Recently I had a customer contact me about reusing their existing Corian kitchen counter. They loved their Corian, but wanted new cabinets, they also wanted to reconfigure their kitchen layout a bit. I met with them, saw their current layout, the layout they wanted and came up with a plan. It would require a cut in the counter top and then a field seam. Because of Corian’s properties this was possible, and could be completed with virtually no evidence of the work. I also planned on refinishing the entire counter top. This would remove scratches, scuffs and surface staining.
Everything went smoothly. Our team removed the counters and stored them in the homeowners garage while the cabinet guys did their work. In a couple weeks we came back, made the cut, did the seam, installed the counter tops on the new cabinets and refinished the Corian. For a fraction of the cost of a new counter my customer had an updated kitchen and a Corian counter top that looked as good as it did the day it was installed.
