Solid Surface and Cultured Marble are manufactured, composite materials that look like natural materials such as granite and marble. Some prefer these manufactured materials because they tend to be more resistant to stains and breakage than the natural stone. These manufactured materials are both lighter and less expensive than real stone. A wide variety of shapes and contours can be achieved with these materials. If you are not a purist and you want to save money, this might be the way to go in your remodel or addition. The cost of solid surface and cultured marble is about the same as most laminate materials. These materials can be used for kitchen counters, bathroom vanity tops, and shower surrounds.
