I think its poor engineering that they used a laminated wood counter on what is an exposed surface outdoors. Should have been a solid surface, moisture friendly counter top. I say go for it and see what happens. I had my counter replaced right away due to poor workmanship and it was a royal pain. Apparently no two are cut the same and 2 replacements would not fit properly.
