Updating your house
You'll find an overwhelming amount of colors and patterns to choose from, whether you choose stone or stone-look, so you're bound to find the look that fits your style.
If replacing countertops all together isn't in the budget forecast, consider refinishing to extend the lifeline of your existing counters.
If you're tired of cleaning crumbs or from grout lines, or are numbed by the dull, matte look of your ages-old laminate counters, chances are your kitchen counters can benefit from a complete refresh.
While many nicks, scratches or dings can be sanded down by the homeowner (butcher blocks and solid surfaces), certain materials, like granite or stone, require help from the pros.All surfaces should be structurally sound before attempting to refinish.
