Swanstone is a brand name solid surfacing material used mainly in kitchens, shower stalls, utility rooms and bathrooms. Swanstone is manufactured from polymers and provides a tough surface, which is resistant to chemicals, heat and impact damage. Swanstone is an eco-friendly option because it is made to last longer than comparable materials and has no negative impact on soil or water.

Cutting Swanstone

Step 1

Measure the length and width to fit Swanstone to countertops, shower stalls and vanities with a tape measure or make a paper template with heavyweight paper. Place the paper over the area to make a template and hold it in place with masking tape. Cut along the edges with a utility knife.

Step 2

Mark the measurements directly on the back of the Swanstone or lay the template on the Swanstone and trace around it with a pencil.

Step 3

Use a straight edge to extend the measurement marks across the piece of Swanstone.

Step 4

Place the Swanstone between two sawhorses with the measurement lines facing upward.

Step 5

Equip a circular saw with a 60-tooth carbide blade, which will provide a smooth cut. Blade-tooth size refers to the number of cutting ridges on a saw blade. The more cutting ridges or teeth on a saw blade, the smoother and sharper the cut.

Step 6

Follow the scribed cutting line but do not push the circular saw forcefully. Allow the saw to pull through the Swanstone.
