Announcing the New Solid Surface Alliance Forum

We finially have the Forum up for the Solid Surface Alliance. Unregistered guests can browse all but one of the catagories, but if you want to ask a question or comment, you need to register. Registeration is easy, fill out the usual form, the system will email you with a link to activate your account, then just log in as usual.

The forum is brand new, so there won’t be much content until the membership grows, so add a question or comment if you visit to help get the conversations going. New forums are tough to start, people look around, see little going on, and leave. But, with the volumne of questions we get from the public, this forum will save lots of time and make the answers available for all interested internet viewers to find.

There is one section off limits to all but invited members, that is the Scientific Section which is dedicated for those who are working on the issues. There they can spreak freely, bounce ideas off each other, and not worry about info getting picked up and repeated elsewhere before the proper time.

Please contact us if you have any problems signing up or logging on. Remember you MUST click on the link in the email that is sent to you to activate your account. You might have to scroll down one page when you open the email to find the activation link.

We get emails all the time asking about some of the issues that plague some granites types. In the past, I have always helped the people privately where I could. Now the volume is increasing so why not create a page for this purpose?

If you have had a bad experience with either the material or the fabricator, please post a comment with as much detail as you feel is releveant. I might ask for more detail, perhaps privately if it might impact the fabricator’s or slab seller’s business. There are websites for “rip off reports”, I’d prefer to leave them to that business and let me simply answer any technical questions or provide info on the trade practices that are germane to the problem.

Please stick to the facts, the readers will draw their own conclusions on whether you were fairly treated.
