This customer had a house they were updating to sale.we had actually done some refinishing at there neighbors home last year. The counters were in good shape just in need of some tlc.
On laminate tops we clean either with water based cleaners or lacquer thinner with scotch brite pads rinsing with cloth or paper towels.then we dull surface with 180 grit sandpaper and repair nicks and chips with epoxy filler. The corners are caulked with acrylic tub and tile.
The most time consuming is the taping off surrounding areas,the customer was replacing floors so not covering those saved some time. We used clff,a neutral that will go with a lot of decors. We also did both vanities in bathrooms and we will be going back to do the shower kits at a later time.
