Solid Surfaces

Solid Surface countertops come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. They can be used for a myriad of applications including kitchen and vanity countertops, shower walls, tub surrounds, integrated sinks, and backsplashes to name a few.

Looking for a clean and seamless look when it comes to your countertops? Solid surface could be the perfect material choice for you! Unlike natural stone, solid surface is nonporous and homogeneous. These characteristics make the material antimicrobial, stain resistant, and consistent in color. Solid surface countertops are made with acrylic or polyester resin mixed with natural minerals. Seams in Solid Surface countertops are virtually undetectable and integrated sink options are available to ensure a consistent and continuous surface for almost any application.


  • Repairable: Minor scratches and stains can be removed using fine grit sandpaper and Scotch-Brite pads. It is recommended to use a cutting board to avoid any potential damage to your countertop surface.
  • Nonporous: This property helps stop the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria with proper cleaning.
  • Virtually Seamless: No nooks and crannies to worry about hard to clean areas on your countertop.


  • Scratches: As Solid Surface material is an acrylic product, you run the risk of leaving scratches on your countertops if you cut directly on them. But with a cutting board easily at hand, you can avoid this issue. The good news is most surface scratches can be easily repaired.
  • Heat: Solid Surfaces can withstand temperatures up to 212 F°. Placement of items above that temperature directly on this surface can lead to deformation or scorching. Hot pads or trivets are recommended to avoid any heat damage.
