How to Install a Formicah Countertop
Remove your old countertop.
Put the new one in place to see if it fits well.
Depending on the shape of your countertop, you may need some help. For straight countertops, you could probably complete the installation by yourself. But for "L" or "U" shaped Formica countertops, you may need a couple of friends to help out.
If your walls are not quite straight, you may have to scribe the countertop. You'll scribe on the backsplash area.
Continue to scribe, measure, and put in place until it fits well.
Once it fits well, screw it in place. To do this, get screws that are large enough to screw into the upper portion of the cabinets and into the countertop, without going all the way through.
Reinstall your sink and stovetop.
