corian - so your expensive countertop is cracked?don\'t panic
Whenever you spend a lot of money on something and let it crash on you, it usually gets you confused. Well, there\'s no reason to be afraid if it\'s a solid surface countertop. A big selling point of solid surface countertops is that they can be repaired if they are scratched, cracked, chipped, burnt or anything else. It can be repaired as long as your countertop is not ground into a pile of powder or paper scraps. Sometimes I see a post on some DIY forums or message boards where people post replies about fixing solid surface countertops. They say how you fix the crack with super glue or some new magic resin, you can simply pour it on the crack and polish it down and fix it down. This is not true at all. In addition to simple scratch removal and some stain removal, no homeowner does a real, legal, intangible, beautiful repair on his own solid surface counter. This will not happen. This is a big myth that can be broken in the blink of an eye. Just ask those who unfortunately accept this suggestion. Of course, maybe the magic potion they pour on the crack fills the crack, and of course, once they grind it off after using the magic potion, when you wipe it with your fingers, the crack no longer feels, but what does it look like? All in all, it\'s terrible. If it doesn\'t look terrible at first, just stick to it and it will. It starts to change the color and usually gets darker. So if you have a crack on the white countertop and you do a diy fix on it, it won\'t be long and it will start to Black. Imagine how proud you will be of your convenient work at that time. Your once beautiful countertop now looks like something you \'ve rescued from some old hotel or somewhere else. YUCK! The advantage is that there are qualified people even if you are not qualified to repair your own countertop.
