Frequently Asked Questions
How is it done
With this kitchen, we not only resurfaced the benchtop but also resurfaced the cupboard doors and the splashback tiles, giving the entire kitchen a complete makeover.
First we repair any defects and clean the entire benchtop with our purpose cleaners
We then put a prime coat over the benchtop
The chosen fleck is then applied over the prime coat
The hardener coat is the last coat to be applied, giving you that high gloss shine to the benchtop
Is it safe?
Most definitely. EP Acrylic coatings are ISOCYNATE FREE making it safe for both applicator and consumer.
How durable is it?
Our coatings are designed for their intended use. However, just like a brand new surface, a refinished surface can be cracked or chipped if it is abused.
How long will it last?
A bathroom or kitchen fixture refinished with EP Acrylic coatings should easily last 5-10 years or longer with proper care and maintenance.
Will my refinished surface look painted?
Definitely NOT. You probably will not be able to tell the difference. The EP Acrylic system will make that old chipped, stained or colour-dated item look New again.
How do you actually do it?
We apply a high performance, purpose designed, Acrylic Polymer coating over the existing surface by simply spraying it on.
What surfaces can be refinished?
Bathtubs, Vanities, Shower Bases, Ceramic Tiles, Bench Tops, Kitchen Cabinets, Metal, Plastic, Wood and Laminated Surfaces. To sum it up, we can give your entire kitchen and bathroom a complete new look.
How do I clean my refinished surface?
As with all porcelain, enamel and plastic laminated surfaces, you should use only liquid cleaners that do not contain abrasives, bleach or chlorine. We will leave you with a care and maintenance sheet.
What is the surface is damaged?
Chips and cracks can usually be repaired during the preparation stage of the refinishing process. If you do damage our EP Acrylic coating finish it can be repaired.
Do you use any dangerous acids to prepare the surface?
No. Our high tech chemical cleaners and bonding agent eliminate the need to use out dated dangerous acids.
How long before I can use my refinished surface?
The refinished surface is normally ready to use in 24 hours from the time we have finished.
How much will it cost?
Prices vary depending on the condition of the surface, but refinishing will always be a fraction of the replacement cost. We offer a No Obligation Free Quote to the Bundaberg area, all other areas we charge a travel fee but as an incentive we refund the cost if you go ahead with the job.
Will the process cause me inconvenience?
Very little. In fact, when compared to the inconvenience of tearing out the plumbing, pulling up floors and demolishing walls the inconvenience is almost negligible.
