Cold Storage Damage

I was really bummed when I went out to our rig yesterday to discover a crack in our kitchen counter. We live in Minnesota and have had several spells of below zero temperatures, but I didn't realize that cold alone would cause this to happen! I have sent an e-mail to the Vendura people to see what they have to say about it but I'm not getting my hopes up about that. Has anybody else had this problem? What are my options?
Thanks,
Rod

Rod, While i was in storage in New England, the pop-up leaf on my kitchen counter cracked diagonally across and the piece needed to be replaced. The counter material I understand was some kind of polymer or hard plastic mounted on 3/4" plywood. It's not funny when these things happen but it's something that you indeed have to fix and that can be expensive. I hope that the manufacturer will help if there a way for them to do so. Hopefully they will at least respond that they can supply a replacement if one is needed.

Mine is Corian rather than Vendura, but my first stop would be a Lowes and/or local cabinet builder. Very often these synthetic material counter tops can be repaired to the point no one would know there was ever a problem.

As Paul mentions, most any good counter person can mix new "glue" and clamp while drying. Then resurface the fix.
