Pacific Reglazing has improved thousands of countertops by conveniently and inexpensively repairing and reglazing counter surfaces.  Reglazing can prolong the life of old countertops without the need of replacing, but sometimes a further upgrade to a new laminate counter is necessary or desired.  In order to fully Measure Up to our customer wishes, we now offer an affordable laminate counter service which means we can handle all of your countertop upgrade needs.  

When is it time to replace a counter top?

1.         The counter is beyond repair – reglazing can fix surface defects, but warped or swollen counters should be replaced.

2.          You want the look of a laminate counter – reglazed surfaces are available in a variety of colors and speckled finishes.  Laminates are available in more complex patterns that can’t be achieved by reglazing.  

REGLAZING vs. REPLACING

Re-glazing is a process using a sprayed on material that cures to a very hard finish. It is a very popular solution because it is fast, inexpensive and surprisingly durable, available in any solid color and can be produced in some speckled finishes as well.  Price is the primary advantage over any other option.  It can transform an old worn surface into a beautiful countertop that enhances the desirability of a kitchen or bathroom.  Reglazing is a very good, low budget solution that makes it possible to avoid replacing old laminate surface. 

Re-placing may be necessary if the counter material (often particle board) has been water damaged causing it to swell which often leads to the lifting and / or peeling of the laminated surface. Little can be done other than to replace a counter where the base material of the counter has become swollen, warped or broken. Reglazing can not reproduce the patterns of a laminated surface, so building owners and designers with a little more budget to work with may opt to choose a laminate with a color and pattern that better suits the look they are after.  Laminate surfaces are also somewhat more durable than a reglazed surface. The laminated surfaces are chemical-resistant, fire rated, and can withstand heavier traffic in high wear kitchen surfaces.
