SOLID SURFACE

Solid Surface

Our most popular countertop choice, we proudly offer Corian and Staron solid surface countertops. Corian, and Staron, are brand names of solid surface countertop materials. While Corian is the brand name that most people are familiar with, both Corian and Staron offer the same longevity, durability, and long-term beauty, Staron solid surface offers a less expensive, and cost-saving alternative to Corian without giving up any quality.

Both Staron and Corian solid surface:

Our solid surface is 100% acrylic – no polyester or other additives. Acrylic is far less prone to cracking or chipping, and seams are virtually invisible. Polyester is more brittle, more prone to cracks and breaking during fabrication and installation, and seams are more difficult to make and are more visible.

  • The color goes through the entire thickness of the material
  • Solid surface is non-porous and therefore extremely resistant to stains, mildew, and germs
  • Top mounted, under mounted, and seamed in (all-in-one) sink installations are possible
  • We can supply and install under-mounted stainless steel sinks, and 100% acrylic seamed-in sinks

SINK OPTIONS

TOP MOUNTED SINKS – also called self-rimming sinks, are the ‘standard’ option. Self-rimming sinks are available in a wide array of materials, colors, and sizes. You supply the sink, and Brothers will cut the correct size and shape hole that your sink requires.
UNDER-MOUNTED SINKS – offer a cleaner, easier to live with alternative to top mounted sinks.  Brothers offers both stainless undermounted sinks, and composite undermounted sinks.  Because the sink is ‘under’ the countertop, there is no ridge or lip from the countertop surface to the sink. This is especially helpful when cleaning your countertops. You are also welcome to supply your own undermounted sinks to us.
FARM SINKS – also called apron front sinks, are popular choice for many kitchens. Farm sinks are undermounted, but the face of the sink is seen.  We at Brothers are happy to accomodate your apron front farm sink into your cabinets and countertops.
SEAMED-IN SINKS – also called integrated sinks – give the cleanest look and feel to your kitchen or bath. The 100% acrylic sinks are made of the same durable material as your solid surface countertops, and give you the same stain resistant finish. Because the sinks are made of the same material as the countertop, they are not only under-mounted, but there is no joint or seam between the countertop and the sink. Our seamed in sinks are available for kitchens and baths, as well as prep sinks and bar sinks. They come in a variety of sizes and configurations.

Solid surface offers design flexibility:
