30+ Years in the Industry


Noel Houze, Owner and Founder of Preferred Surfaces started his career as a general contractor — he never envisioned owning a successful multi-million dollar business. Noel’s business journey began when he was asked to build a Corian solid surface top — this job started a flurry of requests for high-quality surfaces. In 1984, Noel made the decision to shift the focus of his business to solid surface countertop fabrication — Preferred Surfaces was born.

"Our team will do whatever it takes to make sure our customers are satisfied with their countertops."

The Preferred Surfaces Distinction

Over time, Preferred Surfaces evolved, expanding their capabilities, physical location and work force. Noel invested in state-of-the art CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines, allowing Preferred Services to bring quartz fabrication in-house, in addition to increasing efficiency.

Noel’s employees were now able to take on a higher volume of work and put less hours into each job — all while exceeding quality expectations.

Unique Edges & Finishes

Many solid surface fabricators try to reduce costs by using the smallest surface area possible — this creates unsightly seams and irregularities in the surface. We focus on creating seams that are almost undetectable, ensuring that grain and patterns align perfectly. Our high-tech equipment gives our customers a variety of choices that competitors aren’t able to offer, such as unique edges and finishes.
