    Laminate countertops rarely last forever.

    How old is yours?

    It may not be easy to try to repair it, and considering the price of materials and tools, it might be more cost effective to purchase a new one.

    Please post a picture of your counter tops so that we can see what type of damage they have and how extensive it is.

    What sort of countertop do you have? Is it damaged?

  • You may want to visit your local home improvement store to see the options for countertops.

    Hello. Could you post a photograph of your actual situation. That might give us more clues on how to give an appropriate answer to your inquiry.

    If they are formica, you might consider replacing the material but not the wooden part.

  • If they're badly damaged or fairly old, it may be best to replace them if you can afford it. I would research some different places near you and get some quotes/estimates, so you can consider what material you'd like to use and determine a budget.

    You didn't say what is wrong with the countertops but you can paint them if they are laminate for an update or you could replace them whatever works best for you

    Look around to decide what you would like first and what works within your budget. I would go to a tile store or places like Home Depot etc. if you want to replace with laminate just pick out a color or style and get someone to install for you

    they will make a template first then bring in the finished project

    Nancy could you please post a picture. You did not state if they are laminate, stone or tiles. There are fixes for these but we need to know what is wrong.

    Hi! Do you have the budget to replace them? If not, repair or updating is an option. Do you have any pictures?

    I just did a really awesome DIY on my cultured marble bathroom vanity top with a Giani marble countertop kit. They know look like marble with a glossy finish! I just started using the same product on my old laminate kitchen counters, and they look great!
