Laminate countertops can be repaired and resurfaced at a fraction of the cost of replacement. The cracks and burns are repaired with a special plastic filler, then sanded smooth to fill in any rough or damaged areas. The counter is then sprayed with a special topcoat, which gives the appearance and durability of a new laminate countertop. The process usually takes four to five hours, and your kitchen will be ready to use the next day.
Apply wax to straight edges and skill saw bases for nice smooth cuts.
During construction, get the building stabilized with regard to temperature and humidity prior to installation of finish materials and interior trim.
For a quicker and more efficient paint job, don't overload the paintbrush or roller. If it drips, there's too much paint.
