Laminate ‘top 5’ causes of damage

Laminate ‘top 5’ causes of damage

We compile ‘top 5’ regular offenders for damage to surfaces, so you can take steps to avoid them. But if you do have a surface that gets damaged, just remember the ‘F’ words, Fine Finishers.

Laminate worktops – Top 5 ‘watch out’

  • Toolboxes – For easy access, there’s no better place for a tradesman to put his tools than the worktop. For good measure, they drag the box across the worktop too!
  • Tilers – They just love to cut their tiles on a new worktop! So much more convenient as it saves getting the work bench out of the van!
  • High Gloss – These worktops mark easily and are more difficult to repair. Great care is needed when working with high gloss surfaces.
  • Razor blades – Clean and scratch in one simple procedure! Just don’t do it!
  • Protection – The biggest cause of scratches is by placing protection over dirty work surfaces. People then stand or lean on the worktops ‘because they are covered’. Make sure that a well protected worktop is not hiding scratches, damage, poor fitting or badly made joints, which are only to be revealed the day you need to complete!
