Solid Surface surfaces are a composition of acrylic resin, dyes, and other aggregates. These surfaces are nonporous, strong, and easily repairable. They require very little maintenance and are easy to clean – just use a soft rag and mild soap. Solid Surfaces can be thermoformed, and many designs are opaque and can be back lit, creating infinite aesthetic possibilities. Solid Surfaces are rated food safe, making them perfect for commercial and residential kitchens and bathrooms.
Quartz surfaces are composed of 90%-93% quartz and 10%-7% polyester resin. This composition makes quartz surfaces incredibly hard, strong, scratch resistant, and durable. Because quartz tops are poured and molded they are much less likely to have any egregious weak points, unlike their granite and marble counterparts. And, unlike granite and marble, quartz surfaces are nonporous, requiring little to no maintenance and making them stain resistant, easy to clean, food safe, and hygienic.
