4 Signs You Need New Kitchen Countertops

Countertops are meant to last a long time. They are also counted among the most-used work surfaces in your home so they will, at some point, need to be replaced. Here are the signs that you need to replace your old kitchen countertops.

1. Cracks and Signs of Erosion 

Countertops can get worn out over time. Laminates may begin to separate from the substrate while natural marble or granite may erode over years of use. Certain types of countertop material can be refinished. However, if the wear and tear is too pronounced, replacing the countertop would be a better option.

2. Stubborn Stains or Burn Marks 

Stains and burn marks may not impair your countertop’s functionality, but they can definitely impair its looks. Before you consider replacing them, we recommend consulting a kitchen remodeler for less invasive repair options. Depending on what material your countertop is made from, the stained or burned areas may be refinished or covered by another material.

3. Your Kitchen Needs a Quick Update 

If your kitchen looks out of date, but a full renovation isn’t possible, a new set of countertops can dramatically change how your kitchen looks. You will want to steer clear of whatever countertop material your kitchen has now. If you’re not sure which material to choose, kitchen remodelers like us can help you pick the right material that works with your kitchen design as well as your budget.

4. You’re Repurposing or Expanding Your Work Surface 

Getting a new countertop doesn’t always mean you’re replacing your current one. Maybe, you need additional work surfaces and are getting a new kitchen island, or your kitchen has work areas that are being underutilized. Perhaps, you need work surfaces that allow access to family members who require more accessible work surfaces.
