He just wanted countertops that were elegant looking, maintenance free and inexpensive compared to replacing your countertops. This is a story of a couple looking for a solution to their dilemma and ended up being the solution.
CrystalTop Finish was created by Zack Thomas and his wife, Laura, applied her marketing skills to expand CrystalTop Finish and take it to the next level.
In 2007, Zack was a chaplain for a trucking company and on the side he would flip houses for extra income. The houses he bought always needed something done with the countertops. He wasn’t redesigning the kitchen so the countertops just needed updated. But Granite was just too expensive and you couldn’t recoup your money out of the sale of the house for the cost of the Granite. Zack was looking for an inexpensive alternative to replacing the countertops and could not find a solution. He thought it didn’t make any sense to tear out countertops just because they were stained or an ugly color. From that point he determined to find a process of refreshing the countertops instead of replacing them. Zack spent several years of research and, working with a chemist through trial and error, he developed the perfect sealer for countertops – a sealer that gave a gloss finish, was extremely durable and could be applied in one coat and be ready to use in a short period of dry time. While going through the development of the sealer he created the proprietary coloration process and unique patterns which is now CrystalTop Finish. The CrystalTop Finish process not only bonds to Formica and Corian but also bonds to tile, wood and cement. Zack has created tile borders in the shower that match the bathroom countertop colors and pattern!
His wife, Laura, was so impressed with Zack’s product she started marketing the product to expand the business to get new customers. Over the years, they have had hundreds of satisfied customers and even had people contacting them from outside their service area to inquire about CrystalTop Finish. As a result, they have decided to expand CrystalTop Finish beyond Central Florida. Now that Zack has a proven system, they are now in the process of finding and training up CrystalTop affiliates throughout the U.S. so they too can provide elegant looking, maintenance free and inexpensive countertops. And the affiliates can have a lucrative business to provide financial stability for themselves.
What makes CrystalTop Finish different from other countertop businesses is we don’t tear out the customer’s Formica or Corian countertops. With CrystalTop Finish we can give new life to existing countertops and create a custom granite, marble or quartz look at a fraction of the price. This is not a spray-on material. This is an actual custom coloration process that gives the look of custom stone. There are other companies that refinish or resurface your countertops but you have very little choice of colors and no ability to customize the look of your countertop. And those companies do not offer a 10-Year warranty on their service.
Plus CrystalTop counters are usually done in one day! That means very little down time.
Zack is excited to help people who call him and complain about their ugly or outdated countertops because he knows he has the solution to their countertop needs. And when he finishes his customer’s countertops, he loves to hear them say that their CrystalTop counters exceeded beyond what they even imagined.
When LauraI follows up with their customers, she just loves it when the customer tells her how their CrystalTop Counters makes them so happy when they walk into the room and see them . She has even had customers who pay above their invoice because they are so impressed with their CrystalTop counters.
Zack prides himself on being professional. This means he is on time, courteous, listens to the desires of the customer and makes sure everything is cleaned up when he leaves. And this is what you can expect with every CrystalTop Affiliate as well.

How much does it cost?
Whenever we are talking about the cost, first we need to compare the alternatives to our process. Let’s compare the cost and the process to replace an existing countertop with another countertop whether it be granite or manufactured stone like quartz and what is involved.
Countertop Replacement process and cost with Granite or Quartz
The existing countertops need to be torn out. In order to do this all backsplash needs to be
removed. Most houses have a typical four inch backsplash around the countertop. This will have to be removed. In doing this many times the drywall is going to be damaged from the removal process. This will need to be repaired or covered over with an upgraded backsplash to cover the damage. Then all sinks need to be removed. This entails detaching all plumbing which a plumber is which incurs additional cost. What if you just replaced the sink and want to keep the same sink? You still have the cost of removal and reinstallation. Then the existing countertop is removed piece by piece. This causes a mess, unnecessary dust and an extra expense. Many countertop fabricators will need to remove the existing countertop to create a proper template for the new countertop. This means that you will be without a usable kitchen for several days while the countertop is being manufactured.
Once countertops are removed the new countertops are then installed. Any seams where the countertops come together will then be filled in with an colored epoxy to match the counters. Sinks will be installed and all plumbing will be reattached. Backsplash will then be installed and any drywall repair will be done to complete the process.
How long do I not have a functional kitchen with countertop replacement? Depending on the installer you could be down from 3 days to several weeks. On average a fifty-five square foot countertop kitchen replacement with granite or quartz will cost you $3,500-$5,000+.
