We have come home from a weekend away to find a water leak has come through from the bathroom into the kitchen through the ceiling. The water has dripped onto the newly laid worktops and has cause water damage to the tops. There is a section on the far right hand of the work top about 2 foot long that is swollen with water and the laminate has become unstuck at the edge. Our kitchen is a c shape with one continuous worktop (three strips bolted together having used standard worktop jig, biscuits, bolts, and glue etc) on all three walls. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to rectify this. Short of removing the entire work top and strarting again we are unsure that there is anything we can do at all!!
before you could even try and re glue that section the moisture has to be dried. Maybe start with a dehumidifier in the room. Maybe just maybe the swollen wood will go down.Then you could reattempt to use adhesive and weights on top to try and rebond the counter top. I don't know of anything else and its not to probable you would have desirable results.
