Atlanta Countertop Specialists Craftmark Share Advantages of Solid Surface Countertops

The Atlanta countertops experts, Craftmark Solid Surfaces, talk about why you may want to consider buying solid surface countertops instead of granite or quartz. The main advantage this material provides is waterproof seams.

    ATLANTA, GA, October 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta countertops dealers, Craftmark Solid Surfaces, would like to take a few moments to talk about the pros of solid surface countertops. Granite, marble, and quartz always seem to come to mind when the question of which countertop material to choose is raised. This is for a good reason, too, as each of these stones is stain-resistant, durable, and aesthetically stunning.

The diverse range of color palettes makes the buying process all the more unique and enjoyable. However, one material that has a number of distinct advantages over its counterparts but has yet to reach the same level of popularity (namely due to general consumer unawareness) is solid surface.

Solid Surface for the Win

These non-porous countertops are comprised of polyester resins, acrylic, bauxite, pigment, and marble dust, and have a smooth surface that with seams that are undetectable to the naked eye. This naturally makes solid surface countertops the most moisture and stain-resistant of any other material. Also, and perhaps most importantly given the spaces they are installed in (kitchen and bathrooms), solid surface is the best material available for preventing the growth and spread of bacteria.

According to Melinda Pulliam, Director of Marketing for the Atlanta granite countertops professionals, "Solid surface is a gem many homeowners do not know about, but should. The material is extremely durable and is highly resistant to stains and bacteria growth. While the standard matte finish looks great and is very low-maintenance, glossy options are also available." The one downside to choosing this material is the higher risk of scratches and cracks, but such problems are common for any surface when proper care is not taken to prevent them.
