Advantages of Countertop Refinishing vs. Countertop Replacement

Countertop Refinishing vs. Countertop Replacement

If you are looking to redo your countertops, you have two major options. You can either replace the countertops with new ones or refinish the ones you already have. There are pros and cons to each option, but in our experience, countertop refinishing comes out on top in nearly every category. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of countertop refinishing over countertop replacement.


Lower Cost


As you may expect, countertop refinishing is much less expensive than countertop refinishing. Most homeowners save up to 75% by opting for refinishing instead of replacement. With durable, long-lasting refinishing materials like the ones we use at Maryland Tub and Tile, you will be able to get years of great use from your existing counters without having to carry the cost of replacements. Year after year, you will see that countertop refinishing provides a great return on investment.

Faster Installation

With countertop replacement, you have to go through the hassle of tearing out the old counters (without damaging your cabinets), hauling them away, and bringing in new countertops for your kitchen or bathroom. This could take days to do, preventing you from using those rooms the way you want to. Countertop refinishing can be completed in a single day, with no demolition required. You don’t run the risk of hurting your cabinets while taking out your counters because you don’t have to take them out at all. If you’re looking for a hassle-free solution for your kitchen remodeling, this is the way to go

Flat Rate Pricing

With countertop refinishing from Maryland Tub and Tile, you get an exact upfront price with no hidden charges or unexpected fees. Many countertop replacement companies will provide low quotes during their initial consultation so they can land the contract, and then they will tack on fees for the slightest adjustments. We don’t do that. With our countertop refinishing, you know what you’re going to pay right from the start, and it will be much less than the cost of a new countertop.

Environmental Savings

Why put more waste in the world when you have perfectly good countertops already? During the refinishing process, we can repair cracks and blemishes on your counters that may make you think you need to replace them. This extends the life of your countertops, and it helps the environment at the same time. There is no reason to toss out something that’s still usable when you can simply give it a facelift.

Aesthetic Appeal

Natural stone countertops are stunning to look at. There is no debate about that. If you want to upgrade your laminate countertops to stone ones, we don’t blame you. The good news is that you can get the look of natural stone without having to pay for it. We can make your counters look like high-end granite without charging you a fortune for actual stone. Once again, you’ll be saving money on materials, labor, installation, and so much more. The positive opportunities are endless.
