Labrador granite laminate countertop is one of the finest facilities you can have in a kitchen. While single, unbroken granite is the obvious choice for a countertop, it’s not something a homeowner can generally tackle without professional help. If the existing Labrador granite laminate countertop is in good shape, you can tile right over it with the proper preparation.
Go over the laminate of the worktop with your vibrating pad sander and 80-grit sandpaper. Sand and the gloss surface completely. Wipe up the dust. Measure and mark the center of the length of the countertop. Cut several granite tiles at the height of your wet saw. Use your trowel to apply thin set mortar over the vertical front. You should still be able to see the lines through the mortar.

Set the cut ring in the mortar, starting on each side of the vertical line. Place spacers between the plates. Apply more thin-set mortar to the top of the table. Press tile along the front of the countertop, starting on each side of the line, so the leading edges of the horizontal plates cover the exposed sides of the vertical cut plates.
Spread the mortar over the rest of the top of the Labrador granite laminate countertop. Set the rest of the tiles in a grid pattern, working back from the front and cut the tiles at the ends of the worktop as required on your wet saw. Allow the plates that night. Remove the spacers. Pour plates with your grout float, pressing the grout into the spaces between the plates and scrape off the face.
