In this post we'd like to shed some light on counter-top refinishing
, which some people may not even be aware of. Counter-top refinishing is a process of repairing and restoring an existing kitchen counter
or bathroom vanity to extend its functional life, without replacement. The process involves the application of a very hard and durable acrylic coating to the existing counter. But counter-top refinishing isn't just for counter-tops, it works equally well on bathroom vanities, laminate breakfast bars, and even cultured marble sink vanities.
Most all tile, cultured marble, Corian and other laminate counter-tops can be refinished. We mention Corian because Corian has been a popular countertenor brand that we sell, and has been widely used for a lot of our clients. Counter-top refinishing has been popular for years, but recent technological advances have made counter-top refinishing more durable, affordable and attractive to homeowners. So it becomes a more attractive option over replacing your counter-tops. Counter-top refinishing is almost always more affordable than replacing old and worn counter-tops, and especially custom counter-tops or large counters with curves and unique angles. After crunching some numbers we found that counter-top refinishing will typically save homeowners 30% to 50% over total replacement costs.
Refinishing is a great advantage to the alternative mainly because of the sentence above; refinishing can be up to if not over 50% savings compared to replacement. Equally important is avoiding the demolition mess associated with counter-top replacement and the days waiting for the new counter-top installation. A refinished counter-top can usually be returned to light duty within 24 - 36 hours. With our expert and professionalism you’ll have the kitchen you want in days, not weeks.
A refinished counter-top is durable and can extend the useful life of your counters for 10-15 years with basic care and maintenance. Counter-top finishes are available in dozens of colors and textures to fit almost any decorating plan. Take a look at some of the textures we have to offer and see how we can help to refinish your kitchen counter-tops today. We use only the best materials and procedures to give you a durable and attractive counter-top that you can be proud of for many years to come.
