OUR SERVICES

Glossy Finish Countertops

A glossy finish on countertops is synonymous with a luxurious, reflective surface that instantly elevates the aesthetic appeal of any kitchen or commercial space. At New Finish, we understand that the allure of a glossy finish lies in its ability to amplify light, creating a brighter, more spacious feeling environment. This finish option is highly sought after for its sleek, smooth texture that offers a modern touch to interiors. While it’s visually striking, it also requires regular maintenance to keep it looking pristine, as it can show fingerprints and smudges more readily than other finishes. 

Matte Finish Countertops

Matte finish countertops offer a subtle, sophisticated aesthetic that complements a wide range of design styles. At New Finish, we appreciate the understated elegance of a matte finish, which provides a smooth, non-reflective surface for those who prefer a more muted decor. Ideal for both residential and commercial settings, matte finishes excel in hiding smudges, fingerprints, and watermarks, making them a practical choice for high-traffic areas. Our refinishing process emphasizes the use of superior coatings that ensure longevity, resistance to wear, and ease of cleaning.

Satin Finish Countertops

Satin finish countertops strike a perfect balance between the reflective sheen of a glossy finish and the subdued elegance of a matte finish, making them a versatile choice for any setting. New Finish specializes in creating satin finishes that offer a smooth, velvety texture with a slight sheen that catches the light beautifully without being overly shiny. This finish type is renowned for its ability to conceal fingerprints and watermarks better than glossy surfaces, while still being easier to clean and maintain than completely matte finishes. 

Choosing the Right Finish

Choosing the right finish for your countertop refinishing project is a critical decision that impacts not only the aesthetics of your space but also its functionality and durability. To make an informed choice, it’s essential to consider several factors that align with your personal preferences, lifestyle needs, and overall design goals.

 

Consider Your Space’s Aesthetic

 

The finish you select should complement the existing décor and style of your kitchen or bathroom. Whether you’re aiming for a modern, minimalist look or a more traditional, warm ambiance, the finish can significantly influence the space’s overall appearance. For example, a high-gloss epoxy coating might suit a contemporary kitchen, while a faux granite finish could enhance the warmth of a classic design.

 

Assess Durability and Maintenance Needs

 

Different finishes offer varying levels of durability and resistance to wear. Consider the amount of use and the type of activities your countertops will endure. If your kitchen is a high-traffic area or you often entertain, you might prioritize a finish that resists scratches, stains, and heat. Similarly, if low maintenance is a priority, look for finishes that are easy to clean and don’t require regular sealing or special care.

 

Budget Considerations

 

Cost is always a factor in home improvement projects. The price of countertop refinishing varies depending on the finish material and the complexity of the application process. It’s important to set a budget beforehand and discuss cost options with your refinishing specialist. While it might be tempting to choose the least expensive option, consider the long-term value and durability of the finish to ensure it offers good value for money.

 

Lifestyle Compatibility

 

Your lifestyle should play a significant role in your finish selection. For families with young children or pets, a more durable and easy-to-clean finish might be preferable. If you love cooking and spend a lot of time in the kitchen, choose a heat-resistant and food-safe finish. Reflecting on how you use your space will help narrow down the options to those that best suit your daily activities.

Maintaining Your Refinished Countertops

Maintaining the newly refinished countertops is crucial for keeping them in pristine condition, ensuring their appearance and durability last for years. While different finishes might necessitate varying levels of care, there are some general practices alongside specific advice for common finishes that can help in preserving the countertop’s beauty and functionality.

General Maintenance Practices

Regular cleaning stands out as the cornerstone of countertop maintenance. Addressing spills and stains promptly with a soft cloth or sponge and a mild cleaner prevents them from becoming permanent marks. It’s critical to steer clear of abrasive cleaners or pads that might scratch the surface. Employing protective mats or trivets is a wise strategy when placing hot items on your countertops to shield the finish from potential heat damage.

Laminate Refinishing

Laminate finishes, celebrated for their durability, can still fall victim to scratches and heat damage. It’s advised to avoid placing hot items directly on the surface and to refrain from using sharp objects without a cutting board. A solution of mild detergent and water usually suffices for cleaning, followed by a rinse with clean water and drying with a soft cloth to prevent water spots.

Solid Surface Refinishing

Known for their seamless appearance and repairability, solid surface countertops can often have minor scratches and burns buffed out. It’s recommended to use a non-abrasive cleaner and a Scotch-Brite pad for such tasks. Protecting the surface from extreme heat and using cutting boards to prevent scratches are practices that will help maintain the countertop’s integrity.

Stone-Look Finishes

For finishes that mimic the look of stone, such as faux granite, care similar to that for actual stone is required. Using coasters under glasses, particularly with acidic drinks, can prevent etching. Immediate cleanup of spills is crucial to avoid stains, and employing a pH-neutral cleaner designed for stone can maintain the finish without causing damage.

Epoxy Coatings

Epoxy finishes boast high durability and resistance to various types of damage, including heat and moisture. Nevertheless, they can still be scratched by sharp objects. Daily cleaning with a soft cloth and gentle cleaner is recommended, avoiding scouring pads and abrasive cleaners that can mar the glossy surface.

Effective Scratch Repair Techniques

Even with the best care and maintenance, countertops can accumulate scratches over time due to everyday use. The good news is that many scratches can be minimized or even removed with the right techniques, depending on the type of finish on your countertop. Here’s a comprehensive guide to addressing scratches on various countertop finishes, helping you keep your surfaces looking their best.

 

Laminate Countertops

 

Scratches on laminate countertops can sometimes be masked or repaired, depending on their depth. For shallow scratches, a laminate repair paste or a color-matched laminate filler can be applied. After cleaning the area thoroughly, apply the paste or filler with a putty knife, following the product’s instructions. Once dry, gently sand the area with fine-grit sandpaper until it’s flush with the surrounding surface.

 

Solid Surface Countertops

 

One of the advantages of solid surface materials is their ability to be repaired relatively easily. For minor scratches, a mild abrasive cleaner and a non-abrasive scrubbing pad can be effective. Rub the area in a circular motion, and then rinse thoroughly. For deeper scratches, sanding with progressively finer grits of sandpaper may be necessary, followed by buffing to restore the original finish.

 

Stone-Look and Natural Stone Countertops

 

Stone-look finishes, as well as natural stone countertops, require special care when dealing with scratches. Minor scratches can sometimes be buffed out using a stone polishing cream and a soft cloth. For deeper scratches, it may be necessary to use a series of diamond hand pads, starting with a coarse grit and moving to finer grits until the scratch is no longer visible.

 

Eco-Friendly Finishes

 

For eco-friendly finishes, scratch repair will depend on the specific material and the nature of the finish. Some eco-friendly materials can be sanded and refinished similarly to solid surface materials, while others may have specialized repair kits or techniques recommended by the manufacturer. Always refer to the care instructions provided with your countertop for the best results.

 

General Tips for Scratch Repair

 

  • Always clean the area thoroughly before attempting any repairs, to ensure the best adhesion and blending of repair materials.
  • Test any repair technique or product in an inconspicuous area first to ensure it does not cause further damage or discoloration.
  • Consider professional repair services for deep or extensive scratches, especially on high-end materials like natural stone or for complex finishes that require specialized treatment.

I first saw New Finish ads on Facebook and gave them a call. They were professional and friendly right off the bat.

They sent their sales rep, Kevin, to give me a quote. Again, professional and friendly. Then came the day for my new countertops.

Brandon sent a text with an arrival time and guess what? Very professional and friendly! Brandon explained in detail what he was going to do and the amount of time he would be there. He performed his job excellently and I’m very pleased with the transformation.

Thanks New Finish!!
