Hello Loadsoffunforu1,
Yes you can, it is called a FHA 203K, contact a reputable lender in your area to find out how the program works and if it is what you had in mind.

Dave, does your home have laminate counter tops? If so, do you like them? If so, do you wish you had granite counter tops? If not, do you wish you had laminate counter tops?

Today, laminate counter tops are becoming more and more rare, as the trend is toward granite. Yet people are putting them on the floor all the time, and I don't get it. If you walk on a laminate floor, it feels hollow and fake, as most are done "floating" which means they are not nailed down. Because they are floating, after a relatively short time, they usually move and joint cracks develop. This is compounded if there is ever any moisture or water that gets a chance to work into them, causing bubbling, and general ugliness.
