Corian counter tops

Hello gang! I have another question: Has anyone had to replace their sink covers of their counter tops? When I purchased my MH last year the previous owner said he misplaced them. What would be the best way to go about the search? Looking for the same exact ones or trying to get a dealer to reman some new ones? It may be a problem to color match also. Thanks for the replies in advance.

Take the rig to your local Corian dealer for measuring and color identification. They can make them for you..... Exact match, exact everything.

Excellent idea, especially if you have an older pattern of Corian that isn't available any more.

If you want to hold out for an exact match, be aware when doing your search that there are brands of solid surface countertop material other than Corian.

Not the same problem but related. Hope it's OK to add.
When we bought or 03 Bounder the stove top covers had a huge sag in them. The previous owners must have lit the oven and not removed the covers. Dealer said he couldn't fix it so I decided to give it a try myself. Placed the cover in our larger home oven sagging side up set oven at 250 deg. and watched through glass oven door. didn't take long for the cover to soften and as soon as that started I took the cover out and placed upside down on a flat solid surface. added weight and it flattened right out. let it cool and it was as good as new. Hope this helps someone else with this problem.
I like the cutting board solution to your problem. Think it would look good and serve a duel purpose as well. Let us know what you decide and how everything comes out.

You don't say how old the moho is, but if it's more than a few years old, you probably won't find the same Corian to match. The cutting board idea is a good one! Good luck.

Rather than have a poor match use a contrasting or complimenting solid color for the sink inserts. Same would apply for the stove covers.

X2 on this one. A contrasting color would probably work out great.

I'd have to echo the cutting board idea. Our MH came the same way, without matching corian sink cover. I got a large cutting board from Walmart and cut it to size with a table saw. I think it was a Paula Dean baking board. Pretty cool, because it had useful kitchen measurements and other info lazer engraved in the surface. For the corners, I went through the cabinets trying different dishes, saucers and cups until I found one that matched the curves on the counter top. I used the dish as a template to mark the corners, then cut them off off with a jig saw and finished everything with a belt sander, then orbital sander. The board is a little thicker than the inset from counter top to sink, but it's fine. I only did a single cover for the wide side. It came out real nice. I'll rub it with a little cooking oil from time to time to darken the wood. I may end up doing it again with one of those white nylon cutting boards since they're closer in thickness to the inset.
