- Q.Can solid surfacing be used
for flooring in a bathroom?
A.Associate editor Martin
Holladay responds: Some solid-surfacing
fabricators have used the material for flooring, in
spite of the fact that most manufacturers,
including DuPont, the manufacturer of Corian, will
not provide a warranty for flooring
Besides the high cost, one disadvantage of using
solid surfacing for flooring is its surface
texture. Solid surfacing is so smooth that
it’s slippery when wet. But if the
material is cut into 12x12-inch tiles, installed
with grout lines, it will be somewhat less slippery
than a seamless application.
