Stop accepting common damage.

During the walkthrough after the turnover of a condo, duplex, or apartment, it’s inevitable to find damage. While certain wear and tear on surfaces is to be expected, it doesn’t have to be accepted. Repairing surfaces is an alternative to accumulating damage until the entire surface requires costly replacement. Repairing surfaces maintains the quality aesthetic of your residence while offering a more budget-friendly solution than letting surfaces degrade to the point of needing to be replaced.

Here are some common areas of damage to check during the turnover process.


Cabinet doors are often scratched, worn, or peeled on the outside, as well as on the edges of closures. Surfaces anywhere near water face particular risk of damage: under-the-sink cabinets in the bathroom or kitchen, and kitchen or vanity drawers. Surface Experts can rejuvenate kitchen and bath cabinets, giving them a fresh look while keeping the original aesthetic.


Damage and wear are most common in high traffic areas, such as entryways and doorways into kitchens and bathrooms. Scratches and gouges are common in the living room around sofas and chairs as well as in bedrooms under dressers and beds. Surface Experts can repair these scratches and scrapes on hardwood floors and LVP, as well as torn or ripped vinyl, or cracked stone or ceramic tile floors.


Countertops are one of the most-used surfaces in a residence, so it’s no surprise they often have the most damage. Check for scrapes, scratches, and signs of discoloration. Laminate countertops often peel, bubble, or discolor from heat, or have chipped edges. Stone countertops often crack near the seams, chip near the sink, or stain near the cooktop. Surface Experts can repair damage to laminate, stone or solid surface counters, matching the original color, texture, and sheen.


Glass cooktops are another common area of damage, with scratches and buildup of burned food or hard water on the burners. Surface Experts can grind and polish this damage right out, offering a quick and inexpensive alternative to costly replacements. Stainless steel appliances such as fridges or dishwashers are also prone to scratches, and Surface Experts can also polish those away, returning the surface to a pristine appearance.

Surface Experts saves you money while maintaining surface quality. Common damage does not have to accumulate.
