The very first thing that you notice upon entering a kitchen or bathroom is the cabinetry. A split-second later the eye roams to the countertop: a crucial element of the room, carrying significant weight in the look and beauty of the home. Countertops also factor into your wet bar and outdoor kitchen. There is a perfect choice for each room of the house and the large selection at Schrapper’s, both in materials and color palette, is formidable.
Sometimes you are not in the market for a complete renovation. Schrapper’s can add a little newness with new countertops. You’d be surprised how much they improve upon an older kitchen or bathroom.

Manufactured by DuPont®, Corian® is an easy-to-clean solid surface that comes with certification (NSF/ANSI 51) for food contact. What this means is the nonporous material resists stains and the growth of mold, bacteria and mildew when kept clean. The product line includes: countertops, backsplashes and integrated sinks.
Silestone® offers a unique aspect to their product: Microban™ antimicrobial product protection. Additionally, certifications by both the Greenguard Environmental Institute and the National Sanitation Foundation translate to a safer food preparation surface and air quality due to low-to-no off gassing emission of toxic chemicals. When you consider the versatility, manufacturing process and design aesthetics, this product makes sense for use in countertops, floors and walls.
This product is manufactured with up to 93% natural quartz; the balance is an aggregate with pigments and polymer resins. What this means in layman’s terms is the hardest, most beautifully manufactured material available to man. The color and design choices may be the most extensive you’ve ever seen, with new products coming out continuously. Caesarstone’s® past is impressive: they’ve been around for 25 years and actually made history with their unique vision and cutting-edge technology. Their plant is impressive beyond words, producing product for every application where hard surfaces are needed and installed.
