Unfortunately Swanstone does not have a repair kit for this type of damage. The chip will be permanant. They do offer a limited lifetime warranty which if a defect is found they will repair or replace at their discretion. Of course you will be responsible for any labour cost as per their warranty and they do not go into any detail on how to repair impact damage. For more information go to www.theswancorp.com

    Swanstone DOES indeed have a "patch kit" available. I spoke with a Swanstone rep today (1/28/14) and he is sending me one to repair my kitchen ksink.

My Swanstone sink is sixteen years old and still in very good condition except for a small chip. The sink is a cream color with black and white specks. Is there any way to repair the sink?


You should be able to have a competent repair or restoration specialist from a reputable granite or marble fabrication shop come to your home and fix the problem. If it is a very small chip (less than an eighth of an inch around, my first try would be super glue. Keep in mind the fill will be fairly clear in color, which may match the dark specks, if not use an indelible marker after you smooth the glue to color it black. Use the gel type super glue if it is on a vertical portion of the sink, otherwise use a thinner variety. Clean the chip with sop and water, let it dry then use rubbing alcohol to remove any grease or oil residue. Use a masking type tape to isolate the chip so you have less work once the glue dries. Fill the chip and once the glue is dry, use a single edge razor (Use extreme caution, razors are by nature sharp) to gently scrape, not cut the glue flush to the sink surface. The manufacturers of these sinks claims they are difficult to scratch, but pay attention to your pressure or you might create scratches on the sink itself. Hold the blade perpendicular to the surface of the sink and take your time scraping the dried glue down changing to a fresh blade often. If the chip is in a radius area of the sink, you will have to be a bit more creative and probably use steel wool to remove the excess dried glue. I would start with #000 and see how that works, maybe using #00 to start the process and finish with #000 or #0000 steel wool to match the finish of your sink. If your chip is larger than an eighth of an inch around, I would recommend hiring a repair and restoration specialist from a competent granite fabrication shop to make a color matched epoxy to fill the blemish.

Chipped on top inner edge


I am going to assume you want a way to fix the chip.

This product is a fiberglass material and can be fixed like a fiberglass car and then painted. If you have ever done this type of work it is not too bad if not then I would take it to an auto body shop and go from there. However I would get a bid from them first as it may be less money to buy a new one. The big problem will be matching the color if it is part of a complete bath combo.

If you decide to do this yourself the colors of fixture paints are very limited were as a body and paint shop can mix up any color you desire.

There is always caulking but that will always show.

Sorry but there is no easy way around this situation.

I have a lovely Swanstone kitchen sink that got a chip in it about a quarter of an inch down. My son sanded it according to directions and then filled it. The only trouble is the filler darkened slightly...


if the filler can be easily removed then it wasn't cleaned and dried properly.

try it again, be sure to remove ALL the sanding dust from the surface and inside the chipped area.

be sure to get the correct color, some colrs are close, but slightly different when dry

I have a composit kitchen with knock outs for 4 faucets. How do I knock them out?


Do NOT try to knock them out! The correct way is to drill them out as needed for your particular faucet. Refer to your installation instructions for your faucet to determine which holes need to be drilled out. There is a school of thought that it is best to drill them all and use a hole cover on those you don't use since once the sink is installed you will no longer be able to drill them at exactly factory locations.

You will need a 1-3/8" hole saw (my preference is Lenox brand # 30022), an arbor (a special drill bit for the hole saw Lenox brand # 2L), and preferably a varible speed drill.

Turn your sink upside down and place onto a clean padded surface to protect the finish and is also a padding that you can bear to throw away. Locate the center of the hole to be drilled. If there is no dimple from the manufacturer at dead center, you will have to give it your best guess. Mark that spot and with the arbor securely mounted into the hole saw, begin drilling at 1/4 to 1/2 speed of the drill, until the tip of the arbor had drilled completely through. Remove the hole saw and turn the sink right side up. The hole that the arbor made in now called a pilot hole and will guide your hole saw perfectly. By drilling from the top side you eliminate any chipping. Insert arbor into the pilot hole and begin drilling using light to moderate pressure until the hole saw has drilled through. Be careful! As you sense you are nearly through the drilling, only use light pressure so you don't lose control of the drill when the saw pops through and accidentally smack your sink.
