There are a number of products on the market that may appear to be the same, but in reality they are quite different. Products referred to as “solid-surface” or “composite” may be constructed using cultured marble, limestone or something similar. There may also be hollow areas in the product, and frequently a surface coating is applied. Some of these products may even be less expensive, but they are not the same as the ESS products in the Boutique Collection.
