DENVER SOLID SURFACE COUNTERTOPS
Solid surface countertops have been available since the 1960s and are a popular option in many kitchens and baths. Solid surface is a perfect mid-range countertop material for buyers not interested in laminate, but still looking for an affordable alternative to stone. It is also one of the only countertop materials around that can be resurfaced with a simple orbital sander.
Custom solid surface countertops offer a unique balance of beauty, durability, and affordability. Solid surface countertops are easy to clean, retain their original beauty for many years and look great with brass, tile, and granite.
Visually, solid surface doesn’t have the depth of genuine stone, but it looks like it more than many other alternatives.
DURABLE, HEALTH-PROMOTING SURFACE
Quartz countertops are engineered stone surfaces. Quartz is a popular alternative to granite and is manufactured from loose quartz and resin, and tinted Solid surface countertops are nearly non-porous which keeps bacteria away, promoting a cleaner and more sanitary countertop. They are also homogeneous, meaning a solid surface’s material goes all the way through, from top to bottom. Dents or scratches don’t look as bad as they would on a multilayered product such as laminate. This also makes them easy to repair as small scratches can be sanded away easily.
