I left a heavy glass on a shelf above my Kitchen worktop in my caravan
and while travelling home the glass fell onto the worktop leaving an
indentation which has cracked the surface at the edges of the
indentation. Does anyone know how to repair such damage?
only three things you can do with a damaged laminate counter.
1. Live with it.
2. Remove and replace the laminate piece that is damaged. If it is a
small piece like an end cap, you are lucky. Laminate can be removed by
heating the laminate with an iron and peeling off the old stuff, you
need to soften the glue. I can't tell if this step would work for you
until I see the damage.
3. Buy a new top.
Thanks Steve. You have basically confirmed what I suspected. I have
seen some 'repair kits' on the market but I have been very skeptical
about them, especially as some seem to cost more than the price of a
new worktop. Your first suggestion, 'live with it' seems the most
sensible - thanks.
