Your countertops are arguably one of the first things that people notice as they step into your home. So, what do you do if you have damaged countertops that could really use some attention? If you are weighing your options about whether to repair or replace them, this quick guide may provide some answers.
When to Repair
Over time, you may find that your counters sustain normal wear and tear, like scuffs and dings. The good news is that most of the time, these issues are only affecting the surface of your counters and can be repaired by a countertop professional. In fact, asking about a repair before you go the route of replacement may save you quite a bit of time, money, and hassle! A countertop specialist can recommend the best repairs depending upon the type of material and the severity of the problem.
When to Replace
There are also times, however, when replacing your counters is going to be the best option. For example, if you have a whole edge missing or you have large gashes in the surface, replacement may be your best option. Of course, you may also be considering replacement if you are planning a full kitchen or bathroom upgrade and new counters will provide a fresh look and feel. In this case, you may want to ask if there are any specific countertop materials that will work best for your space and your intended use.
