About Us

Reid Erekson began his experience in countertops by fabricating marble and granite at a reputable Salt Lake City, Utah company in the mid-1970s.  Over the course of his employment, he was offered a position with a company that would be working with marble, granite, and a recent offering to the world of countertops called Corian®.  At the time, this new and unique acrylic product was being used in the Salt Lake Valley by only a few contractors, who were fabricating and installing it in capacities far below its amazing potential.

Over time, Reid began to work almost exclusively with Corian ® and the possibilities for this new product began to unfold.  He was soon fabricating and installing Corian ® not only as kitchen countertops or bathroom vanities, but also in a variety of new applications, such as showers and tub surrounds, windowsills and trim, shelves and tables, and a variety of unique commercial applications.  It was part of Reid’s basic nature to be a perfectionist, and the quality of his workmanship led to much word-of-mouth advertising as the popularity of the product increased.  Inevitably, the success of Corian soon led to many viable competitors – among them recognized brands such as LG Hi-Macs ®, LivingStone ®, Staron ®, Gibraltar ®, and Avonite ®.  Collectively, these products came to be known as “solid surface” materials.

In 1999, Reid formed Erekson Encounters with a desire to specialize in high-end, custom countertops and showers for individual residences.  From the beginning, it has been part of the company’s mission to provide a pleasant and hassle-free remodel experience.  This includes a goal to achieve 1-day start-to-finish installs for most kitchen and bathroom countertops, and a commitment to install within 5 days from the date of templating a job.  These benefits, plus the outstanding nature of the finished product, have resulted in satisfied Erekson Encounters customers in every neighborhood along the Wasatch Front, from Ogden to Provo, and Park City to Grantsville.
