Corian, Silestone and Other Solid Surfaces
Solid Surface Countertops – Are you looking to install Corian or Silestone countertops?
Kitchen counters can be made out of a variety of materials including granite, concrete, tile, wood, and laminates, such as Formica. In addition, relatively new technology has led to the development of engineered or synthetic composite materials like Dupont’s Corian, Silestone, and Swanstone. These man-made materials make great countertops, but they are an expensive option when considering them to replace a laminate or tile countertop. If you’re considering installation of Corian, Silestone, or another solid surface, also consider the time, cost and repair advantages of countertop refinishing by Miracle Method.
Solid Surface Countertops – What are they?
A solid surface countertop refers to any type of kitchen countertop that is installed to give the appearance of a single material. Granite countertops and engineered countertop surfaces like Corian, Silestone, and Swanstone are popular, but expensive to buy and install. Miracle Method’s Natural Accents provides a similar stone solid surface look at a fraction of the cost, and unlike these products has greater color options and is repairable. Natural Accents surfaces are ideal for kitchen countertops, sinks, tub surrounds, vanities, and showers.
