Knowing When to Replace Your Kitchen Countertops

Replacing your kitchen countertops can make you doubt yourself. Because it’s such an important investment, you want to be sure you’re making a decision that will benefit your home.

In this article, we’ve compiled some of the most common reasons why our customers decided to replace their kitchen countertops.

While repairs for minor countertop damages are possible, there is a point of no return. Over the years, they can show signs of age and wear through cracks, erosion, stains, burns, and discoloration. Even if you take care of your countertop, it will still naturally age.

After years of repeated repairs, there comes a time when the best option is replacement.

They needed more space.

There are quite a few ways your family can change, and therefore the needs of your lifestyle will change as well. When people have children, it’s normal to need more space. And if you suddenly find yourself entertaining more guests than ever before, you might need to update your countertops in order to accommodate that.

Replacing the countertops in order to match your needs allows you to enjoy your time spent in the kitchen to the fullest.

Their kitchen suffered smoke damage.

An alarming amount of house fires begin in the kitchen, and even small fires can cause irreparable damage to countertops. Smoke and fire damage are very hard to fix, so a full countertop replacement is usually the best option in this scenario.

Luckily, many homeowners’ insurance policies cover this need for replacement.

Their countertops looked outdated.

Even if your countertop still looks nice, every trend must come to an end. Something that was in style ten years ago could look outdated or even tacky in the present day.

If kitchen aesthetics matter to you, there’s not much you can do to mend an outdated countertop besides replace it entirely. By choosing something that is less likely to go out of style—like granite, marble, or quartz—you reduce the chance of having to replace your countertops again.

They were selling their home.

When your home is on the market, you want to do all you can to make it alluring for buyers—and one of the most beneficial changes you can make has to do with the countertop. Stone countertops can raise the resale value of a home, and by replacing your countertop before putting your house on the market, you can make it more enticing.

New kitchen countertops can help your home sell quicker and for a higher rate.

So thankful for Jennifer and Marble Unlimited. They quickly saved my project when i failed to secure granite for a project we had at our home. From the first interaction, Jennifer was top notch and completely helped me quickly get the granite i needed. They really did it in less than a week. That service time from contact, to selection, to install is unheard of in today's market...yet Marble Unlimited did just that in 7 days. So very thankful for them. Prices were great as well. THANK YOU!!!

Everyone at Marble Unlimited exceeded my expectations and I am so very happy with how our new quartz countertops for our kitchen and laundry room came out. Everything from picking out the stone from all the many slabs they had to choose from, to receiving quotes, to the attention to detail in the measuring, and to the final installation(installers were awesome) was above and beyond. I highly recommend Marble Unlimited.

I am reviewing Marble Unlimited, which is in Hillsborough, NC. I chose a beautiful quartzite material from their stock, for our kitchen countertops, and I am completely delighted with the results. Our kitchen looks very sophisticated, and we get complements all the time. Thank you, Marble Unlimited for a job well done.

There's nothing like looking at huge slices of granite and marble in their stockyard behind the showroom. No samples will ever give you such a good idea of what you are buying. Daniel and the men working with the countertops seem to have some aesthetic feeling and love for the product. They were willing to work with us to give us this not quite finished countertop and mountain-themed backsplash.
