Solid Surface Countertops, Orlando FL

There’s one solid surface that gives you the ultimate in freedom of expression and choice, in your kitchen, your bath, and throughout your home. It’s DuPont™ Corian® – it’s your surface. The one that makes whatever you see in it possible. Corian solid surface is easy to clean and is certified for food contact. Because Corian is nonporous, stains do not penetrate the surface. With proper cleaning, Corian also resists the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria. Corian products such as sinks and backsplashes can be perfectly integrated to create the illusion of a single, solid surface. With a cove-backsplash there are no cracks to collect dirt and moisture.

That’s why Wilsonart® created Solid Surface. These half-inch thick, 100% acrylic based surface products are solid, nonporous and do not require sealing. They’re naturally resistant to heat, mold, mildew and most stains, even tough stains are easily buffed away. They’re renewable and repairable — scratches are easily repaired.

Quartz countertops, Orlando FL

Quartz also referred to as Engineered Stone, not to be confused with Solid Surface materials, is more than 90% quartz combined with resins to bind it and pigments to give it color. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix. The resins also help make these counters stain and scratch resistant—and nonporous, so they never need to be sealed. These man made products come in a large range of consistent colors which do not occur naturally in nature, which in turn proves to be an advantage for Quartz when comparing to a natural stone product. Some of the brands we carry include, but are not limited to:
Cambria: Style isn’t just the things that surround you, it’s a way of life; an art. Cambria brings together inspired craftsmanship, American quality, and industry-leading innovation to create stunning natural stone masterpieces with legendary durability for years of flawless beauty.

Natural stone countertops, Orlando FL

Natural stone is just that; a product of nature, not man made. Blocks are removed from the quarry. The blocks are then cut, like a loaf of bread, into slabs, which are further fabricated into the final stone to be installed. Each block is unique making each slab different. Examples of different types of Natural Stone products are:
Granite is by far the most common rock found in the outer crust of the planet. Granite is formed by the cooling of magma in the ground.
Marble is metamorphosed sedimentary carbonate rock. Limestone or dolomite (carbonate rocks) are the typical base minerals. The swirling and veins in marble often result from mineral impurities which are in layers in the original limestone or dolomite.
Quartzite, not to be confused with Quartz, is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock. It is created when sandstone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure caused by tectonic plate compression in the crust of the earth. The stone is mined and sawn into slabs which are later precisely cut to become countertops. The tops are polished and sealed for beauty and durability.
Onyx is formed in caves as stalactites and stalagmites drip to form this precious stone. Onyx Countertops are a rarity as they bring a unique appearance with strikingly dramatic appeal
Soapstone is quarried, like granite and Quartz, and is composed primarily of magnesite, dolomite, chlorite and talc. Because Soapstone is nonporous

These countertops are available in a wide variety of colors, textures and patterns, ranging from options that look like marble to ones that mirror the appearance of stainless steel. The brands of laminate that we currently sell are the two top brands offered in the industry:

Solid Surface, Orlando FL

Solid Surface is a durable, non-porous, man-made material usually composed of a combination of marble dust, bauxite, acrylic, epoxy or polyester resins and pigments. It is most frequently used for seamless countertop installations. While it can be used in a kitchen setting, keep in mind that since this material contains more resin, it is a softer product. That being said, it can be damaged by heat and can also be subject to scars and scratches by solid, heavy objects. This is typically seen being used in commercial settings this day in age. Brands of Solid Surface that can be seen in our showroom are:

 

 

Wood Countertops, Orlando FL

Wood Countertops are constructed from pieces of hardwood laminated together with glue for strength and stability. They provide a warm, organic landing surface in a kitchen; one that is wonderfully forgiving, gentle on dishware, and able to absorb the noise of a busy household.
