Surface Type LAMINATE

When we think of the old kitchen countertops from the 50's and 60's, we usually think of the word "Formica".  Formica is actually the name of a company and a brand that has become synonymous with its classic product.  Laminate countertops are made from layers of plastic that are bonded to particle board or kraft paper to create a solid, heat-resistant, and wipe-clean countertop surface.

Kitchen Countertops

Granite countertops are so popular today, and they instantly update the kitchen area.  So what do you do when you have laminate, tile, or butcher block countertops that "work" perfectly fine, but you want that rich look of granite without tearing out the existing countertops?  You have them refinished in a MultiSpec finish.

Kitchen Formica Before and After RefinishingBecause granite is the look most people are after, we use a MultiSpec finish - not a solid color finish - to refinish laminate, tile, and butcher block kitchen countertops.  The reason we do not use a solid color finish is because kitchen countertops get a lot of use and abuse,  which requires a sealer topcoat 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, splatter onto the countertop in a random pattern, which gives the surface the look of granite.  The finish is durable, and the look is truly custom.  Take a look at all the color choices below.  To get a quick bid, send an email with pictures of the countertops, along with measurements (length of each countertop or backsplash).
