Surface Type  FORMICA

When we think of the older-type kitchen laminate countertops, we usually think of the word "formica", which is a heat-resistant, wipe-clean, plastic laminate that was used almost exclusively in the 50s, 60s, and 70 to make kitchen countertops.  TRIVIA TIP:  Formica is not the name of this laminate - it's actually the name of the company that manufactured it, but nevertheless, the word "formica" has become synonymous with its classic product.

Kitchen Countertops

These day, most people want granite countertops in their kitchen.  But the price is too high - usually $50 per square foot installed!  We have a workaround.

Kitchen Formica Before and After RefinishingWe use a MultiSpec finish - not a solid color finish - to refinish formica, tile, and butcher block kitchen countertops.  Why not use a solid color finish?  It's because kitchen countertops get a lot of use and abuse,  which requires a sealer top coat for durability that a solid color finish does not have.  In addition to that, a solid color finish shows flaws too easily for kitchen use.  The MultiSpec finish is designed not only to hide flaws, but also to give the appearance of granite, which is the #1 reason to choose MultiSpec.

But what exactly IS MultiSpec?  It is a uniquely decorative paint that consists of individual flecks of different colors, subtly blended to achieve the natural appearance of granite.  This coating is actually encapsulated paint balls that when shot out of the spray gun, explode onto the countertop in a random pattern, which gives the surface the look of granite.  The finish is durable, and the stone look is truly custom.  Click HERE to see all the MultiSpec color themes.

To get a quick bid, send an email with pictures of the countertops, along with measurements (length of each countertop or backsplash).


Please note that our warranty is specifically related to the two things under our control:  workmanship and product defects.  We do not guarantee that damage won't reappear later in a countertop if the underlying source of the damage (possibly a house shift, improper initial installation, water leak, or previous damage to the same area) has not been corrected.
