Countertops Replacement Problems
RED BRICK CHARCOAL
The counters in our homes are working surfaces that have also become an integral part of the kitchen decor. Countertops generally run from about 20 square feet to 60 square feet so they have become a prominent part when decorating. Because the surface is so hard, there have been few alternative to throwing them out. The problem with ripping it out is that there is generally other damage that takes place when your kitchen becomes a construction zone. The backsplash, cabinets, floor and plumbing are all in danger of being damaged and the cost can quickly climb. Some have tried painting with melamine paint which is oil based, needs to be redone yearly, and usually looks like a poor paint job. There is also the reality of what happens when the old countertop reaches the landfill site, but that will be for another post.
A countertop that has been refaced with our process is usually done in 4 to 6 hours, looks beautiful, is ready to use the next day, fully cured in a month, can be repaired to look like the original if damaged, and costs a fraction of replacing. We presently have about 50 colours and are adding more all the time. The colours samples page on our website will be updated in the next few weeks to show the wide range of new colours.
