Upgrade This Faux-Stone Countertop Material
Before Selling Your Home
When selling your home, maximizing your resale value is key. While some countertop materials like marble will increase your value, others like laminate or solid surface will not.
Though laminate and synthetic solid surface counters look like real stone, they are less durable and prone to heat damage, leading to a lower resale value than true stone counters.
On average, marble countertops will cost $3,000 and granite $3,250, with an average ROI of 25%. Plus, they could help you compete with higher-valued homes in your neighborhood.
To ensure the remodel would be the best for your home, have a professional help you calculate the cost of replacing your counters versus your predicted return on investment first.
