Manufactured under names like Corian, Wilsonart, Staron, Swanstone and Formica, solid-surface countertops are tough, hard-working surfaces. They're available in dozens of colors and patterns that mimic the look of stone. Solid-surface countertops also eliminate much of the hassle of upkeep. They're easy to repair, resist stains and scratches, and require little to no maintenance.
According to Home Adviser, the average cost to purchase granite and have it installed can cost between $2,000 and $4,000. You can save money by purchasing the material from a wholesaler and doing some of the preliminary work yourself but the actual fabrication and installation of the countertops should be left to a professional.
The color and pattern are consistent throughout the countertop, so it will not change its appearance with wear and tear that naturally occurs over time. The overall look of a Corian countertop is smooth and similar to that of a stone surface. Damage can be easily repaired with scrubbing or light sanding.
