Also going by the name Corian, a solid surface countertop is perfect for achieving a seamless look that resembles natural stone and is non-porous. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen, here’s why you should get solid surface countertops for your kitchen

1. Non-Porous & Homogenous Surface

It’s not possible to get a perfectly non-porous surface, but Corian is as close as you can get, quartz being the second in line. Unlike natural stone, which is a wild and chaotic conglomeration of particles that form the slab, Corian is relatively smooth and beautiful. 

According to Kitchen Infinity’s corian vs. laminate chart, corian has a more stable base as compared to laminates that are mounted on a medium density fiberboard. Corian has a seamless surface from top to bottom, which means that is the same all the way, creating a beautifully homogenous product that was the main concept behind the invention of the material. The benefit of this homogenous property is that it makes damage repair easier as compared to any other countertop material. 

2. High Durability

Not a fan of frequent kitchen remodels and spending money on damage repairs? Corian can be your best friend! Another advantage that corian surfaces have over natural stone or laminates is that since it is non-porous, it does not require sealing and doesn’t get damaged really easily. They are resistant to stains, scratches and any elemental damages like UV exposure.

The sheen will stay until your next kitchen remodel. All you need to do is clean your corian countertops regularly.

4. Easy Damage Repair

Any material is prone to some sort of damage due to cutting or high mechanical impact. But what matters is how easy it is to repair it. In case of natural stone, once cracked, it can only be repaired by a professional. Since they are porous materials, they need delicate care. But you don’t worry about that large scale damage repair cost with Corian countertops. Any scratches can be easily repaired using an orbital sander or a fine grain sandpaper that don’t require the help of a professional and saves you a good sum of damage repair costs.
