Can I Fix this Countertop? *Pics*


I was wondering if I can fix this with some type of glue. This is the kitchen counter with some type of laminate glued on it instead of granite.

I was wondering if there is some type of commercial strength glue I can use to glue the laminate back down or if I will have to replace it. I took pics with the flash on and off. It's a total of about 4 feet long (the lifting).

Hard to tell with your pics, but, I use a hot glue gun to fix separating laminate....

^^Sorry about the pics. I had to make them smaller in order to attach them.

Is that a small strip in on the back or the counter? You might add a back splash of a contrasting laminate to cover the loose piece. Tiling the backslash would do the same. Re-gluing it will last for awhile but not long. I would use contact cement carefully to re glue it.
