I have found that the price difference is probably not a big enough factor to sway you either way.
There are pros and cons either way.
Solid top replacement means that the old tops need to be removed, and this can be messy, and
This is my preferred choice. I'm not much for hiding the old, I'd rather replace, than cover.
The overlay type of tops will cut down on mess and hassle, maybe even a little on cost, but there is a noticeable seam on the front edge, where they wrap the material over the front edge. Edge profiles are limited because of the thickness of the material. The structural part is what scares me, because if your existing tops are loose, or not well installed, there could be issues down the road with sagging or even stress fractures. I've hear success stories with overlay type tops, so it's really a matter of choice, budget, and convenience. Please report back with what you end up choosing, and maybe even a before and after photo! I'd love to also hear about your experience with this! Good Luck!
I would certainly at least have someone check out the existing installation for structural integrity, as Imagery said.
