What Are Laminate Countertops?

These are often called plastic laminate because the surfaces are plastic. Laminate countertops contain a hard particle board core with layers of plastic laminate bonded over the top of it. The plastic laminate is tough and fairly durable. The kitchen and bathroom countertops come in the widest variety of colors and patterns of any type of countertop. Many are made to mimic the look of more expensive surfaces like marble or granite.

This video introduces Wilsonart® HD® laminate countertops — the surprisingly smart alternative to granite. Sierra Remodeing provides the best in affordable design, technology and performance with scratch, stain and wear-resistant surfaces.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:

  • Laminate bathroom and kitchen countertops are made with higher quality than ever before. The process has been refined to make them more durable.
  • They also remain one of the most affordable types of countertops available with prices far below those for granite, quartz, tile, etc.
  • Laminates come in the widest selection too, with a large palette of colors, hundreds of patterns and designs, and now, textured surfaces too.
  • For cleanup, there’s nothing easier than laminate countertops. The surface is solid, without pores, so a soapy washcloth or sponge is usually all that is needed.
  • Laminate seams can be hidden more easily than most countertop seams.

Weaknesses:

  • Laminate countertops can be more easily scratched than most surfaces so it is best to do any cutting in the kitchen on a cutting board.
  • Laminate is not as heat resistant as other surfaces so hot pans should not be placed on laminate countertops.
  • In the bathroom, if you use hot hair tools, avoid setting them down hot on your laminate bathroom countertops.
  • If the laminate surface is scratched, burned or chipped, it is very difficult to repair.
  • While there are many attractive laminate colors and patterns, some may still want the natural beauty that more expensive countertop materials such as granite or wood provide.

Who Should Consider Laminate Countertops?

Laminate countertops are one of the best choices for those with a limited budget, a position most homeowners are in. Laminate counters are one of Sierra Remodeling’s most popular surfaces. We offer attractive finishes in a wide range of colors sure to match your décor and at very affordable prices. Laminate bathroom and kitchen countertops are easy to clean and don’t harbor harmful germs like porous surfaces do. They are great for kids’ bathrooms where they can be quickly sanitized with a disinfectant wipe.

Because of the color selection, affordability and versatility, laminate surfaces are also popular for home offices, laundry areas, workshops and other locations throughout the home. Most importantly, you should find the right kitchen countertop that suits your individual needs, and laminate is a good choice for those with a family that includes small children.

[Kitchen remodel]

Scott Miller visited our home and carefully listened to what we said we wanted to do with remodeling our kitchen. We then visited the showroom to see the remodeling design and the cabinets. The design gave us everything we requested and more. He helped us choose the new sink and faucet. He was able to get the exact counter tops we wanted. When a couple of items arrived that were not right, he immediately contacted the vendor to get what was needed.

The work went swiftly, the men were always on time, were friendly, and cleaned up every day. Once the new cabinets were installed they placed the old counter tops on and re-attached the sink and faucet so that we could function until the new items arrived. I have already recommended this company to two friends and will to others.

The remodeling design was more than we hoped for after 25 years of saving to have “our” kitchen. The materials arrived quickly and the work went swiftly. A couple of cabinet doors needed to be replaced and that was taken care of right away. Somewhere in transit, part of the counter top was broken. The others were installed and the replacement came within two weeks. This was terrific in that this particular top is no longer made by the company and there was no supply stock — they were able to fix the broken top and it fits perfectly. The workers always arrived on time, were friendly, and cleaned every day. The plumber who was subcontracted was not as expected, but this company (Sierra Remodeling) immediately fixed the problems. Scott visited several times to make sure everything was going well and to ask for our input. Every item on our tick list was taken care of in a timely manner. Today, we have a beautiful kitchen with cabinets, counter tops, sink and faucet exactly as we had envisioned. We have already recommended this company to two friends which is unusual after most experiences with contractors.
