- Scratches can be sanded out – by far, one of the greatest advantages of solid surface countertop material.
- There are many available colors, and you have the option of a bonded continuous sink installation as well as undermount, vessel, apron, and drop in.
- Solid surface is used in many commercial applications due to its durability, look, and the fact that it does not harbor bacteria
