Tips: How to Repair Burn Marks on Laminate Countertops
While burn marks are permanent damage, they don't have to mean the end of a good-looking countertop. For small burn areas, cut out the damage and use a filler product such as Seamfil (800-837-4971) or FormFill (888-536-0042).
For larger areas, cut out the damage and insert a Surface Save cutting board or trivet. Another option for counters with straight or beveled edges (not rounded in the front or coved in the back) is to resurface over existing laminate with a new piece of laminate.
