Corian? What kind of countertop is that? Well at Kenneth C Lewis we only use the finest quality materials for our countertops, and corian is one of them. A brief history lesson entails; DuPont developed Corian, seeking to provide a solid, non-porous surface. It was introduced into the market in 1967 and it boomed instantly, because of its diverse use and easy maintenance. Corian is a blend of natural materials and pure acrylic polymers. Some of the newer Corian countertops may offer a blend of polyester materials. Polyester is a more popular component for design, because it offers richer color options, however the durability compared to acrylic is far less. Because they are non-porous, Corian countertops are highly resilient to stains and high heat and are easy to clean.
The design and durability of Corian countertops make maintaining them easy. Just soapy water and ammonia-based products are the best to keep your Corian looking clean and new. Even scratches can be easily repaired with light sanding. Since it is made out of 100 percent acrylic-based material, it has a long-lasting beauty and superior strength. And it won't fade in the sunlight. The material's long history of use attests to its durability and help to sustain its positive characteristics and benefits.
A material this good has to be expensive right? Wrong. Corian is more affordable and provides greater beauty than laminate countertops, with less maintenance and repairs over the life of your kitchen design. Another benefit of Corian countertops is that they can be used outdoors and they do not pit, weather or lose their polished finish as stone does. So let Kenneth C. Lewis install your new Corian countertop today!
