SOLID SURFACE COUNTERTOPS
Solid surfaces are made under a variety of names such as Corian, Staron, Hi-Macs by LG and EOS. They are an acrylic or plastic material which is colored by resins. Very consistent in color and available in a variety of tones and patterns, the final product should look exactly as the sample you see in our showroom. As it is a plastic based material, it is not heat resistant, and care should be taken in cleaning and cutting on its surface. It is susceptible to scratching, but one benefit is that a scratch can generally be buffed back out. Solid surfaces are mold and mildew resistant and there is no need to seal them. These tops are most recommended in a bathroom or laundry room. They also make great desk tops in a kitchen area and if care is taken, can make a suitable counter surface in other areas of the kitchen as well.
