Refinish v. N Laminate Countertops

Postby Lady tehMa » Nov 28th, 2017, 6:39 pm

I need new countertops. I'm not sure if I could get away with just a surface refinish or if I'll need new ones. Laminate only - that's what our budget is.

What would you recommend?

If redoing, who would you recommend?
I haven't failed until I quit.

There are stone refinishing kits available at Home Hardware, Home Depot and I think Rona also carries the product.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

I have been in the business for years and I don't have anyone that I could recommend to do that job. Where do you live? PM me.

If you currently have laminate, they sell kits to refinish yourself. I used one about a year ago in an office and it turned out pretty nice. It was a lot of work but you really labor is free, and if you don't mind a project give it a try.
