The previous homeowners to my home had apparently done some remodeling in the kitchen. I'm now finding out these cosmetic changes were not done very well so I'm having to replace certain items. I recently discovered that the countertops are actually a laminate or vinyl that they installed over....GRANITE! Who does that?! It appears to have been adheared with some type of heavy duty glue, as one area is now welting and exposing the granite....hence my discovery. My question is: I'm not sure in what condition the granite is but I'd much prefer to remove the laminate. I'm scared its badly damaged or what they may have been trying to cover up by doing this. What is your advice? Should I go ahead and rip up the laminate and expose possible issues or should I just leave it alone? The last thing I want to do is replace countertops if I don't need to.
