    Can I replace a section of my kitchen’s worktop?

    Kitchen Fitters

    Hello,
    I have a fairly new kitchen worktop that has become damaged in one section, which will need to be removed. I would consider just replacing this one section of the worktop if I can, instead of seeking an entirely new worktop style again after just 2 years.
    Do kitchen fitters offer partial worktop replacements as a service usually? And is it possible to replace this one worktop section without upsetting the rest of the fittings and worktop areas?
    My only alternative would be to look at getting a new worktop entirely, so I would rather replace the single damaged section somehow, if it’s possible.

    "It will depend if you can match the worktop up and also the joining of it may not look good. I suggest a new work surface but if you can match the worktop just get new length."

    "Hi In answer to your question it’s very difficult to remove one section and replace. It is possible if the surrounding sections were removed that a new joint might be possible."

    "Hi there,

    It is possible to replace sections or lengths of worktops however there are some risks involved which depend on how the worktop was installed, for instance when I do joints on my worktops I use both glue and bolts and should this be the case there is a high chance that upon separating the existing joint it may well damage the joining piece. Not to say I haven't been able to achieve this with no damages, just be prepared that it could end up that way.

    Hope this helps,
    John"
