My landlord is gonna kill me.

The back part of our counter came Unglued or something. Is there a easy way to fix this or does the entire counter need replaced.

I'll take a pic for replies.

Thanks

You should be able to use some construction adhesive to glue it back down.  If it came unglued, it doesn't sound like your fault.  Why not have your LL fix it?

Doesn't look like your fault. Looks like it wasn't installed properly.

Try liquid nails first, that should do the trick.

Just glue it back on.  It will also need some type of water repellent caulking between it and the wall if it's part of a backsplash behind the sink.

Yeah, gorilla glue or wood glue. It doesn't look like it was a quality job to begin with, so its not as much your fault as you think.
