmentally friendly.
Since it is a manufactured piece, color and consistency of appearance makes it desirable. It can look like marble, granite or limestone but have more strength and stain resistance than a natural material. It is also non-porous and strong. Much like the solid surface, easy maintenance makes it perfect for our busy lifestyle in Baton Rouge. We carry several brand names including Cambria, which offers a beautiful selection of colors, styles and edge profiles.
Why use it?
Many use solid surface countertops for the esthetic look it gives. It especially goes well with a contemporary style. The countertops do not have seams creating a clean line and smooth surface. Since it is non-porous, the bacteria resistance is also a plus.
If building on a boat and weight is an issue, Corian weighs much less per square foot. This product is popular because you can choose an exact color and not worry about selecting the slab and avoid having an undesirable vein that can go through a natural stone slab. You can select your countertop from a sample, saving you trips to select a slab.
