Before we go into the nitty gritty of how the magic happens, we want to mention that refinishing counters is much more affordable than starting over with new construction.
The Refinish First process is a non-acid and works on laminate, Formica, ceramic tile, Corian, Silestone and cultured marbled surfaces. Is your countertop a refinish candidate?
To resurface, the surrounding area is masked off to protect during the process. Then there is a two step process to completely clean all dirt and grease from the surface which is very important to ensure proper bonding. All chips and breaks are filled at this time so they can be sanded until smooth to blend seamlessly. This next step, which is what sets Refinish First apart from many, is the use of its own proprietary bonding agent that enables proper adhesion between the old and new surfaces. With this comes a great finish that is durable, long lasting and comes with an adhesion warranty.
Here is the part that most people care about and that is the new surface. It is possible to match most colors or to go with our most popular finish that look like stone available in several different colors. The technologically advanced coating is very attractive and durable. With proper care, the new finish can increase the longevity another 10 to 15 years, which is found with manufacturers like Kohler and American Standard.
