A repair is achieved by disguising the damage. Laminate manufacturers' supply fillers that are color-matched for small holes. Reattach broken edging as shown.

Step 1

Apply Contact Adhesive

Apply contact adhesive to both the countertop edge and the broken section of laminate (Image 1).

Wait for it to become tacky and stick it in place — use masking tape to hold it securely (Image 2).

Finish the Repair

Once the adhesive has dried, remove the masking tape and use a pencil or crayon to disguise any white edges along the seam.
