Countertop Installation

You are in the middle of building a new house. Suddenly, you’ve realized that your kitchen is missing something crucial – a countertop. Since the discovery, you can’t help but think about all the colors, materials and designs available for countertops. At the same time, your new countertop should be convenient to use.

If a kitchen is the heart of your home, a countertop is its most important vessel. None of your favorite dishes can be made without it. There wouldn’t be any place for your kitchen appliances .

Countertop installation with appliances

Bearing that in mind, you rushed to the nearest furniture store to see different kitchen countertops available. And you probably found what you needed – a beautiful countertop that suits your interior and matches the budget. However, another problem arose immediately after the purchase – you have no idea how to install kitchen countertops.

To be fair, it’s not quite the skill you would have to imply every day as a non-contractor. Therefore, performing a countertop installation yourself may be more difficult than you think. First of all, it’s time-consuming. You’d waste at least a day of your life on a countertop installation. Secondly, you’d have to buy some necessities, such as tools and materials, so this DIY project can turn out to be more expensive than a professional installation.

Our company offers professional countertop repair in your area.

The repair process heavily depends on the type of damage. If the problem is minor, you can fix your countertop easily. For example, to get rid of the stains from heated cookware, you can use simple tools and materials, such as toothpaste and a toothbrush.Depending on the material, the solution to this problem varies. On a stainless steel countertop club soda is more useful than toothpaste, and on a porcelain counter a mixture of baking soda and water is the best.

Countertop damage from heated cookware

Even though many countertop problems can be solved without professional help, there are still situations in which that kind of intervention is required. If your countertop is ruptured, it should be professionally repaired with adhesive or filler that matches the original material.

Scratches or chips on the surface of a countertop usually get fixed similarly.

If your granite countertop isn’t shiny anymore because of inappropriate cleaning products, a specialist should buff and polish it to make your counter look new. If you need quality countertop repair services, contact FixerJoe.

Countertop Installation and Repair Cost

The average cost for a new countertop installation is $1,500 to $4,500. The price varies because many factors should be taken into consideration before making an accurate estimate: your size and style preferences, the number of cutouts, the price for the material, as well as edge and corner treatments and labor costs.

Countertop material prices usually fit in the range of $1 to $190 per square foot. On average, a granite countertop will cost you $90 per sq. ft. to install. The price for a marble countertop ranges from $40 to $100 per sq. ft. The quote for labor to install natural stone countertops is $35 to $85 per hour.

For an average kitchen counter, labor costs alone can range from $600 to $1,500. Countertop installers in your area will charge $250 to $500 for a bathroom counter installation. Installing kitchen countertops can take up to 20 hours, while a bathroom counter installation usually takes less than 10 hours.

The cost of a quartz countertop is $145 per sq. ft. on average, while the price for a concrete counter is usually around $120 per sq. ft., including labor. A wooden countertop costs from $30 to $170 per sq. ft. to install, and a ceramic one is $70 per sq. ft. on average, including labor.

One of the cheapest and, therefore, the most popular materials is laminate. Expect to spend around $1,210 on the installation of an average-sized kitchen countertop made of laminate and twice as much on installing an epoxy one. Stainless steel is considered a high-end material, so the price for its installation is even higher than the cost of a natural stone one.

The price for a stainless steel countertop installation varies between $4,000 and $11,250. The average cost of edge treatment is $5 per lin. ft. As there are many types of edging, the price for it varies. Edging tiles cost anywhere between $0.50 and $30 per piece. Expect to pay from $55 to $135 per corner to round them all out.

Countertop repair cost ranges from $200 to $600. The price mainly depends on the material and the extent of the damage. While the cost of a countertop made of laminate, epoxy and tile varies between $100 and $600, the price for a marble and granite countertop repair can go up to $1,000.

Homeowners usually spend $350 on a cracked countertop repair. Fixing scratches is even less costly – it is about $200. Resurfacing a countertop usually costs $150 to $1,000. If your counter is affected by water, expect to spend the same amount of money. The cost of countertop refinishing ranges between $300 and $500, and the price for polishing usually is $550. Most repairmen charge between $50 and $100 per hour for their labor, excluding the cost of supplies and materials.

Q&A

It depends on your budget, lifestyle and interior. Natural stone counters are durable and look luxurious, but they are costly. Solid surface countertops are long-lasting and less expensive.

However, they can be damaged easily. Laminate counters are one of the cheapest, but they are susceptible to chipping. Perfect countertop material just does not exist. Therefore, it is all up to you. If you are not sure about what material to choose, call FixerJoe. One of our experienced contractors will figure out the best option for you.
