Sink Materials

A composite sink is typically made from quartz or granite compounds mixed with acrylic resins.

Solid surface sinks are made from solid synthetic sheets formed by mixing a mineral compound with polyester and/or acrylic resins.

Cast iron sinks are formed by pouring molten iron into a cast (hence the name "cast iron") that forms the sink's shape.

Stainless steel is the most popular and typically the least expensive sink option.
