Size limitations and seams in engineered stone countertops E-mail
Just like any other countertop material, engineered stone countertops also have size limitations and seams.

Seams in engineered stone countertops

Engineered stone countertops have seems that are visible and noticeable to the naked eye. The seams of your kitchen countertop are filled with colored resin to match and complement the color of your engineered stone countertop. Seams are necessary for countertop pieces that measures eight to 10 feet in length.

The seams of engineered stone countertops usually measure one-sixteenth to one-eighth of an inch. They are slightly visible because of the consistent patterns of engineered stone. However, the seams are not that obvious in engineered stone countertops that come in darker shades, colors, and patterns. So if you do not want the seems to be visible, choose an engineered stone countertop with a dark color and pattern.

Engineered stone countertops have size limitations of 118 to 120 inches in length, 52 to 56 inches in width, and to 1 inches in thickness. For durability, contractors recommend the use of engineered countertops with a thickness of 1 ¼ inches.
