Formica Countertops – When Do I Need to Refinish My Laminate Countertop?
If your countertops are, for the most part, structurally sound, but they are just looking tired and dated, then resurfacing them may be just what you’re looking for. Resurfacing allows you to change the look and feel of your countertops without breaking the bank. You can beautifully transform them in 1-2 days for a fraction of the cost of tear out and replacement.
If you are unsure whether or not your countertop can be refinished, consulting with a professional can help you make an informed decision.
Why Countertop Refinishing?
When most people imagine updating their kitchens, they picture tearing out everything and starting from scratch. Thankfully, taking such drastic measures aren’t necessary in order to give your kitchen a whole new look.
Kitchen countertop resurfacing can do wonders for your home’s aesthetics, while costing a lot less and with next to no hassle. Take a look at some of the benefits of refinishing your bathroom or kitchen countertop rather than replacing them.
Formica Countertops – Advantages of Refinishing Laminate Countertop
Refinishing Formica countertops is a great choice for homeowners who want to update their kitchen or bathroom without spending a ton of money.
Refinishing a formica countertop is much easier than replacing it, as it does not require any demolition work and can be done quickly with minimal disruption to your home. Plus, you won’t need to worry about the extra expense of buying new materials and hiring multiple contractors.
The process of refinishing involves abrading the existing finish and applying multiple layers of new finishes in order to give the countertop a beautiful new look. This gives you the opportunity to customize the color scheme of the countertop to match your decor. An added benefit is that the new finish helps protect against scratches, heat, and moisture damage.
Resurfaced countertops are highly durable and can last for many years with normal care. The materials used in the resurfacing process are designed to withstand wear and tear from constant use. They also resist heat, scratches, chips, and staining. Additionally, the new surface won’t fade or discolor over time, ensuring the countertops look great for years to come.
Refinishing a formica countertop also adds value to your home by increasing its appeal for potential buyers in the future. The cost of refinishing is a fraction of the price of replacing the countertop, making it an economical choice for homeowners who want to save money while maintaining a high-quality look in their kitchen or bathroom.
Overall, refinishing formica countertops has numerous advantages that make it a worthwhile investment for any homeowner. Not only does it provide an affordable way to update your kitchen or bathroom without needing costly demolition work, but it also increases the longevity and value of your home.

Why should I consider refinishing or resurfacing?
Refinishing and resurfacing are cost effective alternatives to replacing your countertop that is outdated, damaged, difficult to maintain, or simply not the look you want for 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 countertop is 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, and walls are carefully covered to fully protected them 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 counter is ready for use in as little as 48 hours!
Which surfaces can I have refinished or resurfaced?
Countertops – laminate, tile, solid surfaces, cultured marble, wood, granite, and marble
Bathtubs – porcelain, fiberglass, acrylic, cultured marble, clawfoot tubs
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 countertop, tub, and tile 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.
