Countertops stained, lifting at the seams, burned scratched, or just outdated?  To replace your laminate countertops with another laminate countertop, or to switch to an ordinary granite or quartz, they are going to have to remove your old counters, risking possible damage to your cabinets. Now there’s an easier solution. Granite Transformations has a product that is 95% quartz, glass or granite, 5% polymer, and is only 1/4” thick, so it can be placed directly over your old counters.  Your new countertops are fabricated in our shop so that none of the time-consuming mess occurs in your home. On installation day, they bring them finished and ready to install. Your beautiful new – heat, scratch and stain resistant – countertops are set in place and permanently bonded to your old ones.

A Granite Transformation to a standard size kitchen countertop and backsplash is typically completed in just one day. Do you have a beautiful tile backsplash that you want to keep but want your countertops changed?  Granite Transformations can scribe right to your tile so you don’t have to worry about damaging it with any demolition of existing counters.
