Can I Glue New Laminate Over Old Laminate?

0 0EmailPrintFollow

We are updating our laminate countertop with a faux granite laminate. Can the new laminate be placed directly on to the old laminate or should we remove the old counter top first?

Can I glue new laminate over old Laminate? The old laminate is worn, but is not coming off.

Yes, if the laminate has grooves or a pattern, there is a product that you spread on it first, so that the old pattern doesn't come through. I purchased this at Lowe's and it worked great. Don't remember the product name, sorry. (10/02/2006)

Yes, but you can't use just any type glue. What will work best is what is called a contact adhesive. (10/03/2006)

I tried, but it didn't work. I did everything I was supposed to do, and used the contact cement they recommend. It never stuck well and bubbles kept popping up. I wasted $200.00 doing this. Don't do it. (10/06/2008)
