Corian solid surface products have been around for a long time and served well in certain situations.   Take a look at how it compares to granite.

  • Toughness: Hands down, granite is harder—hard as glass in most cases. 
  • Heat Resistance: Unlike Corian, which will melt, granite is heat-proof.
  • Repairs: If chipped, which is rare, granite is easily repairable, while Corian-type surfaces scratch easily and can be visible on dark colors. 
  • Staining: Granite is stain-proof with specialty stone sealer. 
  • Daily care: Granite requires simple soap and water, nothing more. Stay away from ammonia-based cleaners and you are good to go. (Many granite cleaners can provide the same streak-free shine as ammonia-based cleaners.)
  • Annual maintenance: By choosing a lifetime durable sealer, customers never have to seal their countertops again.
