How Do I Remove a Laminate Kitchen Countertop and Backsplash?

Q: How do I remove a laminate kitchen countertop and backsplash? I want to replace it, but the existing countertop is stuck in place, even though it wiggles loosely and I see no fasteners.

A: During construction the countertop might have been installed as bare plywood in the kitchen, and the laminate sheets might have been applied afterward. If this is the case, then the plywood deck is probably screwed to the cabinet base, and the screw heads are concealed behind the laminate veneer. Use a putty knife to chisel or pry away the laminate to expose the fasteners, and then back out the screws to release the countertop.
