These five key projects have tremendous return-on-investment.

Many people include home upgrade projects in their New Year’s resolution list of promises. Experts at Daich Coatings, the leader in DIY stone products, recommends five top projects for homeowners interested in making a major home improvement impact for a minimal investment in 2023.

“These five key projects have tremendous return-on-investment,” says Peter Daich, president of Daich Coatings. “Best of all, they have the power to beautifully transform space in the home while making people feel really good about their amateur DIY skills.”

For the two most popular rooms in the home — the kitchen and bath — Daich recommends resurfacing countertops with shimmering mineral accents. Rather than going the expensive route of granite countertops, Daich Coatings offers two different DIY kits that will result in either a textured or smooth finish to transform countertops.

Project #1 – LuxROCK™ Solid Surface Granite Countertop Kit – Available in sizes to cover either 20 square feet (for a bathroom) or 40 square feet (for a kitchen), this six-step project results in a smooth, glimmering granite surface. Stunning mineral highlights transform countertops and bring great satisfaction to DIYers. Available in five granite colors.

Project #2 – SpreadStone™ Mineral Select™ Countertop Refinishing Kit – Covering up to 40 square feet of countertop, this kit delivers a textured multi-colored decorative stone finish with shimmering mineral accents and color highlights found in natural mined rock. Use also on tabletops, bartops and other surfaces. Available in 10 decorative colors, this three-step project can be done by even the most novice DIYer.

For the most “visited” room of the home — the garage — Daich suggests a total resurfacing of the floor to make it both attractive and safe from slips and falls.

Project #3 – DaiHard® MAX Industrial Strength Epoxy Floor Coating Kit– DIYers can cover up to 250 square feet of ugly interior concrete surface with a tough, glossy high-performance finish with this inclusive kit. The two-part epoxy formula is easy to apply by roller or squeegee and can upgrade floor surfaces in garages, laundry rooms and basements. Available in two colors with optional decorative vinyl flakes that help create a slip-resistant surface.

To keep other surfaces around the home safe — like patios, walkways, pool decks, steps and porches — Daich proposes adding an anti-slip coating.

Project #4 –Trac-Safe® Anti-Slip Sealer – With anti-slip ratings up to twice the OSHA standard, TracSafe provides aggressive anti-slip performance with all-weather durability. Simply roll down two coats of the product a few hours apart to allow it to dry. The clear coat strengthens and protects surfaces, while also helping to protect the pedestrians who walk on it from slips and fall mishaps. Its high-performance, odorless water-based technology bonds firmly to all types of flooring materials, from concrete, masonry, stone and pavers, to tile, vinyl, linoleum and pre-painted surfaces —indoors and out.

Finally, for the fifth key project of 2023, Daich recommends homeowners upgrading the look of their home exteriors by personalizing concrete surfaces.

Project #5 -SpreadStone™ Decorative Concrete Resurfacing Kit –DIYers can unlock their creative talents with this all-in-one kit that transforms a boring walkway into a stunning stone sidewalk. Use grout line stencil tape and different layers of coatings to personalize your surface. Select from kits covering 100- or 400-square-feet and from five different colors. Can be used on porches, pool decks, patios, steps… and even on interior surfaces.

“We believe these will be the top five projects that DIYers will tackle in 2023,” says Daich. “Naturally we have dozens of other products and projects to choose from, but these five seem to call out to people. Any level of DIYer can tackle these projects and gain outstanding results. Perhaps that’s why their popularity continues to grow!”

Daich Coatings products are available online at The Home Depot® and Lowe’s®. They can also be purchased (with free shipping) directly from Daich Coatings.
