Here are a few tips on repairing some of the most common kitchen countertop issues!

Ruptured Kitchen Countertop

Kitchen countertops which were installed over an unleveled surface, were poorly jointed, or didn’t dry well can cause ruptures.

To resolve that, you may want to try reconnecting the countertop surface utilizing the manufacturer’s suggested adhesive. If the kitchen countertop presents cracks over the surface, cut the crack wider, enough so that it may be stuffed with materials resembling that of the surface, and then buffer and polish it.  If a countertop was punctured by a heavier object, you could drill a hole, make it round, then stuff it with special adhesive, the same color as the countertop.

Crack on the Corner of Fixture or Appliance

Normally, this problem is caused by a faulty installation without any support underneath the countertop. It might occur in front of the sink, stove, or in an unsupported, large area of the kitchen countertop. In order to prevent this, make sure that the cabinet in which the stove is placed contains openings for heat dissipation. Be sure to also check that extra supports were installed beneath these spaces.

Water or Sink Leakage

If the sink was installed and not properly sealed all of the way around the joint, water might seep into the inside of the kitchen cabinets and cause damage. Check that the sink was properly sealed using silicone all around the sink joint and look at the drainage pipes. Check dimensions in which the water supply lines are situated so you’re able to plan ahead and have the correct openings for the water pipes. If there’s incorrect measurements, carry a router and make some oval openings, and allow the rough-in to be into place. Seal around the openings using foam or caulk to keep away pests from kitchen cabinets.
