    Kitchen fitted by previous owners 10 years ago. We've been here 4. The worktop is U-shaped and there's a join close to the sink (think galley style with a sink between the two long worktops). It gets wet frequently and sadly has started to lift.

    Can I remedy it?

    Have you tried using a G clamp on it to see if it moves?

    problem is that once its got water in the mitre no matter what you do on repair basis, its possible it will swell up again.
    there's a few reasons why this could happen - its usually due to some faulty aspect(s) of the original installation.
