    About Resurfacing Kitchen Benchtops
    Kitchen Benchtop Resurfacing FAQS

    We often get asked if it’s possible to resurface laminate benchtops. The good news is that the answer is a resounding yes! In fact, most types of benchtops, including tile, wood and stone can be transformed with Granite Transformations engineered stone overlay.

    If you’re thinking of resurfacing laminate benchtops in your home, the surface should be nice and flat and in decent nick.

    The main issue we come across that may make resurfacing your laminate benchtops a little more tricky is if water has damaged the chipboard underneath the laminate causing it to warp or swell.

    Granite Transformations surfaces are crafted from a quality compound of quartz, naturally occuring minerals and glass. This unique blend results in a surface that is not only incredibly robust but also easy to maintain. The non-porous surface is naturally resistant to scratches, heat damage, and stains, ensuring that it will maintain its beauty and functionality for years to come.

    Yes, the stone overlay will cover your old rounded edge profile and give you a modern square profile edge. The edges are honed ever so slightly with a 3mm pencil round to soften any sharp edges and give you a look that appears just like modern solid stone benchtops.

    The installation time for stone overlay benchtops can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project. However, one of the advantages of this clever engineered stone overlay is that it can be installed quickly and easily, often in as little as one day. Unlike traditional stone surfaces, with resurfacing kitchen benchtops there is no need for demolition or messy grouting, which can save you time and money on installation costs.

    Maintaining and cleaning Granite Transformations engineered stone is simple and fuss-free.

    Unlike natural stone, there’s no need for frequent sealing or fretting over every little spill. The surfaces are designed to be durable and long-lasting and will remain beautiful and functional for many years with almost zero effort.

    Daily Cleaning
    Simply wipe down benchtops with a damp soft cloth or sponge and a bit of mild detergent. You can also use any multipurpose cleaning spray that doesn’t contain bleach.

    Dealing with Stains
    Granite Transformations is one of the most stain resistant surfaces on the market. However, it’s still best to avoid leaving spills on the stone for long periods of time. If you do get a little staining from time time a magic eraser sponge works great and is available at any supermarket these days. Alternatively, you can use a little diluted bleach and water. Leave for about 5 minutes and wipe off.

    Restoring Shine
    Unlike porous natural stone like marble which may require re-sealing every 3-6 months, a Granite Transformations benchtop surface is designed to keep looking its best with very little effort on your behalf. We would recommend restoring the polished shine of the surface after its been 10 years or more with a little ‘Tenax Ager’ – a wet look colour enhancer.

    Overall, with proper care and maintenance, Granite Transformations engineered stone benchtops can remain beautiful and functional for many years to come.
