Theo Campbell: All depends on how much this kit costs, as a new faux stone counter top isn't expensive.
Jj Ash: From a plumbers point of view, it's best to remove the sink and faucet. This will ensure uniformity where the coating passes under the fixtures. Also, if you decide to change the faucet to a different style in the future, you won't be left with any exposed, unfinished surfaces. Finally, this will also allow you to coat the edges of the cut-outs, adding waterproofing.
Kyle Pinette: can this be used on ceramic tile countertops ?
Mark H: Having done two kitchens with Rustoleum Transformations product, without even actually using this product I can tell this is a much simpler and almost idiot proof system. Not ever having seen the product first hand I can't say whether the look is better or worse, but I can tell you, you have many more color choices with this, unless Rustoleum has added more since I did those kitchens. With Rustoleum your working time gives you little room for error, since your expected to get the rather thick base coat applied evenly in just that one coat. Before it's dry ( like within a half hour )u have to thickly cover the entire surface with fake plastic flakes ( this is what gives the granite look ) very heavily. They give you a spreader tool, like a small garden hand spreader and you liberally and somewhat messily have to cover all surfaces thoroughly including the vertical back splashes and edges. After 24 hours you will come back and vacuum a ton of unattached flakes since it is just the very bottom layer that adheres to the color adhering base coat. Then you will do a lot of grueling sanding to supposedly get a near smooth surface, which is virtually impossible given the nature of the material. By the way, the spreader they supplied in my second job seized up entirely shortly in to using it. Luckily I had kept the spreader from my first job. Rustoleum is way over generous in the amount of flakes they give you and you'll have so much wasted product when completed. Unfortunately, they make up for that by not giving enough finish coat. For a truly professional job two coats of finish are definitely needed. My first kitchen I used the black base coat and one coat was almost sufficient. The second one was like a dark sandy color. The one coat, even though I applied it liberally just didn't give a truly finished looking sheen which my customer and I both agreed on. At least Rustoleum was kind enough to send a free quart of the finish after we called and complained. The second coat did make all the difference, but this was not Rustoleum's playbook. I would of definitely have gone with SpreadStone if I had been aware of it at the time.
fabian riquetti: HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU PAY FOR THIS PROCESSES ?
Scott Farrell: Can you use this on cultured marble?
Joseph McNulty: We are putting in new kitchen cabinets. We don't have a countertop picked out yet. We were going to just plywood, cement board and tile the countertop. If we chose to use your coating, can it be applied right to plywood??
supercooled: Is this available in Canada like home depot? Looks great!
Jim Johnson: One more thing about the countertop, I had ordered when they had a 5 color selection and now they expanded the color selection to 10. The video above is also very realistic and true. I was skeptical but yes it was as easy as it looks!.
Jim Johnson: I ordered this product and I live in Florida, it took a week to receive and that's good fast service and it's FREE shipping. I don't know what G Griffin is complaining about they had EXCELLENT customer service and answered all my questions professionally and with courtesy. In fact both my Aunt and Uncle ordered the product and received the same great service. My Aunt lives in Florida also and my Uncle in California. This product is heads above the Rustoleum product and much less $$$. It was also easier to apply and the result was fantastic. Countertop transformation in one weekend as they promised. I am considering using the RollerRock product they have for my Garage floor but that will wait until I have time to de-clutter. Thank you Daich Coatings! for a professional product at an affordable cost with excellent customer service.
Anne LiConti: Can you use this on one of those cultured marble bathroom counters?
Meara Harrington: I ordered the Tuscany a little over a month ago. I had been a little wary of starting the project, but it's gone smoothly so far. I'm practicing on a small countertop in my kitchen before I move over to the L shaped countertop. I plan on removing my sink completely. I'm replacing it with a new sink, but I would most likely have removed the sink regardless.
Geri W: Will SpreadStone work over cement board, the kind used as a base for tile? I want a cold baker's counter (laminate isn't cold the way stone and cement are).
