Monarch Solid Surface Designs

Please email your testimonial. Thank you!



Our most recent tesimonials:

We couldn't be more thrilled with the Quartz countertop in our newly remodeled master bath. It is absolutely beautiful. The fit is perfect. Jodi and her team were extremely helpful with other choices in the bathroom as well (vanity, sink, floor tile and shower tile). All of the choices came together perfectly. I will certainly return for any other remodel we need to do ... great little mom and pop shop which also makes you feel good to do business with. The price was fair, the product and installation was excellent!


I couldn't be more pleased with the product and the work performed by Monarch.

Jodi has a very nice selection of products in her showroom and examples of all of the edging treatments. She is extremely knowledgable and can tell you the pros and cons of various different surfaces. She is not like a salesperson, more like an expert consultant. This made it easy to pick exactly the right material and edging for my large custom bathroom vanity. The edging work is lovely and the top is a perfect fit. The installer did a great job and managed to get the top into a tight corner without scratching walls or the custom cabinetry.

Amazingly, Jodi was able to keep track of lots of different customers all at the same time. I went to her showroom during the pre-Christmas rush and, after my visit, was trying to decide between two different materials. Since she was tracking all her customers so closely she discovered that the material I was leaning towards was going to be in extremely short supply due to some very large purchases by big developers. She called to let me know that and I was able to secure a piece that was right for my job. I really appreciated the heads up and would have been disappointed if I couldn't have gotten the material I wanted. Mine was a small job yet I got fantastic service. I would definitely use Monarch again.

Just wanted you to know how pleased we are with our new silestone vanity top and how much we appreciate your assistance. You were incredibly patient with us as we had difficulty visualizing the finished edge for our bathroom counter. You gave us options and showed us samples of what would work for our bathroom. You understood my anxiety and gave us the best assurance by sending Ken to do the job.

We would definitely recommend Monarch Solid Surface Designs for their knowledge, professionalism, and workmanship. You and Ken make a great team with best results!

Thank-you for providing a cost effective solution to my bathroom counter needs. J Jodi was so helpful, providing great suggestions and the installation was a breeze!!

Thank-you so much,


Thanks Ken & Jodi for a beautiful Silestone counter top. Many elements to a complete kitchen remodel & the counter top is a major component. Jodi spent a lot of time going over the details of bullnose & ogee edging. Thank you for hanging in there with us as it seemed like we were never going to get there, but Jodi stayed in contact with us assuring us one day it will all come together. Thanks to Ken for the work area walk through including transition to your new location. BTW- we had to have Ken come out & trim out some undercounter plywood underlayment, but otherwise everything worked out as planned. Our kitchen has the "wow effect" thanks to Ken & Jodi!

After much research we chose Monarch Solid Surface Designs to install Corian in our kitchen. Monarch happens to be located two blocks from our house, so we were in their showroom a great deal of time during our decision process while deciding to go with granite or quartz or Corian…

The stone products are very beautiful, so the decision was very difficult for us. We had installed Corian in a previous home and loved the fully integrated sink, coved backsplash and ease of cleaning and, if chipped or scratched, it's super ease to repair. Stone products don't offer these priority benefits.

Monarch is a mom & pop/husband & wife store offering one-on-one services. Ken & Jodi, the co-owners, were wonderful and super patient with us during our protracted research/decision process. Jodi is very knowledgeable and took us several times to the distributors warehouse to view full slabs of the various color samples we were considering.

There was absolutely no pressure to buy, which is a priority for us... Ken, a very knowledgeable and nice honest man, meet with us several times at our home where we thoroughly went over what we envisioned the finished product would look like and all our options. Ken was very accommodating and put us at ease.

Monarch Solid Surface Designs surpassed our expectations! The installation crew was great in expertise and professionalism and very friendly. They were timely and did a fantastic job at a more that fair price. We highly recommend them!

odi is so friendly & helpful. She worked with me to find ways to save money on the design & materials. I had a small and slightly unusual project request. Thankfully, Ken's skilled team was able to easily create this customized design. Monarch Designs made our little dream come true!!

Ken and Jodi are fantastic to work with.  They are hands on, responsive and very professional.  This is the second Corian project I've done with them and
it couldn't have been a better experience.  I'll call them for the next one!

My husband and i are very happy with the work that ken and jodi did for us. the kitchen counters, bath vanity counters, as well as shower walls were beautifully done. aside from their excellent work, both ken and jodi are very professional and courteous. they would respond to my questions very promptly thru email or phone call. we would highly recommend them.

We walked into Monarch on a cold rainy day only to find that Jodi was at home sick.  However, Brian who was busy working in their shop immediately came into the showroom to show us some of their counter products.  He was so committed to the quality of work that Monarch diligently strives to accomplish that I was determined to follow up with Jodi as soon as she was back at work.  The result is that we have a 7ft by 5ft curved island which is gorgeous.  Ken did the installation with his crew and they too were so proud of their work.  I feel as though we have a beautiful kitchen of which the counter truly is a focus and complements the entire kitchen.  It was a pleasure to work with a high functioning group of employees who were totally there to assist with a design that was aesthetically pleasing, beautifully constructed and in line with my wishes.

"Dear Jodi and Ken,

The counter tops you have made and installed are impeccable.
With a new paint that I did my self to the cabinets, they make the kitchen
look brank new. 
The quality of work is awesome. I could not find a single flaw.
The work was done on time and in a very pleasant environment.
Recommened contruction and plumning people were equally
quality oriented. 
Over all you 2 are the best people I have encountered in my search for
getting the limited changed that we did to our kitchen. It was your
easy going and dedicated attitute that kept bringing us back to you.
Then,  the promise was delivered in time and at the highest possible
quality. All this at the most reasonably priced project. Your company
is a glowing example of how a business should be conducted and operated.
Karen and I thank you from the bottom of our heart and will have
no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and contacts. "

"Monarch was an integral part of a design and fabrication team who made an innovative lobby sculpted out of Corian panels. Monarch went well beyond figuring out technical details and instead took a higher level view of the project, advising the client and the architect how to best sequence the work and source material to make sure the client got what they were looking for out of the final product.

I highly recommend Ken and his team to anyone considering an ambitious project with Corian."

"My experience with Monarch design was wonderful. I love my bathroom counter tops which are Cambrian Quarz (like Silestone). Everyone that comes to my house and inspects the detailed workmanship says that it's a wonderful job. Especially how Ken made the fit around the switch plates. It truly looks wonderful, and I can only highly recommend them. It's a delight to walk into my bathrooms daily."

Thank you, Karin E.
ps, for any references, please call Monarch design, I'd be happy to show it off.


"My remodel project was divided into 3 phases and Jodi and Ken were there for each one: Great Room, Master Bath, and Guest Bath and Laundry. Jodi has the ability to pull out a client's style and help achieve the result pleasing to them...and she's a problem solver! Many thanks to them for their advise and a beautiful installation."



"Their great enthusiasm and careful attention to communication regarding scheduling and/or changes during the process are consistent. Have a detailed knowledge of their products and helpfully point out the value vs. cost component while discussing a wide range of decorating possibilities."

My contractor recommended Monarch as the best - the only company worth working with to get a quartz counter for our kitchen, and I found that to be completely true. They were very easy to work with and very accommodating, and the work was excellent. They special ordered color-matching caulk to put in the seams and it looks great. It was a great value!





Excellent work and price point. Other vendors did not want to work with deep solid color as seams are hard to hide. Monarch welcome the challenge and the end result was perfect.

The overall experience was as good as it gets. My wife and I interviewed three companies that provide solid surface counter top fabrication and installation services. We chose Monarch because we felt comfortable dealing with Jodi and Ken right from the start. The installation was performed quickly, cleanly and professionally without incident. We are very please with the result.

From the time we met Jodi and Ken at the local Remodeling exposition at the Santa Clara Convention Center to the first appointment through the final installation - we have been pleased with their excellent customer service. They are terrific people to work with - very professional.
