Can New Laminate for Kitchen Countertops Be Applied Over existing Laminate?

Answered by Brendan ~ January 19, 2010 ~ 1 Comments » | Respond to this question

Some of my Chatanooga, TN, kitchen countertops were scoured too hard and have scratches. I'm thinking of replacing them myself, as I made laminate countertops for my workshop. Can new laminate be applied over existing, or must I also make new kitchen countertops?

Laminate CountertopsI would not recommend trying to glue new laminate over old.

Generally laminates are glued to a wooden sub straight with contact cement. From my experience, I have not had a whole lot of luck with anything sticking very well to laminate surfaces. I think you will be much happier in the long run if you start over with new countertops.
