Video: Repairing a Scratch in a Cultured Marble Countertop / Vanity

Posted on 23 September 2016 by cradmin

This video shows one process used to repair a cultured marble vanity countertop that has been scratched. There is not a lot of information on whose methodology this is or where it is filmed, but it does walk through the various grit changes to get the scratch out of this top.

Because cultured marble typically only has a thin gel-coat top, and are relatively inexpensive, few spend the kind of time developing techniques to fix the material. However, this method appears to work.

Let us know what you think.

Solid Surface Repair

Posted on 15 April 2013 by cradmin

While solid surface material is not as hard as some of its counterparts (granite, quartz surfacing), one of its selling points  has always been its renewability. Anyone familiar with the material knows that if it is damaged, it can be repaired, usually to where the damaged area cannot be detected when done. All that is required is the right set of tools, the know-how and a color-matched piece of material.

We ran across this useful video showing “wikedfamousmikeal” demonstrating the process for repairing a solid surface countertop that had been damaged, along with the integral sink attached to it.

Obviously, this guy knows his stuff, and from the comments at the end, the customer thought so too:

Utilizing Granite, Quartz and Solid Surface Repair Services

Posted on 24 October 2012 by CRadmin2

Many countertop owners are surprised to learn that damage to granite, quartz and solid surface countertops can be repaired, often without having to remove and reinstall them. While fabricators are aware that these repairs are possible, the work may require some of their best employees, and it detracts from the primary task at hand, which is fabricating new countertops.

One solution to the dilemma caused by damaged countertops is to hire a repair specialist. A specialist, such as Surface Link Corporation, can complete repairs on countertops from most major manufacturers, and can help fulfill warranty service work that would otherwise detract from new countertop fabrication. The service has the potential to save fabricators time and money while keeping their customers satisfied.

Countertop repair firms that hire only professionally trained and certified technicians can complete any type of granite, quartz or solid surface repairs with minimal disruption to the lives of the customers requiring the repairs. Restorations, refinishing jobs and repairs can be completed onsite, and most jobs can be done in a single day, especially if they are only crack and scratch repairs.

Although they are still relatively unknown, specialist countertop repair companies seem to be catching on with both consumers and fabricators. When asked about the current market, the national account manager at Surface Link, Marty Vatis, said, “Many people are surprised to hear that their countertops can be repaired or refinished to look like new and that all the work is done without removing the countertop. In addition, many are surprised to hear that we can replace their sink without removing the countertop as well.”

As proof that the market for these specialists is improving, Surface Link has just expanded to offer service in all 50 states after 15 years as a certified warranty agent. Previously, residential and commercial restoration services were only offered by the company in a few select markets.
