Granite countertops are stunning and highly sought after by homeowners. However, the countertop replacement process can often be time-consuming and a bit messy. That is why many homeowners have started to turn to granite overlays as an alternative. They provide a new look without the cost and hassle of a complete replacement. But are they worth the investment? Let’s explore the pros and cons of granite overlays and help you decide if they’re the right choice for your home.
What Are Granite Overlays?
Granite overlays are a thin layer of granite that adheres to the top of your existing countertops. At Granite and TREND Transformations, our granite countertops are engineered to last. We offer strong, durable granite overlays in a wide range of colors and styles.

Cons of Granite Overlays
With so many fantastic benefits to granite overlays, there must also be some cons, right? We are happy to say there really isn’t any con to choosing granite overlays. That being said, there is one important note:
Granite overlays are not necessarily suitable for all countertops. For an overlay to work, they need a smooth, flat, stable surface underneath. Without that, the overlays may not adhere properly to the existing surface. So if your current countertop is damaged or uneven, granite overlays may not be your best option. Our team can inspect your existing countertops and determine if your kitchen or bathroom countertops are a good candidate for granite overlays. Our experts will walk you through the entire process, from design to installation, so you will know exactly what to expect.
