COUNTER TOP RELAMINATING
In sort, replace them. This question comes up a lot so I'll be brief.
Usually, it's a 'problem' to glue a NEW laminate to an existing substrate (after removing the existing laminate.) It won't hold.
Others may come back w/more info so stick around. My best to ya and hope this helps.

This one is easy. I've done it many times with great success. First,use a belt sander with a 100 grit belt to roughen the entire surface. Then continue on, assuming you possess the finishing tools. Make sure you dry fit all your cuts first.
Contact cement is a wonderful thing and although the flammable type has a lot of fumes to deal with I think that it holds better than the latex based type. This is based on my experiences re-doing tops of this type. You may, however, want to clamp the edges for 24 hours even when using a good glue. Good luck.......Mark hammond
