The Benefits of Refinishing
When it comes to refinishing vs. replacing, we vote for refinishing every time. It’s the best option for you, and the planet, and we can tell you why.
Countertops were made to last. Why tear them out when you can brighten them up and have the exact same results visually?
The savings are massive both in time and expense. Save between 30% and 50% on materials and labor, and a months’ worth of wait time!
Kitchens and bathrooms are the most valuable rooms in any home when it comes to resale value. Update your counters and add to that instantly!
Applicable to Any Surface
Eco-friendly, cost-effective, and beneficial to the value of your home—what could be better? But can any counter top be resurfaced? Pedro The House Doctor is happy to report the majority of counter materials can in fact be resurfaced. These include:
If you have a countertop made of quartz or concrete, resurfacing is not for you. These materials are so strong you won’t be concerned about cracks, chips or stains. If you want to freshen up your quartz or concrete countertop, all you need to do is polish it!
However, if you are really sick of looking at it, give us a call and we can talk replacement.
If you’re looking for cold hard facts, we’re not about to hide them from you. When it comes to time and cost, refinishing a countertop by far outweighs replacing in savings.
Refinishing a countertop, when done professionally, will take three to five hours—24 to 48 hours at max if you plan on applying special finishes.
If you go the replacement route, you’ll be looking at a minimum of three to six days for simple materials and a whopping 12 to 24 days for the fabrication and installation of tile or concrete.
On top of our hourly rate, refinishing a countertop costs between $1.67 and $7.17 per square foot depending on if you choose laminate, epoxy or paint and sealant.
Compared to a full replacement, this is minimal. The national average for a full countertop replacement is $2,902 and you can easily work your way up to $10,000+ when using quartz, concrete or slate.

In the end, choosing to refinish your kitchen or bathroom countertops should be a simple decision. It will benefit you financially for very little cost, and make these important rooms seem just like new.
