Common FAQs

WHAT IS COUNTERTOP RESURFACING?

Countertop resurfacing is the process of applying new layers of color and material over the top of your existing countertop. These new layers are sprayed using specialized equipment and materials designed for this application. Countertop resurfacing will renew the look and extend the life of old and worn Formica, tile or stone countertops.

WHAT COLORS OR PATTERNS CAN BE DONE?

The product used for resurfacing a countertop can be mixed to any color you want. Visit any paint retailer and pick out a color and we will have our product mixed to the color.

If you are looking for the appearance of “stone” then we use a product called multi-spec which is applied over the top of your chosen color to create a speckled appearance very similar to many quartz countertops. The choices are virtually limitless!

HOW LONG WILL THE NEW SURFACE LAST?

The final product is very durable. It is similar to the finish on a car. The top layer is a very strong clear coat to protect and seal the underlying layers of color.

Just about the only thing that can damage it is to put a hot pan right off the stove onto the surface. It can burn!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COUNTERTOP RESURFACING?

The primary benefit is cost savings. Most kitchen countertops can be resurfaced for around $600 complete. This is a fraction of the cost to replace.

There are also no plumbing costs to remove and replace the sink and fixtures, no demolition cost and no need to tear out and replace the existing backsplash. In fact, we can often resurface the backsplash to match the new countertop!

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

Countertop resurfacing is priced per square foot. The first 10 square feet cost $250 and then $10 for each additional square foot after that.

Your basic 50 square foot kitchen countertop can be completed for about $650 dollars! And this will be your TOTAL cost for a new looking countertop.

HOW LONG WILL THE JOB TAKE?

The vast majority of kitchens can be completed in 1 day. We will return on the second day to remove all the protective plastic and masking. This will only take about an hour or so. The counters can be used immediately after we finish clean up. No long inconvenient delays and messes.
