Not really.  If the contractor is very careful and you are really lucky he might be able to pull them out and then reinstall them after the new cabinets are installed.  A lot of this will have to do with how well the counters were installed in the first place.  Also, the existing countertops may not line up with the new cabinets exactly in some areas as well as they do now.  The better option is to have the cabinets refaced, leaving the boxes and tops in place.  Unlless you have deteriorating particle board cabinets you should be able to get a carpenter to do this.  If you decide to remove the countertops and install new cabinets factor in new tops and be pleasantly surprised if they can be reinstalled afterall.  Realize you probably won't find a contractor willing to gurantee not damaging the tops.  If you do, dig in and research him well.  He likely doesn't have enough experience.

IF dirty enough to make for a musty odor, then paint won't stick to them properly anyway. Paint is not your solution - you probably need a Deep Cleaning. Try to pin down what types of smell it is - if damp, mildewy; rotten food; or musty fabric - will help guide you to the source maybe. Another thing to do is keep all doors closed for a full day when outside temp is such that furnace and A/C can be turned off - then walk around the house, sniffing - preferably with 2 people - and see if one room is the major contributor. I have played this game, and found all the following as sources of musty smells: 1) linen in a closet without ventilation going slightly mildewy 2) water leak in walls or floors enough to cause mold but not drywall staining or visible water 3) carpets needing cleaning 4) water leak in bath or kitchen leaking under floor, causing mold there which is not pronounced in smell because under the flooring 5) attic mildew/mold from leaks or moisture condensation on insulation/wood 6) moldy plants outside - left in garden/flower bed in fall, so rotted in winter/spring 7) clothes in closets touching outside wall, so in very cold weather acted as insulator and let freezing front come to inside of wall, causing frost and moisture to buildup there from the inside moisture, eventually causing mildew/mold (same process as condensation/ice on inside of windows with curtains over them) 8) failure to clean behind kitchen appliances and under sink, or under washer/dryer/dishwasher at least when repaired or changed out 9) heavy lint accumulation in bathroom fan going mildewy 10) grease trap in kitchen exhaust fan never cleaned 11) washing machine going moldy - run a cycle of towels or such with bleach and Borax 12) the number one cause I have found - clothes stacked in closets or hope chests or such for decades get very musty even if clean and ventilated

     As long as the counter is big enough Corian is one of the easier ones to work with. Since it does not have the ground or crushed stone that some of the other material have you can work with normal woodworking tools. A saw with a fine tooth carbide blade and a professional grade router with the proper shaped carbde bit can be used if the edge needs finishing. A belt sander helps on cuts also. The only problem you might have is if you need the joint kits for seaming as I dont think you can buy them.

     When Corian first came out I could buy the slabs and fabricate my own tops and then Dupont went to a certified distributor system and would no longer sell to those of us that had been working with it for years. I will admit that they did have reasons for this as not all that were working with the product were doing it right.

brought sample doors to be installed in old kitchen. Installer and carpenter
Poplar Bluff Cabinet Refacers Provider Name Locked
began installing about 6 weeks later. I supplied backsplash for installer. New cabinets were beautiful, but existing cabinets, which had been built in 1960, still had all the rough wood and years of contact paper. The company said that they were only contracted to reface existing, but the interior looked horrendous, and I ended up painting them and re-cutting new shelves myself. With all I spent, I would have thought they could at least paint to match the new stuff and replaced the shelving. They even had to be told about leftover construction debris needing removal. I paid another painter to repaint kitchen when cabinet work was done, since evidently they did not include painting when finished.

The owner and his crew members interactions from day one with the individuals on the job site were amazing and heart warming. They were professional and considerate at all times. They always had a smile on their faces and were polite. As for the painting and the skill of the crew, they were awesome. They helped us figure out our color scheme and came up with wonderful ideas. This wasn't an average paint job. We were designing a unique environment with a lot of color! These painters were very skilled with their straight lines and they payed very good attention to small details. There was a lot of unique painting done by the company. They were the best priced of any of the bids that we recieved.

was punctual each time she scheduled a visit to my house. She estimated the job of refinishing/staining a banister and cabinet and her price was very reasonable. She was able to juggle her calendar to fit my job in within a few weeks of signing the contract.

did a great job and explained each step along the way. She finished sooner than planned and her work is excellent. All of my friends who have seen the banister and cabinet cannot believe the amazing job she did and will probably be calling her soon! She is a professional with a great personality and working with her was a very pleasant experience.

Our cabinets are rich looking, attractive, and absolutely beautiful. He is truly a dedicated professional, who explained each step of the refacing process to us. Additionally, the kitchen was cleaned every day, leaving little or no dust, particles behind. There was hardly any odor, if any, left in the home. I appreciate
