Anytime you spend a lot of money on something only to have it break down on you, it usually will send you into a tizzy. Well if it is a solid surface counter top then there is no reason to freak out. One of the big selling points for solid surface counter tops is the fact that they can be repaired if they are scratched, cracked, chipped, burnt or anything else. As long as your counter top has not been ground into a pile of powder or confetti, it can be repaired.
Now we have actually seen forums or other do-it-yourself repair things saying how you can fix a crack with super glue or some new fantastic resin that you can simply pour on the crack and then sand it down and then it's fixed. Well, coming from the professionals, that simply isn’t true.
Other than simple scratch removal and some stain removal, there is no such thing as a homeowner doing a real, legitimate, invisible, beautiful repair on their own solid surface counter top. It's just not going to happen. That is one big myth that can be busted in the blink of an eye. Just ask anyone who has been unfortunate enough to take this advice. Most of the time when sites try to sell a powerful resin or liquid to fill into the crack then sand it down, it feels as though it’s filled but looks unprofessional. Not only that but numerous times have the “sealant” been raised out after 6 months of being used.
In the event that it doesn't look awful at first, just hold on, it will. It will start to change colors, usually it goes darker. Your once beautiful counter tops now look like something that you salvaged from some old hotel or something. The good thing is, even if you are not qualified to repair your own counter top, we are.
