Stone Refinishing RestorationNatural stone surfaces like marble, limestone, travertine, and soapstone can be honed and polished to look new again. This process is called “stone restoration” or “stone resurfacing” and it’s a great way to give your kitchen countertops a fresh new look without having to spend thousands on new ones.

Benefits of “Refinish Don’t Replace” on Stone Counters

  • Time is on your side, a kitchen countertop restoration will take a day or two, often making your counters beautiful and adding specialty coatings can make them people-proof too!
  • Refinishing gives an existing structure additional value without having to start from scratch.
  • Refinishing your kitchen countertops is the environmentally friendly choice because it uses fewer raw materials than replacing your countertops entirely.


Who Can Refinish My Kitchen Countertops?

By hiring a professional who does this work every day, you’ll be able to recapture the original beauty with a process called stone restoration.

While taking on a DIY countertop restoration is not impossible, the fastest, easiest way to understand your refinishing options is to call a stone restoration professional. A professional can give you advice on what type of sealer to use, whether or not grinding is necessary and how to finish the stone surface for the best performance and aesthetic.


In the end, it’s your choice whether or not you want to refinish your countertops. It’s an important decision because refinishing your stone will restore the natural beauty at a fraction of the cost and hassle of replacement. The good news is that your stone countertops can be returned to their original condition.
