Can kitchen countertops be refinished?
Kitchen countertops can be refinished and this includes painting them as well. This might seem like a lot of work but we offer options for our clients that meet their budgets with different levels of durability.

The price ranges from $500 up to over $1000, depending on what level of finish you want and are willing to invest in.
How should I care for my refinished product?
When properly cared for and maintained, a refinished countertop can last for several years. The latest finish, like laminate or solid surfaces, is not indestructible.
PLACE A HOTPAD UNDER HOT POTS AND PANS AND USE A CUTTING BOARD. Knife cuts and hot pans put on a refinished surface will harm it just like laminate and solid surface countertops.
NON-ABRASIVE LIQUID CLEANERS OR MILD SOAP AND WATER ARE THE ONLY OPTIONS. After using general purpose cleaners including Mr. Clean®, Fantastik®, or Formula 409®, wipe your refinished surface clean with a damp cloth or non-abrasive sponge.
ABRASIVE CLEANSERS, HARSH ACIDS, AND BLEACH-CONTAINING CLEANERS ARE NOT TO BE USED! These materials can cause premature wear by discoloring or damaging the surface.
DO NOT LEAVE CLEANERS OR CHEMICALS ON THE SURFACE FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME WITHOUT RINSING THEM OFF COMPLETELY.
WE USE A PROFESSIONAL-GRADE SEALANT ON ALL OUR WORK. We offer options for our clients depending on their budgets and desired outcome in terms of durability so we can deliver high quality work at any budget level. Our sealant goes above and beyond.
How long do refinished surfaces last?
Every project is different, as it varies on the use and traffic of the surface that is refinished. The lifespan of a countertop also depends on the cleaning and care routine. We recommend keeping counters clean with soap, water, and an abrasive sponge or cloth to avoid buildup that can lead to staining.

Is resin prone to scratching?
