It doesn’t matter whether you are considering epoxy counter tops for your workshop, kitchen, or bathroom, there are many advantages over other countertop materials. These countertops can be found in all sorts of appealing colors and textures while offering superior durability compared to the alternatives. If you’re gauging whether this is the right countertop for your needs, make sure to read on to find out all the advantages.
High Level of Durability
When you talk about epoxy counter tops, the most significant advantage compared to other countertops comes in the extreme durability. These countertops have a high level of impact resistance capability and can also be exposed to temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit without experiencing damage. Beyond that, epoxy is resistant to ultraviolet rays. For those who have kitchens that rely on natural sunlight, this is a great advantage since the rays won’t fade the color of your countertops or affect the appearance of the surface.
Simple Cleaning without Chemicals
While a concrete countertop is porous, epoxy counter tops are both non-porous and nontoxic. What that means is that these countertops are much simpler to clean. Liquids cannot seep into the countertops and cause problems. There’s no need to use harsh scrubbing pads or abrasive cleaners. This means you won’t have to deal with the surface getting dull over time. There is also no need for waxes or polishes. All you need to do to clean the countertops is use mild soap on occasion. You can also apply mineral oil, but you need very little of it and need only use it if you wish to.
Better Retention of Color
When you choose countertops of epoxy, any color disruptions or nicks in the surface are easily sanded out. The color will not require any additional refinishing. This is a major advantage from other types of countertops you might be considering. Also, there is less pigment used in epoxy countertops. This leads to a more transparent appearance that can hide up small color irregularities that come from age.
