• Are there any seams in the new surface?
No. All the old seams will disappear. You will have a solid surface finish. That's just one of the advantages this surface has over new laminate tops.
• Does my sink have to be removed?
No, we do all the resurfacing without removing the sink. This saves you the cost of hiring a plumber and any repairs due to damage that may occur when old plumbing is unhooked.
• How do you change the edging?
We use a machine that cuts a styled edge into the existing countertop. We then resurface the counter and edge, creating a seamless, solid-surface finish. You can have edges that are not available even with brand new counters. This feature really sets off the new surface, giving it a
• How long before I can use the countertop?
You can start using the counter 2 days after we resurface it. We recommend light use for the first week; the finish will continue to harden for approximately 30 days.
• How tough is the new surface?
Your new surface is extremely hard. It's made to wear just like other solid surface finishes. It is highly scratch resistant, although as with any new countertop surface, we cannot guarantee against scratching. It takes about 30 days to reach it's full strength, during
which time extra caution should be taken to prevent scratching.
• If I damage the new surface, can it be repaired?
Yes, and usually it's a simple repair that can be done in a few minutes.
• What do you do with the backsplash?
We can resurface your backsplash. If you have a standard 4" backsplash
the cost is included with normal countertop resurfacing. If you have a backsplash that goes all the way to the bottom of the wall cabinets this can be resurfaced as well, usually adding slightly to the cost. You may also choose only to resurface the countertop surface.
• What if I set something hot on the surface?
After fully cured, this surface is very heat resistant. However, as with most surfaces, repeated exposure to very high heat is not recommended since it can damage the layers underneath and eventually degrade the surface. We recommend that you protect your new surface from high heat use.
