Did you know countertops come in all shapes and sizes? With solid surface counter tops, they do! You may not be familiar with the term solid surface countertop, but you’ve likely heard of the many brands that make them, like Corian, Wilsonart, Staron and LG. Is a solid surface counter top the right choice for your location?
Benefits of a Solid Surface Countertop
- Unlike laminate and solid stone, solid surface counter tops can be molded into the shape you want.
- Solid surface countertops are seamless, creating a smooth, attractive surface that is easy to maintain and clean. These counter tops are a perfect fit for the food industry because food and water does not get trapped in seams.
- Unlike laminate, solid surface countertops do not hold stains.
- Like solid stone, the plastic-based material can be heated and repaired quickly and at a low cost. Laminate cannot be repaired when chipped.
- This material holds up much better than laminate materials, making it the perfect choice for heavy-use countertops.
- While this choice is not as inexpensive as laminate, it provides a higher quality without the high price of solid stone.
The Randal Spin
Many companies offer solid surface countertops, but most farm the work out to another manufacturer. At Randal Retail, we manufacture our solid surface countertops right here in our shop. Why? Because it’s important to us that you receive exactly what you need. It’s our quality guarantee. And to make sure that happens, we decided to make them ourselves. Our certified installers ensure that your countertops are installed just as you want them.
Solid Surface Countertops in Action
Recently we manufactured and installed solid surface counter tops in locker rooms and bathrooms for a client who needed seamless counter tops with completely integrated sink bowls and back splashes. The countertops needed to be maintenance friendly. And they needed to be long. Longer than a typical counter top and longer than what most manufacturers provide. With the flexibility of solid surface countertops, we were able to meet all our client’s needs.
You can also see Randal Retail’s solid surface countertop work at the Internet bars in Time Warner’s NYC flagship store. The curvy tops dip down, almost like a slide, which is a shape you could not achieve with laminate or solid stone.
