Why You Should Choose Granite Countertops vs. Corian Countertops.

What Are They?

First, let’s define what we’re talking about.  These are two totally different materials:

  1. Corian:  This is what is called a solid surface counter material.  It is a man-made product composed of 33% binding resins and 66% minerals.
  2. Granite:  This is granite quarried directly from the earth, sliced into slabs, honed, and polished.  Nothing is added, nothing removed.


Yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But if you’re trying to match apples with apples, nothing can reach the luster and depth of real granite.

Solid surface materials just cannot match the deep, 3D “depth” that slab granite has.

Winner: Granite

Resale Value:  Return on Investment

Granite has a high return on your investment when it comes time to sell your house. Note that slab granite—as opposed to modular or tile granite—will give back the highest amount. But Corian is no slouch, either. Of all man-made solid surface countertop materials, Corian is the one with the greatest consumer name-brand recognition.

Winner: Granite
