    There’s a new option open to countertop buyers. It’s really a manufactured stone product built to be set up on surface of existing laminate or tile countertops. The question is; how can it compare in value and performance to traditional countertop offerings?

    What exactly is it exactly?

    The overlay "granite" strategy is a man-made blend of granite, quartz, and also other stone particles when combined resins to form a ?" thick slab. It’s not at all granite in its natural state. This can be basically the comparable to traditional Quartz products like Silestone, Caesarstone, and Cambria except it is not as thick.

    Does thickness matter?

    It certainly does in terms of the look of the finished product. Traditional stone merchandise is 1-1/2" thick throughout. Since most people choose an under-mounted sink the thickness of the material is very evident. Reviews from the ?" overlay products have indicated the thin material looks cheap. Other quartz slab items are offered ?" thick slabs but only recommends them for tile or vertical surfaces.

    How must these products compare as to versatility of design?

    The most versatile product certainly is Solid Surface (i.e. Corian, LG HiMacs, etc.). Solid Surface is acrylic and polyester blends. It can formed into organic shapes (thermoforming) and polished with a selection of gloss levels. Edge profiles are restricted only by your imagination. Additionally it is the sole product that offers "integrated" sinks eliminating the silicone round the sink which makes them more hygienic and easy to scrub.

    Traditional stone products like Granite and Quartz provide a staggering selection of colors, edge options, or a few different finishes on the outside. The commonest finish is glossy; however, "leather" (matte) finishes are becoming popular. Some stone countertop manufacturers can also be capable of applying a variety of other finishes on the the surface of stone.

    The stone overlay product offers fewer texture and color options. Edge options are also limited because of the thickness in the material. The products are only available with one type of gloss finish.

    Why don’t you consider the price of removing old countertops?

    Generally removing old countertops can be a fast and painless process. A good countertop company will tidy up any mess created from a removal. Typically removals take about A half-hour for laminate leading to 2 hours for tile. Price of removal varies depending upon what type of countertops you’ve got. Some companies may even remove your old countertops at no cost.

    How must they compare in price?

    This may vary dependant on many factors. Generally, the stone overlay goods are comparable in price to common granite, quartz, and solid surface products. Exotic granites along with the "designer" colors of quartz and solid surface may well be more expensive.

    How about durability?

    Thickness also is important in durability. Because the stone overlay products are relatively new it’s too soon to express how well they’re going to last after a while.
