We proudly sell postform countertops from VT, the number one postformed laminate countertop manufacturer in North America.

And because VT works with the major laminate manufacturers Wilsonart, Formica, Nevamar and Pionite, there are thousands of design possibilities from classic styles to premium laminates that resemble the look and feel of granite, or natural stone.

What is a Postformed Countertop?

Postforming simply means that the laminate is heated and wrapped around curved particleboard to produce a seamless front edge, countertop and backsplash. Get all the benefits of solid surface-handsome looks and no seams to collect dirt and grime-but for much less.

Countertops are also available without a backsplash, allowing further customization with tile, wood, laminate or paint. With the many options available you can get the style you want at an affordable price. For new construction or major remodeling projects, whether you are a design center, builder, contractor or homeowner, we can help create custom pieces to complete a design.

Care & Cleaning...

Everyday Care-

Use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with a mild detergent or household cleaner. To remove stuck-on residue, scrub with a nylon-bristled brush.

Difficult Stains-

Apply a paste of baking soda and water to draw out the stain. Then, blot away with a damp cloth. Don’t rub the stain, as it may set back into the laminate. You may use solvents such as denatured alcohol or nail polish remover on your laminate countertop to remove pen or pencil stains. Use a small amount and repeat until the stain is removed. Rinse the surface thoroughly. Then clean as usual.

For Dusting-

Use a non-oily furniture spray. This may also help hide small scratches.

Protecting your fine laminate countertop-

  • Do not place hot items directly on your laminate countertop.
    • Use a hot pad or trivet to avoid placing hot pans or dishes directly on the laminate surface.
    • Keep lit cigarettes from directly contacting laminate surface.
    • Do not place curling irons or hot rollers directly on the laminate surface.
    • Do not iron or even place a hot iron on the laminate surface.
  • Do not use your laminate countertop as a cutting board.
    • Knives and other sharp utensils could slice or scratch the laminate surface.
  • Do not slide abrasive items across your laminate countertop.
    • Ceramics, earthenware, and other rough-bottomed objects could scratch the laminate surface. Use a placemat or other protective underlay with these items.
    • Do not use scouring pads or steel wool on the laminate surface.
  • Do not drop objects on your laminate countertop.
    • Heavy impact can chip or crack the laminate surface.
  • Do not use cleaners containing acid, alkali or bleach.
    • This includes cleaners made for toilets, tubs, tile, ovens, rust, metal, ceramic cook tops, and lime/mineral deposits. If you’re unsure about a particular cleaning agent, contact the manufacturer to ensure its compatibility with laminate surfaces.
  • Do not allow bottles, rags, or anything else that may have harsh chemicals to contact your laminate countertop. This includes hair dyes, clothing dyes, and food coloring.
