Kitchen counters worn out? Refinishing saves money and time.

March 16, 2020

Kitchens used to be just for cooking. Not anymore! Over the last decade or so, they've transformed into a place for friends and family to congregate. Many agree the kitchen is the heart of the home. It's often the busiest!

Kitchen counters have to withstand a lot. Countertop surfaces eventually show wear and tear with damage, including cracks, stains, and cutting board marks. If your kitchen counters have seen better days, our company offers solutions to fit your budget.

We're New Finish Tub and Counter located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Our kitchen counter refinishingservices include: 

  • tile countertops
  • laminate countertops
  • repairing cracks, chips, and even rust.

Even if your counters are in good shape, they still may need a fresh update. Styles are changing all the time, so you can follow the latest trends without tearing out all of your counters.

If you'll be selling your home now or in the future, the first place most people look at is the kitchen. The aesthetics can make a big difference. Sometimes the style of a kitchen can make or break a sale. The last thing you want to do is put a bunch of money into something you're selling. Our website, New Finish Tub and Counter, has a photo gallery of finished projects that may give you some inspiration.

Refinishing vs. replacing

So let's compare the differences between refinishing your kitchen counters and replacing them. There are a few things to consider:

  • Cost
  • Kitchen downtime
  • Should I hire someone?
  • Which one is more eco-friendly?

Cost: When you compare the price of refinishing versus replacing, refinishing is by far less expensive. Homeowners can save between 30% and 70% by refinishing.

Kitchen downtime: Having your kitchen out of commission is no one's idea of fun. Downtime for replacing can take days or even weeks. Most of our work takes only two days, and they'll be ready for light use by the third day. The shorter the job, the better, right?

Do I need a professional? Some homeowners try to tackle this job on their own. However, without the proper experience, equipment, and knowledge, it may turn into a never-ending project with questionable results. Let us tackle it for you, and we'll even clean up the mess!

Refinishing is eco-friendly. In today's eco-conscious world, refinishing your kitchen counters as opposed to using new materials makes a big difference. Tearing out old countertops and replacing with new makes a considerable pile of waste. And where does all of the waste go? The landfill. Kitchen counter refinishing is an eco-friendly way to update your home and avoid wasteful practices.
