Countertop refinishing is simply the process of repairing and then restoring a countertop either in a kitchen or a bathroom for any of the following reasons: to boost the aesthetic value of the countertop, to extend the overall functional life of the countertop, and to improve home value. We refinish countertops in Lakeland, Orlando and throughout Central Florida.
Complete countertop replacement is an expensive option, between the material and installation, so countertop refinishing should be a consideration whenever possible.
Laminated countertops are indeed meant to last a long time, but over several years they can begin to get worn down, suffer from stains and scratches, and overall just not look as glossy or as new as they used to. Chipping is also a serious issue with countertops.
We fully understand this here at Lakeland Bathtub Refinishing Masters, and we also understand that you may not want to spend the thousands of dollars it would normally cost to have your countertops completely replaced, which is why refinishing is a great alternative. We can easily refinish your countertops in either your kitchen or in your bathrooms.
What Are The Main Advantages of Refinishing Countertops Over Replacement?
The biggest benefit to having your countertop refinished rather than replaced, by far, is the cost savings. But how much cheaper is refinishing exactly? Well, you can expect to probably pay around half for refinishing your countertop in contrast to what you would pay to have it completely replaced.
Another big advantage to refinishing is the fact that it is far more time efficient in order to do. When you schedule counter top refinishing services with us, we'll be in and out typically in the same day. Whereas countertop installation or replacement can take several days if not weeks, when you consider the time it takes you to shop for the counter material you like, hunt for bargain prices, hire a contractor to measure and order the countertop, wait for the arrival of the counter and, finally, have your contractor load and install the countertop. It can be a grueling process.
What's more, refinished countertops will increase the overall durability of the countertop, to the fact that you can expect it to last for up to a decade with proper maintenance and care. The lasting time depends on daily wear and tear, but you'll typically get a lot of life out of refinishing your counters.
The overall process to countertop refinishing is a rather simple one. First, the countertop will need to have repairs done to any stains, nicks, chips, or scratches. This can be accomplished by sanding down the stain and professionally filling blemishes. We work with high quality countertop transformation techniques to get this job done for you.
Next, acrylic coating needs to be applied to the existing countertop. Regardless of whether the countertop is made out of tile, Formia, Corian, or whatever else, a durable and strong coating of acrylic coating will need to be applied. After that, we’ll be able to complete the process of refinishing the countertop according to the coloring that you would like.
Many of the tools, equipment, materials and techniques we use to refinish bathtubs are utilized in the process of countertop resurfacing as well. Given how the number of tubs, tile surfaces and fixtures we refinish on a yearly basis, you can rest assured that we have plenty of experience and will refinish your counters the right way.

A typical bathtub reglazing project will be done in one day. If the project includes a fully tiled shower or shower surround, we might need two days for the work and curing.
The key to getting more years out of your refinishing service is to be gentle with your tub and tile. Avoid using harsh chemicals and cleaning agents. A properly finished bathroom fixture should last 10-15 years, with reasonable use.
If you're wondering whether it makes more sense to reglaze your tub or replace it, here are a few thoughts to consider. First, do you like your existing tub, outside of its color or age? If so, then you can restore the surface like-new with refinishing for a lot less than if you had to replace it. Do you want to avoid demo? Then refinishing will be a better choice because no demolition or installation is needed to reglaze a tub. Do you want to have your bathroom back quickly? A remodel can take weeks, but most refinishing jobs are done in 1-2 days.
