Things to know before you get started.
6 Steps to Hiring a Countertop Pro
  1. 1. Decide on replacement versus repair

    Types of countertop wear and tear may include water damage, oil stains, chipped surfaces and laminate that has dulled or peeled over the years.

  2. 2. Discuss damage

    Check for signs of damage under the edges, around the sink and under the drawers. Having a better idea about the type of repair required helps you to choose the right pro.

  3. 3. Stay local

    Search for countertop repair and maintenance professionals who operate in your area.

  4. 4. Get the details

    Call potential countertop repair experts and check if they are available to service your countertop material. Some specialize in natural materials, while others only work on engineered countertops.

  5. 5. Lock down specifics

    Ask about whether their fees include the materials needed for the project. Discuss your pro’s availability, whether they are insured and if they give guarantees.

  6. 6. Ask about maintenance

    It's possible that some of the repairs you require can be mitigated in the future with proper maintenance. Ask your pro about steps you both can take to protect your countertop material.
