What is the difference between a Solidity floor and an epoxy or poured resin floor?

These are just different methods of producing a seamless, waterproof floor.  They are aesthetically very similar when first installed but after time the differences will become apparent.

A Solidity floor is made using 12mm thick Corian or HI-MACS so it is strong, crack resistant and very tolerant of structural movement.  It therefore works well in houses with wooden floors as it can move with the building.  The 12mm thickness means that if the floor is scratched or chipped it can be re-polished, or if damage is deep, a new section can be inserted discretely.

In comparison, an epoxy coated floor has a thin layer of epoxy resin which is less impact resistant and more brittle that Corian or HI-MACS.  Most suppliers of resin or epoxy floors will only pour the resin and will not guarantee your floor staying crack free if there is a problem with the substrate.

Solidity's 15 year warranty covers the installation of both the substrate and the HI-MACS or Corian finish to give you peace of mind.

For more information about Solidity's wet flooring options take a look at wetrooms floors and bespoke shower trays.

I’ve had a cheaper quote will you price match?

Unlikely. We are an honest company and believe that supplying top quality products with exceptional customer service is worth paying for. At Solidity we work to very high standards, we make every effort to ensure our customers love the work we do and take pride in every job. If the work is not good enough for our MD’s house it does not leave the workshop. We deliver excellent value and our customers come back time and again.

Are you in Corian’s Quality Network or HI-MACS’s Quality Club?

Yes, we are members of both.

Is it true that Corian, HI-MACS & Krion only guarantee their material and not the manufacture and installation?

Yes, but Solidity are unique among Solid Surface fabricators in the UK because our warranty covers the material, manufacture and installation therefore filling the gap left by the material manufacturers.

How far will you travel from your base in Marlow (half way between Oxford and London)?

Routinely we travel up to Birmingham & Nottingham, down to Kent & Devon and across to Essex & Cardiff but we do most of our work in London. We can do jobs further afield but only very interesting or large ones; all of our site fitters have families and we like to get them home for supper as often as possible.

I’m a potential customer but I am not in the trade, will you work directly for me?

Yes we will but quite often we will recommend that you go and use one of our dealers if your design is not complete. We choose our dealers very carefully and they are all capable of producing superb designs according to your brief. If your design requires extensive 3D modelling then we will need to work directly with you.

What are your lead times?

Often we turn round small jobs for people we know within a week, 2 weeks to make a custom sized white shower tray and 3-4 weeks notice for a typical kitchen or wetroom floor. More complicated jobs, like art sculptures or custom sized baths, need longer. Whatever you need, give us a call and we’ll let you know the current lead time. In the run up to Christmas we are exceptionally busy and lead times will be longer than normal.

How do I get a quote?

Please email sales@solidity.co.uk with a description or photos and dimensions, or ideally a drawing and we will do our very best to send you a firm price within 24 hours. 

How long from template to fit?

Typically we turn jobs round in 5-7 working days but for larger projects it may be as long as 10 working days. We will give you a firm commitment on the turnround time when you place your order so you can plan your follow on trades efficiently.

How do I place an order?

Please email sales@solidity.co.uk with your quote number, invoice address, site address and site contact details then we will send you a 50% deposit invoice. Once the job is completed we will send you the invoice for the balance.
