Have you noticed the countertops looking a little bland lately? Countertops can take a beating from the day-to-day, whether it’s cooking a meal in the kitchen or in the bathroom with curling irons leaving marks or stains from make-up or hair products. It depends on the material as well. Softer materials such as wood and laminate can break down a lot quicker than granite or marble. Either way, countertops need to be refreshed or renovated after years of wear and tear. Rissco Fabrication can work with you to get you that brand new countertop to suit your everyday needs.

Here are some reasons to consider replacing and upgrading your countertops:

Cooking Mishaps: Accidents happen. A hot pot is put on the countertop without something underneath. A cup of coffee or red wine gets knocked over. In the bathroom with various hair care products such as flat irons or curling irons can accidentally burn your countertop materials. Countertops can lose their shine over years of use and no amount of cleaning can bring it back to its original look.

Cracks: Cracks can happen in two ways. It could be an area or seal that has weakened in the countertop, or something heavy could have been dropped, such as a cast-iron pot, causing a chip or a crack in the countertop. Most quartz or granite tops are strong enough to handle accident drops like that, but it could still happen. It’s “softer” countertops such as wood or laminate that can be an issue.

Remodeling: Nothing may necessarily be wrong with your countertop, however it might just be time for an upgrade. If you’re already renovating and remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, consider changing your countertops to fit the new theme or style for the room.
