Laminate countertops are a popular choice in many kitchens and bathrooms thanks to their durability and relatively low cost. If you already have them installed in your home, what do you do when they start to show their age? You could replace them, but that can be expensive—not to mention a huge hassle.
Luckily, there’s another option: countertop resurfacing.
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t give much thought to your countertops. However, if you’re planning on selling your home or just want to update the look of your kitchen or bathroom, countertops can make a big difference. At Specialized Refinishing Company, we specialize in repairing, restoring, refinishing, and recoloring existing surfaces in kitchens and bathrooms—and we can refinish your laminate countertops to give them new life. Having your countertops professionally refinished is a better solution than trying to do it yourself.
What Is Refinishing?
Refinishing, also known as resurfacing or reglazing, is a process of restoring the surface of an existing countertop by removing the old finish and applying a new one. This can involve repairing any damages or scratches on the surface, smoothing out imperfections, and adding a fresh coat to achieve a brand-new look. The result is a countertop that looks new without having to replace it entirely.
Opting for countertop refinishing not only allows you to achieve the desired look but also strengthens the surface and extends the lifespan of your countertops. The best part is that you can do this without spending a lot of money or dealing with the hassle of a full kitchen renovation.
Can I Laminate Countertops Myself?
The short answer is yes. You can redo your laminate countertops by yourself if you know how to cover laminate countertops. However, there’s more to doing a good job than you might think. If you’re thinking about painting or refinishing your laminate countertops yourself, you might be disappointed with the results. That’s because laminate is a tricky surface to work with. It’s not like painting a wall—if you don’t prep the surface properly or use the right products, the finish will likely peel off soon after you’ve applied it.
That’s why we always recommend having laminate countertops professionally refinished. At Specialized Refinishing Company, we have years of experience working with all types of surfaces—including laminate—so we know how to get the best results. We also use commercial-grade equipment and products that aren’t available to consumers. When you hire us to refinish your laminate countertops, you can rest assured that they’ll look great and last for years to come.
Benefits of Refinishing Your Countertops
There are several benefits of refinishing your laminate countertops instead of replacing them. First of all, it’s much more affordable than a replacement. Second, it’s much less disruptive than getting a new countertop. In most cases, we can have your countertops refinished in just one day without having to remove any cabinets or appliances. Lastly, it’s a great way to update the look of your kitchen or bathroom without having to completely gut the space and start from scratch.
If you plan on selling your home in the future, investing in a full kitchen renovation may not provide an adequate return on investment. However, showing off restored and revitalized surfaces such as resurfaced counters and cabinets instead of outdated ones during open house events could give potential buyers an excellent impression of the space.
We’re also proud to offer eco-friendly solutions for our customers. Rather than contributing to landfill waste by throwing away old countertops and buying new ones, we can update your existing counters and help reduce your environmental footprint.
Our services are highly customizable, allowing you to choose from a variety of real stone finishes and solid colors so that you can get the exact look you want for your countertops.
