Solid surface offers limitless design options, making it a go-to for custom work. It's a non-porous material, which makes it a perfect option for hospitals, schools, food prep and many other commercial applications. Bacteria can not hide and grow in solid surface like it can in porous materials. The color runs throughout the product, which makes repairing scratches and any other damage an easy fix. Another advantage of solid surface is its inconspicuous seams. You can layout entire kitchens or large conference tables without having to worry about field joints.
