Corian is the brand name for a stain-resistant solid surfacing material manufactured by DuPont. This non-porous material is ideal for kitchen countertops because it is easy to clean and has stain resistant qualities. Common uses include kitchen countertops, backsplashes, windowsills and bathroom vanity tops. Most countertop applications include a backsplash that attaches to the wall. Removal of the backsplash is possible without disturbing the countertops.
Cut the caulking in the joints where the backsplash meets the countertops, walls and corners of adjacent splashes.
Locate and mark the wall studs behind the backsplash using a stud finder and pencil. Prying the backsplash from these points reduces damage to the existing wall.
Insert the flat pry bar between the top edge of the backsplash and wall on the stud locations nearest the end of the splash. Gently apply pressure with the pry bar to loosen the backsplash from the wall. Continue this step for the remaining stud locations until the backsplash is loose.
Remove the backsplash from the countertop and set aside. Follow these steps for any remaining backsplashes.
