Beautifully replaced countertops in a Baton Rougue, LA kitchen

When should countertops be replaced?

For homeowners that have never remodeled kitchen countertops before, there might be some question as to when countertops should be replaced. Are there signs that let you know it’s time to do so? Should they be replaced every “certain number” of years?

The answer, in general, actually depends on the material you’ll be replacing. For instance, Formica will require replacing more often than marble countertops. And the signs leading up to replacement will be different as well. Read on to find out more about the process.

Information for replacing kitchen countertops

There are some specific reasons for replacing your counters, not the least of which is an upgrade in décor. Your granite countertops might be in superior condition, but you should know that you do not have to live with them if you want a different interior design scheme instead.

On the other hand, if your surfaces are stained, excessively worn, or burnt, replacement is undoubtedly going to be necessary. Some surfaces can indeed be repaired or refinished, but replacement is always an option.

If your counters are cracked, especially if they are laminate or wood, replacement is always the best option. This not only relieves the aesthetic appeal but also creates a healthier, more hygienic surface for food handling and serving.

Finally, you will almost always consider replacing these key features when you sell your home. Upgrading to granite, quartz, quartzite, or marble can not only make these spaces look more appealing, but they can also significantly increase the value of your home. The result is a higher return on your investment once the sale is made.
