Kitchen remodels have always been at the top of the list of home remodels, and now more and more homeowners are making this their 2021 remodeling priority. Whether remodeling to enjoy personally as people are spending more time at home, or increasing equity before putting their house on the market, a kitchen remodel remains top of mind for many homeowners. With that, great refinishers know best how to mesh those unique desires with available products and one available product that should be on every refinisher's list for kitchen remodels is Flint-Stone® countertop coating.

The Benefits of Flint-Stone Countertop Coating

As homeowners are spending more time and money upgrading their kitchen and changing kitchen cabinets and/or tile colors, refinishers are able to take it one step further and sell matching and complimentary countertop upgrades using Flint-Stone.

Flint-Stone is a faux-granite countertop coating that can be applied directly onto existing countertops that allow homeowners to enjoy the look of natural stone without the drawbacks of investing in a porous material. This is a great option for homeowners looking to emulate the natural stone trend, as this coating also comes in 23 different colors. It costs a fraction of the price of a full remodel and installing brand new stone countertops.

So what are some of the other benefits of Flint-Stone?

1. Well, first, money. Flint-stone countertops cut the costs of refinishing by 70%, sometimes even more, over the cost of a full replacement. These are excellent solutions that can give homeowners the look of a fresh new countertop but without the huge end bill.

2. It's also a more time-efficient solution. Rather than completely demoing their kitchen, NAPCO’s Kitchen Renew Countertop Coating is a clear coating that when applied over Flint-Stone, can have countertops complete in just 1-day. At most, when using Polyglass 320 Low VOC Clear Coating, the completion of a Flint-Stone coating countertop will be two days. In addition, Kitchen Renew clear coating was formulated to specifically work with Flint-Stone wet-on-wet and aids in laying down and smoothing out the Flint-Stone flakes. This assures a smooth application and professional finish. Gone are the days of having to get takeout for weeks during a full kitchen remodel!

3. Flint-Stone countertop coatings are also especially versatile. Because Flint-Stone has so many color options and color combinations, they are beneficial for homeoweners who may like to change décor often. With more than one solid option to work with as a base, paired with a refinishers professional spray skills, Flint-Stone can really look like a one-of-a-kind coating with each application.
