Formica or laminate countertops in Indian River County
Are laminate countertops durable?
Behind are the days when Formica or laminate countertops in Indian River County invoked the image of your grandmother’s white, stained, chipped-at-the-edges, plastic-looking kitchen countertop.
The newest technologies have allowed laminate to become more than a low-budget option by increasing its resistance to scratches, stains and burns. Nowadays, the most advanced laminate countertops can last up to 20 years.
They’re as resistant to scratches and to heat as granite and quartz, and more resistant to stains than either for half the price tag. They are also easier to maintain than stone: you only need to make sure you don’t clean them with abrasive products and you’re all set.
When you buy the most advanced Formica or laminate countertops in Indian River County, you won’t only get durability for a long price, but also beauty. While cheaper laminates have a shallow, patterned look, high-end ones can realistically imitate natural stone, wood, quartz and other materials.
A common complaint regarding laminate is that, once damaged, it is very difficult to repair. Unlike granite or sandstone, it can’t be sanded, so many people instead opt for resurfacing.
However, with Surface Specialists of the Treasure Coast, replacing or refinishing your countertop is not the only option. Countertop repairs are feasible when the damage is localized to one or two areas.
Countertop repairs are blended in to match the existing surface and are generally undetectable to anyone who is unaware of the original damage.
