How we Tune-Up your Kitchen Countertops

Step 1: Clean

Using a professional cleaning a soft buffing rage, we prepare the granite surface with a thorough cleaning.

Step 2: Seal

We apply the sealer which provides a protective barrier against moisture and other elements.

Step 3: Polish

We use a hand buffer to apply a professional-grade polish.

Laminate countertops are moderately durable and available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Laminate is an inexpensive option that makes it popular for those who want to change their kitchen’s look and feel without the permanence and investment of more expensive materials.

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Low investment
  • Versatile with plenty of color and textures to choose from

Cons

  • Lifespan is shorter compared to other countertop materials
  • Laminate is not heat resistant
  • Adds little ROI to the resale value of your home

Quartz is an alternative to granite. Quartz has become a more popular option in kitchens since it is extremely durable, long-lasting, and nearly maintenance-free. Quartz is considered an engineered stone and is FDA approved for food preparation. It is scratch-resistant and never needs sealing or polishing – simply clean with warm water. It is also non porous, so staining liquids and bacteria are not absorbed.

Quartz countertops are extremely hard wearing, but if you need to repair any damage, it can be done with a power tool and diamond polishing pads. 

Pros

  • Quartz countertops look amazing
  • Great resale value
  • It’s stain-resistant
  • Low maintenance kitchen countertop material

Cons

  • High investment
  • It can be damaged by heat

If you are looking for a jaw-dropping high-end kitchen countertop for your home, marble is a premium quality material that will add elegance to your room. While marble will certainly add some luxury to your kitchen, it does need looking after. Marble is a porous material, so any spills from liquids such as wine or coffee should be quickly cleaned up to avoid stains.

Pros

  • Adds spectacular beauty to your kitchen
  • Each marble countertop is unique
  • Countertop stays cool naturally (perfect for baking!)
  • It blends well with most kitchen styles

Cons

  • Highest investment 
  • High Maintenance
  • Stains easily

Solid surface countertops are human-made and practically maintenance-free. These countertops are available in hundreds of colors and can come in certain finishes, such as dull or glossy. Also, the investment in a solid-surface is less than some other countertops. The investment depends on the color and style you choose. Also, the option for seamless corners makes solid surfaces a popular choice.

Solid surface countertops are softer than natural stone ones making them more susceptible to scratches. Care should be taken, and chopping boards should be used to prevent any scratching; still, all is not lost if you do scratch the countertop as it can be repaired.

Solid surface kitchen countertops are straightforward to refinish, and any scratches can be sanded out using fine sandpaper.

Pros

  • Stains and scratches can be easily sanded away
  • Its appearance can mimic granite or quartz
  • Available in hundreds of colors and patterns
  • Less investment than granite or quartz countertops

Cons

  • It can be damaged by heat
  • Prone to scratches

Wood countertops offer a natural aesthetic to your kitchen but still fit in with modern designs. You might also hear wood countertops be called butcher block countertops. The most common butcher block countertops are those made from reclaimed wood or sustainable woods such as maple and bamboo. You’ll also find birch, cherry, oak, teak, and walnut kitchen countertops.

Wood can add warmth to your kitchen compared to other materials like granite that can be cold and minimalistic; this comes down to your style preferences.

Refinishing a wood countertop is relatively easy with a bit of sanding involved and then applying a finish to the surface.

Pros

  • Reclaimed and sustainable wood is eco-friendly
  • The different grains can produce a unique look to your kitchen
  • Wood has natural, anti-bacterial benefits
  • Straightforward to refinish
  • Easy to install

Cons

  • Requires maintenance
  • It can suffer from water damage if not sealed properly
  • Prone to dents and scratches

Tile countertops are extremely versatile and come in a wide range of options, including ceramic, porcelain, slate, quartz, and mosaic tiles. They are also available in different colors, sizes, and shapes, making it easy to customize the design to your preferred style.

Ceramic tile countertops have a very low investment point, and offer the benefit of being easy to maintain, waterproof, and heat resistant. If something heavy is dropped on ceramic tiles, however, they can break or chip.

Pros

  • Plenty of design options
  • Easy to replace
  • Affordable
  • Easy to install
  • Heat resistant

Cons

  • Surface is uneven
  • Can easily chip

Stainless steel countertops are on the higher end of the countertop investment spectrum, but the upside is that they will last a lifetime. They’ll give a modern look to your kitchen, and you’ll understand why this is the material of choice for restaurant kitchens.  It’s no secret that stainless steel is stain-resistant, but as metal is non porous, it is also antibacterial. So if you are a stickler for cleanliness, it could be a good choice for your kitchen countertops. It’s also unaffected by heat, so hot pots and pans can be placed on its surface without ruining your countertop.

Stainless steel kitchen countertops come in several different finishes. The most popular is brushed, which doesn’t show up fingerprints as much. A stainless steel kitchen countertop probably won’t need refinishing, but after a few years, if it’s received a lot of scratches, you might want to call in the professionals to take a look.

Pros

  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Durable
  • Easy to clean
  • Low maintenance
  • Stainless steel can last a lifetime

Cons

  • Not ideal for refinishing
  • Lower-grade steel can dent or scratch
  • It can accumulate fingerprints easily
  • High initial investment
