Kitchens are a focal point for homes and a kitchen that’s in poor shape can really bring down the value of your home. If you’re dealing with stains or scratches you will surely need countertop restoration services to bring back the countertop to their original quality. If you’re on a limited budget, restoration and refinishing your countertops is a great first step in making a huge difference in your kitchen. Later, you can focus on a full kitchen remodel or update your cabinets. If your countertops are beyond repair of if you’d simply prefer to upgrade your kitchen, you can always replace your countertops.
Not all stains are created equally. To restore countertops you or your service provider needs to know not only the material your countertops are made of, but what the source of the problem is. A skilled contractor will be able to determine the products and techniques to remove the stains from the countertops. Many stains will require at least 48 hours to remove. Typically the contractor will create a poultice, which is a chemical absorbent mixture that will draw the stain out.
Another common reason contractors are called upon for countertop restoration services is to remove scratches. Just like wood flooring, stone restoration involves sanding and refinishing. One way to remove scratches from the countertops is to sand down the scratch to the point where the area is just as smooth as the surrounding areas. This process will require special tools and expertise so that you don’t overly sand and cause more damage to the countertops. The process begins with rough sanding paper to remove the scratch and ending with softer sanding paper for a smooth finish.
Restoration and refinishing your countertops is a great way to upkeep the look of your kitchen. Don’t let drab countertops bring down the look of your home. Remember that an impressive kitchen will increase the value of your home and a run-down kitchen will severely decrease the value.
