The 'Conditions' Have To Be Just Right ...

In reply to Installing new laminate to counter top by DAVID REED on January 8th, 2001 07:42 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi David,

In short, assuming your existing countertops are laminate (as opposed to butcherblock or something), there are a couple of things that you need to be sure of. One is the condition of the EXISTING counertops, and two, bonding the NEW countertop to the existing one.

You may find books out there that talk about how to do this job. It's important that you find out HOW to bond the new top to the old one based on YOUR specific (old and new) countertops. I have a couple of links to get you started.

How-to For Kitchen Countertops Book and Assessing and Preparing Your Countertops For Refacing

You MAY find out that you can't do this job based on the 'condition' of your tops. My best to ya and hope this helps.
