Laminate, solid surface, granite and quartz are some of the different types of kitchen countertops sold by Lowe's. These types come in different colors and designs, and samples may be purchased to help a customer with his decision.
Lowe's carries laminate countertops by Formica and Wilsonart. These countertops are generally the least expensive, and they are easy to maintain.
Brands such as LG HI-MACS, allen + roth and Formica supply solid surface countertops for Lowe's. Made of non-porous acrylic, these counters have a seamless appearance but are neither as scratch resistant nor as heat resistant as other types.
Lowe's carries granite countertops from SenSa and allen + roth. Quartz countertops are constructed from nonporous natural stone that is less heat resistant but more stain resistant than granite. Brands carried by Lowe's are allen + roth and Silestone.
