3 Reasons to Consider Corian® Countertops, Hilo, Hawaii

When choosing surface materials for your bathroom or kitchen remodel, your contractor might recommend Corian® countertops—but why? Corian countertops from DuPont™ offer an innovative solution between laminate and granite. The specialists at Big Island Countertops in Hilo, Hawaii, say these counters are often more affordable than granite or quartz varieties, and, cost aside, they offer an array of benefits to homeowners. Consider the following three reasons to choose Corian countertops for your remodeling project.

3 Benefits of Corian Countertops

1. Versatile Look

Corian countertopWhen it comes to Corian countertops, there are currently more than 100 colors and a variety of patterns for customers to choose from. Made of acrylic polymers and stone-derived materials, these surfaces can be custom-configured into any shape to complement your specific design. You can also highlight your Corian countertops by illuminating them from underneath.

2. Low-Maintenance Needs

Corian surfaces are relatively easy to clean, and you can use soap and water or an abrasive cleaner to achieve the results you desire. While scratches and discoloration can occur, these countertops are durable, resistant to cracks, and incredibly low-maintenance. However, they are not quite as durable as granite or natural stone counters. Corian isn’t resistant to heat, so keep hot pans off your countertops to maintain their condition.

3. Affordable Fixes

If your Corian countertops suffer dents or scratches, don’t worry—these flaws are easy and inexpensive to repair. The material is extremely pliable, so it can also be used to install or repair seamless counters.

Compared to stone materials such as granite, Corian countertops are less expensive to install, making them an excellent option for budget-conscious homeowners. If you’d like to see samples of the material or need help choosing a design, call Big Island Countertops at (808) 961-6633 to schedule a consultation.
