Laminate

Laminate has seen great innovation over the last two years and continues to redefine its position in the market. 

ABOUT Laminate

Laminate closely imitates the look of natural stone by taking hi-definition pictures of real stones and incorporating them into their design.  Laminate countertops resist stains, are impact resistant, and withstand abrasive pads nicely.  These countertops are a great option for tighter budgets.
