Your Kitchen will be Transformed with Countertop Refinishing
Why use countertop resurfacing?
Refinishing gives your counters, and your kitchen or bath, new life for a fraction of the cost of replacement. Many older countertops are structurally fine. The very top surface might be damaged, or maybe the color gives your kitchen or bath a dated feel.
- Save cost: Refinishing can saves 70% or more over the cost of replacement.
- Modern look: Using Flint-Stone topcoat, you get the beautiful look of stone.
- No mess: Replacement means ripping out existing countertops, sinks, fixtures, even possible plumbing changes. None of this is required when refinishing.
- Fast: Refinishing is done in one day. Replacement can take weeks to measure and order.
- No maintenance: Refinished counters don’t require yearly messy sealing like granite.

How the process works including countertop repair
Cabinets, backsplash, fixtures and the floor need to be covered. Grease, oil and dirt should be cleaned with specialized cleaners. Scratches and chips can be fixed with compounds specifically formulated for this purpose. Countertop repair can be tricky. It’s best left to an expert if you want the finished surface to look nice and smooth. The surface is then prepped to ensure proper adhesion. At least 3 coats of polyurethane coating should be applied, resulting in a durable, like-new surface.
There are several color options to go with your existing decor. Our Flint-Stone multi-colored coating has flecks in it that gives the sought after look of stone without the cost. Ask your refinisher for swatches of actual Flint-Stone coatings for your counter top resurfacing job.
