Granite with undermount sink. When the installers attached my stainless under mount sink to the granite, it shows the edge of the sink instead of the granite overhanging the sink. (the granite hole is bigger than the sink.) I thought the granite was supposed to overhang the sink. Now that it is in, is there anyway to take it out and redo it without damaging the sink and/or the granite, or am I stuck with it this way? He put calk on it but I think that will not be easy to clean when food gets on it.

SOURCE: will under mounted sink take the weight of garburator?

The sink should be physically mounted with clips if it is not cast iron, otherwise a cradle made of wood is usually the route I go.

No the weight of the disposal will not separate the sink from the granite. When they set the sink they put wood on the edge under the sink to hold the weight of the sink. You will not have a problem.

What type of adhesive to use to fasten underhung stainless steel sink to granite countertop


No adhesive will permanently hold the sink, you should have a fabricator drill and install pins to screw the sink into place, you could also push it tight to the stone and then secure it a piece of wood screwed into the back wall of the cabinet.

There were no instructions to install my undermount sink. What can I do?


Most under mount sinks are installed before the counter tops go in, they are cut to fit and glued in with 2 part epoxys and secured with screws and clamps. Replacing one in an existing counter top is not an easy job. If you have a granite top, forget it. If it is wood and formica, ok, you can pull the splash off and remove the top, but it is a lot of work. You would be better off with a new top, or a new sink, rim type. Now if you are building a new house and this is new construction, then you can do it no problem. And depending on what kind of top it is, it needs to be screwed and glued. The guy here that did granite for us, would drill out little holes, about 1/4 inch dia, and 1/2 deep for these little machine inserts to go into. Epoxy them in, then clamp the sink down or up to the top with machine screws, about 10/24, 1/2 inch long. Through a clamp, and epoxy the top on, sometimes he used clear silicone. depended on the top. If it was wood, you would just screw into the wood with 1/2 inch pan heads. Hope this helps.

• Purchase and install the GPF65 side-mount
bracket kit if the underside of counter is granite
or a similar material that will not accept wood
screws. The GPF65 kit is available from authorized
GE appliance dealers.

Also note that any stainless steel tub models would be able to accomadate granite tops without a kit, and I beleive all Profile GE models come with the kit included.

How to repair porcelain/cast iron sink scratches


You can repair the sink with an epoxy based porcelin kit


Epoxy will not show brush streaks it will levelitself out do not get any kits from HD or Lowes they do not harden

Go to Sherwin Williams and ask for an epoxy paint for porcelin

As for removing the under counter sink
I would try cutting through the caulk adhesive
between the bottom of the granite and cast iron
sink with a hack saw blade
I have used a diamond blade on a grinder and
cut through but it was not a granite counter top
Be extremely areful to suport the underside of the sink with 2x4 blocks to prevent stressing the granite as you cut through
Good luck

Installing a drop-in sink


The stone installer told you to use silicone,
what makes you think that you know more than he does about his product.
IF you go use lockdown screws, you will put tension on a thin granite slab at 4 or 6 points around the perimeter of a hole.
stone breaks under very small tensions
do as instructed and silicone the sink in place,
or void any warranty and buy the counter top again when you break it
formica is plastic on a chipboard substrate -not stone

not perhaps the answer you want to hear,
