Countertop refinishing is simply the process of repairing and then restoring a countertop either in a kitchen or a bathroom for any of the following reasons: to boost the aesthetic value of the countertop, to extend the overall functional life of the countertop, and to improve home value.
While complete countertop replacement is also technically an option as well, it’s also far more expensive than a simple refinishing.
Laminated countertops are indeed meant to last a long time, but over several years they can begin to get worn down, suffer from stains and scratches, and overall just not look as glossy or as new as they used to. Chipping is also a serious issue with countertops.
We fully understand this here at Hoffman Estates Bathtub Refinishing Co., and we also understand that you may not want to spend the thousands of dollars it would normally cost to have your countertops completely replaced, which is why refinishing is another exception option and one that we offer here. We can easily refinish your countertops in either your kitchen or in your bathroom(s).
What Are The Main Advantages of Refinishing Countertops Over Replacement?
The biggest benefit to having your countertop refinished rather than replaced, by far, is because it is far cheaper than having the entire countertop replaced. But how much cheaper is refinishing exactly? Well, you can expect to probably pay around half for refinishing your countertop in contrast to what you would pay to have it completely replaced.
Another big advantage to refinishing is the fact that it is far more time efficient in order to do, and there is a much smaller mess created by it as well. Whereas countertop installation or replacement can take several days if not weeks, a refinished countertop will probably take two days at the most.
Refinished countertops will also increase the overall durability to the countertop, to the fact that you can expect it to last for at least a decade with proper maintenance and care.
What Is The Basic Process For Refinishing Countertops?
The overall process to countertop refinishing is a rather simple one. First, the countertop will need to have repairs done to any stains, nicks, chips, or scratches. This can be accomplished by sanding down the stain. We work with high quality countertop transformation tips to get this job done for you.
Next, acrylic coating needs to be applied to the existing countertop. Regardless of whether the countertop is made out of cultured marble, tile, Formia, Corian, or whatever else, a durable and strong coating of acrylic coating will need to be applied. After that, we’ll be able to complete the process of refinishing the countertop according to the coloring that you would like. Find out much more details about us.
