I have just finished installing new cabinetry in our home office. Now
I'm ready to order the laminate counter top, but I don't know the best
source. Should I just go with Home Depot, or should I try to contact a
specialist? What's the best way to find a specialist?
Home Depot charges a measuring fee and an installation fee, will also
allow me measure and install myself, but of course I accept more risk
(bad measurements, etc.) Is this difficult? I'd like to keep costs
The key issue I'm concerned about is that one wall that the counter top
will be mounted against is not very straight. It backs up to the
laundry room, and carries plumbing to the upstairs bathrooms, and is
'wavy' as a result. Is this as simple as getting several measurements
along several points along the wall? What are some techniques for
compensating for the wavy wall? We don't plan to use a backsplash. I
prefer to not have to use quarter round trim.
