Fabricator Profile: SolidTops Reinforces Countertops

Posted on 05 May 2016 by cradmin

granite-install-11SolidTops is a leading countertop fabricator in Easton, Md., that has developed an innovate method for reinforcing finished countertops to reduce the risk of breakage. Many types of countertops, including natural stone, quartz and solid surface, can break during transit or well after installation when the substrate shifts over time, and the best part about this method is that it is simple, cost effective and low tech.

Evan Kruger, president of SolidTops, explains that the company has a technician affix a laminate backer sheet to the underside of each cutout with a contact adhesive. Clear backer sheets are normally used to balance the backside of laminate panels, and it adheres quickly and easily to nearly all smooth, dry surfaces with spray adhesive. Once applied, the backer sheet becomes a permanent part of the countertop, and it greatly increases its durability.

Kruger also says he uses this method to replace rodding sink cutouts, and he estimates it has saved him hundreds of hours in transport preparation every year.

SolidTops, LLC, was founded by Kruger more than 20 years ago, and he currently employs about 40 countertop specialists. The company works with a full range of surfaces, including granite, quartz, marble, solid surface, tile and other materials.
