Natural 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.

- 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.
