Generally speaking the roofline actually determines where the gutters are supposed to be. Whenever there is water flow coming off the home there should be gutters and it should be all around the home. So, unless your home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and it has the proper underground drainage built-in, you should contact your local gathering contractor.

Boy I would not go that.  Hold off on the project until you have the money to do it right.  Then, pull off the formica, repair the water damage and install new countertop

For what you will spend in time and effort on this type of repair, I would suggest you look at granite as an option.  Many local fabricators are offering specials on material that (depending on your sq. feet) could be very close to what you spend on recovering in formica.

I would find a local distributor of the product and they will have a list of preferred fabricators.  Please tell them it is commercial not residential work.

We used a product called GianiGranite. It is a DIY paint process, but covers the formica perfectly. The reviews i read said that you may need to do an additional top coat (seal) every few years if your countertops get scratched, but we loved the transformation. So affordable and turned out great!

Our tile contractor installed tile over his with a hardwood stained bullnose and backsplash.  He went with an 1/8" grout line and used epoxy grout.  It looks great!

Yes, you can put formica on formica. But, you should rough it up with sandpaper and clean it VERY well. Use a high-quality contact adhesive and apply thin, even coats. Don't put it on too think or it might peel.

Hope this helps.

It can be done but results won't be as good as countertops build in the shop and installed after it. 

Many factors involved to consider. What laminate surface you have on existing countertops, do you have seems, what tipe of backsplash you have and tipe of edge on your countertop. 

After all, my suggestion would be. Add another 30% and get new countertops made right way. Or add another 50% and get lover grade solid granite countertops what brings you much better value. Consider that in any case you will have to remove and reinstall faucet and sink. That is addittional expence that many people dont realize to include in to their budget.

Good luck.
