In this regard, can you use self leveling concrete for countertops?

In addition to flooring, self-leveling concrete is popular for concrete countertops. The product is highly fluid and pourable, reducing installation time frames. The end result is a concrete countertop with strength and low permeability. It is compatible with limestone aggregates.

Additionally, can you put concrete over Formica? First I sanded the surface of the existing formica countertop with a coarse sandpaper (the cement will hold better to a rough surface). Next, I wiped the countertop clean with a damp rag and let dry. I found it really helpful to use painter's tape a little above where the top of the backsplash meets the wall tile.

can you laminate over existing countertop?

Laminate countertops are attractive affordable and you can install the material yourself. If installing new sheet laminate over old laminate, material, first thoroughly sand and clean the old surface.

Can you put concrete over granite countertops?

There are so many options, it's easy to change when you get bored of it and your granite doesn't get ruined. I'm afraid concrete will have unwanted affects on it unless you cover the granite and seperately make concrete countertops to sit on the existing granite. Concrete countertops are quite a challenge to make.
