Com­pos­ite sink is heavy duty and af­ford­able

Times Colonist - - Homes - ED DEL GRANDE

Dear Ed: I am planning to re­place my kitchen coun­ter­tops, sink and faucet. While search­ing for a heavy-duty type sink, I keep hear­ing about com­pos­ite kitchen sinks. Can you please give me some your tips about com­pos­ite kitchen sinks?

Al, Ken­tucky If you’re look­ing for a heavy­duty kitchen sink that of­fers a lot of bang for the buck, a com­pos­ite kitchen sink can fill the bill. Speak­ing of bangs, be­cause of strong ma­te­ri­als used to make com­pos­ite sinks, they also tend to be chip and scratch-re­sis­tant, even if you’re in the habit of bang­ing your sink with heavy pots and pans from time to time.

Com­pos­ite sinks are made with a special mix­ture of ma­te­ri­als and resins and come in a va­ri­ety of beau­ti­ful colours that are part of the ac­tual ma­te­rial makeup.

Fi­nally, these sinks usu­ally have an at­trac­tive matte fin­ish, are heat re­sis­tant and easy to main­tain. Just wash daily with soapy wa­ter along with a good rinse/wipe, and you can keep your new and af­ford­able com­pos­ite kitchen sink look­ing like a mil­lion bucks.

If you’re look­ing for a heavy-duty kitchen sink that of­fers a lot of bang for the buck, a com­pos­ite kitchen sink is your best bet.
