Non-Porous – Resists stains and doesn’t require any sealing
Durable – Impact resistant
Long Lasting – Can be maintained for a long period of time.
Seamless Joints – Allows for expansive stretches of countertop without visible seams and integral sinks with no visible joints (other than the delineation between a sink and countertop of different colors).
Waterproof – No worries about water damage in the proximity of sinks
Manufactured Widely – Numerous makers result in a wide color selection and great price comparison
Warm Feel – Doesn’t feel as cold to the touch as stone, metal or tile
Homogeneous – The color and pattern goes all the way through the material so that it maintains its look even if it needs slight maintenance
Not Tolerant to High Heat – Being a plastic, it’s not immune to high heat sources or possible damage from the application of hot cookware
Glossy Surfaces Limit Practicality – Glossy surfaces will tend to show scratches and dull more easily than other finishes which are more practical in frequent-use areas
Prone to Scratches and Cuts – Plastic is obviously softer than metal, stone and tile and will need more care to avoid this type of wear and tear
Requires Skilled Fabricators – Longevity, quality and sometimes warranty depend on the skills and qualifications of the fabricator installing the countertop
The quantity of colors and patterns varies among manufacturers. Each brand will have their own different color categories and while there are similarities, there are differences as well. Some specialize in very unique colors not offered by other manufacturers. Cost will vary somewhat among manufacturers and even between color and pattern selections within a particular brand selection. Delorie Countertops & Doors should always be your first choice for countertops and more.
