Even the most durable countertops are susceptible to chips and cracks, and some countertops materials are more susceptible to damage than others. Laminate countertops are the most vulnerable to chips, cracks, scratches, and burns. Quartz countertops are typically the most durable, but even quartz countertops can be damaged sometimes.
If you have a laminate countertop with a small chip or crack, you can use laminate repair paste to repair it. This paste can be found at most hardware stores. For larger chips and cracks, you’ll want to use epoxy putty; once you’ve filled the hole and it has dried, you’ll want to sand it smooth.
If you have a small chip in your quartz countertop, you can use superglue for lighter countertops and pigmented epoxy resin for darker countertops. Clean the surface first, and then fill the chip with superglue or epoxy resin. Wait 24 hours for it dry before you use sandpaper to smooth the surface.
For any large chips or cracks, it’s best to call a countertop professional to come look at your countertops. You can also check to see if your countertop is under warranty. If so, definitely be sure to call your countertop supplier and tell them about the damage.
