Laminate countertop edge repair


Had the laminate edge came off and broke loose. I cut it square...but now what's the best way to fix it?



I couldn't find a matching pattern.

Re-edge the entire length all the way around?

I have seen some "retro" metal edging.



Are these easy to do?

It is going to be easier to replace that edging with wood, trying to get HPL cut that straight and smooth to match up to the bottom of the slight over hang lip where the old edging was, is next to impossible. If you had the old piece you could cover the edging with a towel the use a hot iron to stick it back.

You will have to scrape the glue off the slight over hange before installing new edging.

That metal edge is a "T" type edging, you would have to slot the edge of the top to use that. You would have to remove the slight lip before you could slot.

Thanks, by wood you mean a thin veneer or a wood trim? If wood trim I was also thinking about that but when it gets to the space for the range, the space is very tight and no room for the thickness of two pieces of trim on either sides.

I don't think you would be happy with a veneer, it wouldn't hold up long. A thicker wood edge is what I had in mind. HPL would be tough to install without a gap where the top piece meets the edging.
