Ascension Services Offers a Tip for Fall Home Remodels: Don’t Replace Countertops – Refinish Them

Share Article

Replacing countertops can be time consuming and expensive. Refinishing countertops can save homeowners time and money during kitchen remodels.

Being green goes beyond your plastic bottles- Try it with your counter tops and other household items!

Now that Fall has arrived, many homeowners are making the transition from outdoor to indoor remodeling projects. With holiday gatherings and feasts on the horizon, it’s still possible to reinvent a kitchen with a minimal time and cost commitment.

“It’s a new trend to reuse old furnishings and refinish them – it’s less expensive than to replace. You recycle your old counter by giving it a brand new look rather than replacing it completely,” says Elsa Santamaria of Ascension Services.

Recycling a home’s countertops has several advantages:

-It extends the life of an existing countertop without the mess of a complete remodel. This is especially important when it comes to custom countertops and large counters with unique curves and angles.

-The demolition associated with countertop replacement can shut down a kitchen and, in many cases, it takes days for the replacement counter to be put in place. If a homeowner chooses to refinish a countertop, the job can often be done within 24.

-It saves money. A countertop refinish can save homeowners 30% to 50% over total replacement costs.

The process Ascension Services uses involves the application of a hard and durable acrylic coating to an existing countertop. They then apply Stone-Flecks™ Green Line Paint, which is an eco-friendly, VOC compliant multi-color finish that is available in over 20 colors.

“Without even touching the walls or replacing the appliances, a skilled counter top refinishing job can make a kitchen seem spacious, brighter and modern,” says Elsa.

Refinishing isn't just for kitchen countertops. The same can be done with bathroom vanities, breakfast bars and even old marble surfaces.
