Of all the different options for countertops out on the market, it can be hard to choose just one. Homeowners are looking to get the biggest bang out of their buck when they use your contracting services, so it is crucial that you offer products with plenty of benefits.

One countertop material that has been around for a while is laminate. Here are some top benefits of using this material for any home project, and why you should keep some in your stockroom!

  1. Durable
    When properly maintained, laminate countertops can last anywhere between 10 to 20 years. This means that laminate is a durable material and it can hold up to anything that comes its way — meaning your homeowners won’t have to worry about having to make costly replacements every few years or so.
  2. Low maintenance
    No homeowner wants to spend all their time scrubbing tiles and/or having to purchase a special cleaner for their countertops. All these frustrations are quelled by using laminate as it is incredibly easy to maintain and clean. There is no pesky grout that needs to be cleaned, nor is there a need to buy special cleaner, all you’ll need is a multi-purpose cleaner, hot water, and a sponge! Plus, these countertops don’t need to be sealed, which is one less thing for the homeowner to worry about.
  3. Repels stains
    There’s no need to worry about knocking a glass of wine or juice over on the laminate. Its surface is not that porous, so it is hard for a liquid to penetrate. All this without a sealer — what more could someone want?
  4. Customizable
    Laminate countertops are as versatile as can be. There are plenty of finishes, colors, and patterns to choose from that will compliment any interior decor. Homeowners can even splurge for matching countertop backsplashes as well!

As always, to ensure you have the best product available to offer your customers, you will want to work with a qualified laminate countertop distributor. If you are interested in learning more, check out our SQUAD technology online for a quote for what you are looking for!
