I hate my granite kitchen counter top.


Golly Gee Willakers Complete W&D Sorry to have forced you to stop whatever earth shattering thing you were doing to give a flippant reply.

I'll go elsewhere for my answers ..

OMGosh.... I think I would be more worried about getting RID of the bugs and roaches before worrying about a glass breaking on the counter top. Of course, if you are leaving teeny-tiny shards of glass behind, maybe you will cut their little legs off.

And, I seriously doubt you will not harm the granite by gluing down any kind of laminate. But, I could be wrong.... who knows?

Good luck.... I hope you get this conundrum figured out.

Never had someone complain about a high end component in an insect infested house. It's usually the bugs that get the main concern. It would be moronic to cover the granite, permanently. Short term, I would cover it with sponges to save the glassware. And save the feet of the roaches. I'd also hire a cleaning service and an exterminator.

I knew that kitchen granite increases home's beauty. It is durable, stylish, elegant and you enjoy a lot. But getting information from you, I am surprised.

It was quite the story indeed. She absolutely hated her granite counter tops. Glass broke into tiny shards when they tipped over and were hard to get up, the counter tops sucked all the heat out of anything you set on them and of all things, you couldn't "see" all the bugs and roaches unless they were moving.

Was there any kind of covering she could glue to the counter top that could be removed later and not damage it?

That wasn't verbatim, but the "gist" of her original post.

I've got is saved for posterity, but since she changed her original post and I didn't actually copy it in my reply, I should probably leave it there.

Yep. That's why they turn the lights down in expensive restaurants.
Some people look better if you can't see them.

Oh, darn, that one should have been saved. One can only assume she was a demobrat. Feel sorry for the hubby.....if she has one.

Another example of how inappropriate replies runs off new members.
