    Corion countertop install-gctid401719

    Anyone in the Orillia, Lake Simcoe area that knows any contractors/suppliers that could replace the countertops and table of our 3288 with corion or granite ?

    If you have a Costco in your area try them at least for a quote. Home Depot won't touch them but almost any cabinet supply can help you. There is no warranty on marine use since they say that the boat flexes. Costco was the best price for us and you don't have to worry about customer satisfaction with them.

      Too bad you aren't closer to the Seattle area. I am a Corian distributor and could get you whatever you need. I'd suggest a local cabinet shop as well.

          Depends largely of the square footage, complexity and the material you chose. Get some dimensions for me and I can let ya know.

                Not sure of the geography in your area, but they have 3 locations in Washington state... Use store locator and your zip to find the closest.

                They have done work in my 3888 - guaranteed just like a home. Minimal "interruption" too... Appointment for measurements/template-making (an hour or so), then another appointment for installation (about 3 hours for me) - time in between for fabrication was about a week.

                  Careful there. Dupont will not cover Corian under a warranty like they will in a home. It's purely on the installer at that point. It works well, but has to float a lot more in a boat than in a home and the seams are prone to cracking as well as the relieved undersides.

                  Neat stuff though.

                    I'd like a corian countertop. I want to switch the sink and stove to opposite sides to allow the microwave door to open when using the stove.

                      Maybe a superior product to Corian? I don't know...

                        Dupont's initial patent has expired on the product and there are lots of very similar products out there, but the bottom line is they are all acrylic at heart and somewhat fragile. To keep the weight down, Corian is usually back relieved on a CNC router to yield a .25" thickness wherever possible, but it still gets heavy. Corian works out to about 5 pounds a square foot (as opposed to 25-30# for granite).

                        It's neat stuff and most will install it on a boat, you just don't get the 15 year warranty. Same durability though.

                          Do quartz... going to be heavy but it looks the best

                          Corian is overpriced plastic, IMHO. We had a countertop made several years ago, the backsplash had to do a 90 around the wet wall in the bathroom... it cost a fortune and it never impressed.

                            Dupont makes another product called Zodiaq. It's beautiful stuff. You'll be hard pressed to tell it from granite / stone.
