Corian, Formica and HI-MACS solid surface countertops

Solid surface countertops are a popular surface being used in kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects. Dupont Corian solid surface countertops have been around for over 50 years now, and a half-century birthday is one milestone that this surface material well deserves.

As the name implies, they are made from solid synthetic material which gives them many of their characteristics. The word solid in solid-surface does evoke the idea that this is a stable base, unlike bouncy laminates. But that is a peripheral meaning. The inventor Dupont’s true intent was to create a surface that was the same through-and-through. A homogenous product, Corian’s top is the same as its middle, and the middle is the same as its bottom.

Sierra Remodeling offers three lines of solid surface countertops – Corian, Formica and HI-MACS – for your kitchen and bath remodels. We have many Corian, Formica and HI-MACS solid surface samples to choose from at Sierra Remodeling. Give us a call at (520) 459-3164 and schedule a visit to our showroom floor. We are located at 1840 S. Highway 92 in Sierra Vista, Arizona!

OUR SOLID SURFACE COUNTERTOPS
What are Solid Surface Countertops?

Sturdy acrylics are used to produce solid surface kitchen and bathroom countertops. They have quickly become a popular choice for many homes, offering the advantages of laminate countertops but with greater quality and without the main disadvantages. Popularized by leading brands such as Corian, HI-MACS, Formica and others, they offer versatility and very good durability in a wide range of colors.

Strengths and Weaknesses
Benefits & Strengths
  • These are very hard, very durable countertops for the kitchen and bathroom. Unlike laminate, the solid surface’s material goes all the way through, from top to bottom. As a result, it resists impact better.
  • Nearly Non-Porous: No surface is completely non-porous, but tile, quartz, and solid surface come as close to being non-porous as any countertop material. Solid surface’s extremely low porosity keeps bacteria away, promoting a cleaner and more sanitary countertop.
  • Corian countertops are available in over 100 different colors as well as many patterns.
  • Many of the looks are patterned after more expensive materials like granite, stone or quartz countertops.
  • Because of the variety, these countertops can be used in virtually any style of kitchen or bathroom, working well in both traditional and contemporary homes.
  • The surfaces of HI-MACS and Corian countertops is solid, tough and non-porous, making them very easy to clean and maintain.
  • When custom made, solid surface countertops are made to present a seamless look in any kitchen or bathroom. Integrated sinks can also be produced with Corian, Formica, HI-MACS and other brands of kitchen and bathroom countertops.
Weaknesses
  • Corian countertops and other solid surface countertops are not as resistant to heat as stone or quartz countertops.
  • These bathroom and kitchen countertops can also be scratched, but since they are solid in their color throughout, many scratches can be removed with careful sanding.
  • In terms of cost, solid surface countertops are on the upper end of the price spectrum but are not as costly as quartz, concrete, granite or other stone countertops.
Who Should Consider Solid Surface Countertops?

    We had Sierra Remodeling install a new shower and replace the old tub with an attractive, functional bench/storage cabinet, in our master bathroom. Thomas and Bob did their usual excellent job on the shower. Gerald created the beautiful bench with a spacious oak cabinet underneath. And Matt added the finishing touches, including the addition of a new window in the shower. The resulting overall craftsmanship is unsurpassed and fit our budget perfectly.

    Very professional, personable, and friendly from start to finish. Every person assigned to the project, from the project manager Jeremy to all the workers/contractors did an exceptional job with the tear-down due to the damage and the rebuild. We are absolutely delighted with every aspect of the project, and we would not hesitate to use this company again for any future construction or remodel jobs. THANK YOU to Gerald, Justin, Cody, Alex, Pablo, Larry, Robert, Francisco, and anyone else we may...

    We had a partial remodel done on our master bathroom. Sierra Remodeling did an outstanding job...it is beautiful and we love it. We didn't even shop around to compare prices. After our initial meeting with Kevin we knew that we just wanted to use Sierra Remodeling. The installers were prompt, communicated with us, and cleaned up after themselves. They were all a joy to have around, especially Robert. It is always hard to have a remodel done when you have to live in the house while the work...

    This is the third time we've had Sierra Remodeling & Home Builders do work for us. We've been happy each time, but this time the addition of beams to our ceiling just made our living room pop. As a friend of mine in England said upon seeing this picture, "It looks like a photo you'd see in a magazine." Super happy with the whole thing. Guys were awesome. Thank you, Sierra Remodeling for another job well done.

    We are very pleased with the ceiling & stucco repair we received from Sierra Remodeling. Rudy was professional and kind, stopping by to evaluate our job, and to provide an estimate. He also called, and stopped by more than once, to provide information, and to follow up, once the job was complete. Justin R. was very diligent in his work, and the finished product looks great! We will be happy to call on Sierra Remodeling for future work, and to recommend the company to others.
