Countertop Refinishing Post-Installation Care and Cleaning

  • DO NOT TOUCH the resurfaced area for 48 hours after completion of the project.
  • For Stonefleck (acrylic) countertops, DO NOT PLACE anything on the counters for 3 days after completion of the project.
  • For Epoxy countertops wait 7 days after the completion of the project before placing anything with weight on the countertop and wait 30 days before using appliances that use heat.
  • For all other coated surfaces, wait 48 hours before touching or using your refinished surface.
  • USE only non-abrasive or liquid cleaners. DO NOT USE abrasive scouring pads or cleaners. Use only non-abrasive or liquid cleaners*
  • DO NOT USE harsh acids or bleach.

USE ONLY NON-ABRASIVE OR LIQUID CLEANERS on your refinished countertops, vanities, and tub such as Formula 409®, Lysol® Tub & Tile Cleaner®, or Scrubbing Bubbles® or try our home remedy cleaner formula.

DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANSERS, HARSH ACIDS OR CLEANERS THAT CONTAIN BLEACH! These materials can discolor or damage the surface causing premature wear.

USE ONLY NON-ABRASIVE SPONGES OR A DAMP CLOTH. Abrasive cleaning pads like Scotch Bright® pads, Scrub Daddy’s®, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers® can dull or scratch your refinished surface.

DO NOT ALLOW ANY CHEMICALS TO REMAIN ON THE SURFACE for an extended period of time before thoroughly rinsing.

To clean a SLIP-RESISTANT SURFACE, apply a liquid cleaner and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. Agitate lightly with a nylon brush, rinse thoroughly, and dry.

DO NOT USE suction cup bathmats or suction cup hanging hooks as these products will void your warranty.

Please do not hesitate to ask the technicians or office staff if you have any questions.

Refinish Countertops
Why should I consider refinishing or resurfacing?
Refinishing and resurfacing are cost effective alternatives to replacing your bathtub, countertop or tile that is outdated, damaged, difficult to maintain, or simply not the look you want in your surfaces. Renew Resurfacing will repair chips, cracks, and damage to restore your surface to look and feel brand new. You’ll save your hard earned money and avoid weeks of demolition mess and costly replacement.
What is the refinishing process?
The first step, and most important, is the preparation of the surface. The preparation of your surface makes up about 90% of your project. The tub, tiles, or countertop are carefully prepared to ensure that we are using the best products to fit your wants and needs, all while maintaining the integrity of your surfaces. Your floors, countertops, and walls are fully protected from any unwanted mess/damage.  We use drop cloths on every inch of your home that may be affected by the refinishing process, and mask off other areas to ensure your home is left exactly as we found it.  Next, we apply a bonding agent. This creates a permanent bond between your surface and our coating. Now we apply  our special blend adhesive primer, followed by 3 to 4 coats of our premium coating depending on what your surface requires. The end result is a smooth, glossy, easy to clean surface. No steps are skipped and great attention to detail is taken to give the customer the highest quality results. The tub is ready for use as soon as the next morning!
Which surfaces can I have refinished or resurfaced?
Bathtubs – porcelain, fiberglass, acrylic, cultured marble, clawfoot tubs

Countertops – laminate, tile, solid surfaces, cultured marble

Ceramic Tile – walls, countertops, shower pans, showers, floors

Is epoxy countertop cheaper than granite?
Epoxy, when compared to granite, offers a non-porous surface with high durability that promises longevity. It is much more affordable, anywhere from 3-5 times less expensive than granite depending on the scope of the work. 
Do epoxy countertops scratch easily?
Epoxy is a very popular choice for refinishing due to the durability of the epoxy resin. It doesn’t scratch easily, and provides many years of use before the surface fades or becomes dull. It can also handle most common cleaning materials without losing its luster or shine.
Is there an odor?
New finishes contain necessary solvents to make the finish both durable and reliable. Generally, the odor will dissipate within 24-48 hours as the finish completely cures and creates a long lasting, beautiful new finish! If you or anyone in your household are sensitive to paint-like odors, please let us know so we can discuss accommodations for your service.
How long will the new finish last?
With proper care and maintenance, Renew Resurfacing can extend the life of your surfaces for up to 10-15 years or more. Our premium products create a chemical bond between old and new surfaces, assuring your surfaces a long life so that you can enjoy your refinished tub, tile and countertops for years to come.
What are my color choices?
Renew Resurfacing has a variety of high quality finishes that can give your surfaces whatever look and feel you want! We customize your surfaces to be as unique and original as you are, so do not hesitate to bring any finish ideas to the table. 
What about clean up?
We like to leave our customers homes the way we found them. Unlike other refinishers, we remove all paper, tape, masking, clothes, and other items to ensure you get your home back just how you left it. Your bathtub/countertop will be ready for use as soon as the next day.

“I would highly recommend them! Here are some before and after photos featuring the work of Renew Resurfacing – Kitchen & Bath Resurfacing. I’m so glad someone suggested I look into having the countertops and shower epoxied instead of replaced. More cost effective, quicker, and looks great! I will definitely be doing this again!”
