Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is involved in doing a Custom Refinish?
A. The first step is that we will move all appliances around/on top of the counter tops or the product that we are refinishing. Then surface is cleaned off of all contaminants and debris. We then tape and cover all the products that are not being refinished (like faucets & fixtures). if there are small cracks in the grout, tile, tub, sink it will be patched if need. An epoxy primer is then applied followed by the finish coat.

A. Your Custom Refinish is extremely durable and will last for the next 10 to 15 years. It will not fade, yellow, crack, peel or blister under normal use. It can, however, be damaged or defaced by falling objects or incur deep surface scratches with metal objects.
Q. Can I set hot pans on a Custom Refinish?
A. Although it is heat resistant, It is not recommended that hot pans be directly set onto the new Custom Refinished surface as it could cause yellowing of the surface. Yellowing can still accrue even though the new surface is fully cured.
