Any experience with Trespa countertops?

Posted by fredanj (My Page) on

After seriously considering soapstone, I've decided to look at other countertop options. The Houzz photos of Trespa, a labtop type counter, are very appealing to my modern sensibility.

I'm going to obtain a sample, but I wonder if anyone here has any experience in real life with the Trespa material used as a counter. It's a phenolic resin, which is supposed to be extremely durable.

I've searched GW without finding any information about this product.
Thanks in advance for any help.


I've tried to post a link to a Houzz photo below:

I don't have it, but I looked into it. I belive it runs about $35-40 per square foot. It is more comparable in material to Richlite and Paperstone. From what I have heard, it might not scratch as easy as soapstone, but I don't think it is as easy to get the scratches out.
