Epoxy Resin Countertops

Resin is a type of solid surface countertop but with more variations. It is produced in a pleasing array of colors and textures.

Pros and Cons of Resin Countertops: On the plus side, resin counters are very durable, impact-resistant and very easy to clean. Most hold their color very well, even in direct sunlight. Small scratches or nicks can be sanded out of the countertop. Newer resin tops can be made with less pigment, giving them a semi-opaque, translucent quality. This is ideal for backlighting the countertops, giving them a very unique appearance. The key potential negative for resin countertops is the lack of consistent quality from brand to brand. Look for acrylic or Epoxy Resin Countertops and avoid polyester resin countertops.

Resin Price Range: $51-$127 per square foot.
