Solid Surface for your kitchen
Recently, we ran across an article titled, “Costly Stone, Alternatives to Granite Countertops” and it brought out a couple of great points in comparing Granite to Solid Surfaces. Consider the lifespan of your countertop materials. Al Gerhart, expert in the matter, indicates that some granite and cement countertops can crack, chip, and stain, becoming unusable after just a few years of use. Solid Surface or any other engineered composite countertops are much easier to repair! The article also described how the "mining" of granite blocks leaves a considerable impact on the environment, while conversion from blocks to usable slabs that end up in your home produces a large amount of waste for which no alternative use has been developed. Composite products such as solid surface countertops have a far smaller "waste footprint" with a higher potential for recycling than other products. While this article did not mention pricing, Engineered Composites such as Solid Surface materials are more affordable than ever! When you add up the benefits of affordability, longer lifespan and being safer for the environment it makes sense to look into Solid Surfaces for your next kitchen countertop! IMI’s Kitchen Counter Tops are manufactured using the newest technology in Solid Surface Polymers and MasterCast Performance Engineered Composites. They also can be made in dimensions that will work in any type of kitchen.
