Solid surface countertops were introduced over 50 years ago and while some counter materials may be considered to be a fad, solid surfaces have remained quite “solid”. When Dupont invented solid surface counters, the intent was for them to look like natural stone, but unlike stone, would be non-porous. They also wanted to create a surface that was the same through-and-through. If you look at a crosscut of any solid surface product, you will notice that the top, middle, and bottom are all the same.
Advantages of Solid Surface Counters
- Completely Non-porous: This prevents bacteria from collecting or growing on the counter which promotes a cleaner and more sanitary countertop.
- Strong: Solid surface counters are the same all the way through so will resist impact better.
- Easy to Repair: Solid surface will scratch if you cut on it, however with the products provided by the manufacturer, it is a simple task to sand down the scratches.
Types of Solid Surfaces
