Best/fastest Kitchen Countertop Resurface?

4 Replies

Could you share you experience with resurfacing kitchen countertops for rental properties?  I've studied several YouTube videos and the process seems quite achievable, however my concern is that many of the products ask for "no countertop use" for up to a week after application.  Given the necessary 3-day window to complete this project, plus an additional week after installation might be pushing it on my turn-around window.

How do your experiences compare? 

I generally get my countertops glazed. very durable, but it takes a full day, with a recommended additional 72 hrs for the smell to dissipate. Contracting it out with save your lungs.

 Can you change the countertop color/design by glazing?  How much do you typically pay for glazing?
