Countertops
Whether it's for your kitchen, bathroom or newly renovated laundry room, Multi-Trade Building Services can provide you with a beautiful new countertop.

Depending on your needs, budget and style, there are many different types of counters to choose from.


Laminate:  Laminate countertops are fabricated by gluing a thin layer of 1/16- or 1/32-inch plastic to particleboard.  BenefitsMany designs now closely imitate the look of wood and stone, about 2/3 the price of granite or quartz, simple to maintain and clean.  Disadvantages: easily scorched by hot objects, can easily by damaged by sharp object


Solid Surface: Commonly known by its brand name of Corian, it is a man-made and manufactured by mixing acrylic or polyester resin with powdered bauxite filler and pigments. Benefits: non-porous, strong and resists impact better than laminate, scratches can be sanded out. Disadvantages: vulnerable to scratches and easily discoloured by heat.

Granite: a naturally occuring igneous rock.  It is a one of a kind, natural surface that has an almost luminous look. Benefits: granite does not depreciate in value and actually adds value to your home, formed by heat and pressure so it can take the heat of a pan, easy to clean with warm water and detergent. Disadvantages: must be sealed yearly to remain water impermeable, can crack if hit with a hard object like a meat cleaver, doesn’t produce a uniform look because each slab of granite is different

Quartz: manufactured from 95% crushed quartz and 5% polymers.   Benefits:  uniformity of colour and design, no sealing or polishing needed, maintenance free, resistant to stains, scratches and heat. Disadvantages:  doesn’t have the look of natural stone, long term exposure to sunlight can cause discolouration, ongoing exposure to heat can damage the counter, although they add value to a home over laminate counters, the value is less than that of a granite counter
