Question about Buck 31" Granite Vanity Top for Vessel Sink - No Faucet Drilling - Highly Polish

1 Answer

Existing vessel sink is stuck to polished granite vanity top. We want to replace the sink with a different one but can't get the sink to release--we originally used silicone adhesive and have tried wedging a putty knife under to cut the bead but it is not releasing, any ideas?

Silicone is an excellent adhesive once it is fully cured. I would not try to pry it off but I would suggest that you take the blade out of drywall or utility knife and carefully try to cut through it. It probably will take several cuts to get the old basin free but thats the only way I can think of to do it without damage to counter top. Hope that helps. Thanks

Installing a vessel sink


Standard Vanity height is approx 34.5". A vessel vanity is approx 31" high. If you cannot remove the legs from your existing vanity then it will have to be replaced or cut down to the correct height. The reason a vessel vanity is lower is because your sink will be approx 3 to 6 inches higher than a standard drop in sink. This may be more work than it is worth. Vessel sinks most often will require a solid surface top, either glass, stone or another type of composite material. The standard laminate vanity top has a particle board substrate which will detiorate quickly at the drain location.

Engineered stone (Silestone) quartz double sink vanity. I need to cut it in half. Need help with what kind of saw, technique, etc.


You are going to cut a double bowl vanity top in half and use the 2 sinks? Do you have enough room on each side for the tops to be at least 24" with the bowl in the middle? You need a diamond saw, water cooled, a skilsaw will work with a diamond blade and somebody hold a hose on it while it is cutting, it would be better to find somebody, a granite top maker with a bridge saw to cut it for you, nice and straight. Then polish the cut edges that show. That stone you have is a pretty tough stuff, you can polish it easier than granite, and it cuts easier, but you still need the diamond, I wouldn't use a dry blade or a carborundum blade. Hope this helps.

Pegasus granite, black kitchen sink, rough on the bottam


As a plumber I have seen this problem many times.

A very simple solution!!!!!!!!!

Turtle Wax or any kind of granite counter polish. CorStone (sp?) used to send me a polish/wax that worked wonders but I havent delt with them in a long time so I dont know if it is still available.

Just use try Turtle Wax but make sure not to get Turtle Rubbing Compound as that has grit in it which will scratch the surface of your counter.

Hope this helps.

Wrong product on granite surface


Contact the company on the bottle! I would also talk to the store manager there as well. The manufacture will give you the correct steps in removing the product. You could also contact an installer and get some ideas as what can be done to either fix it or remove it. Either way, be careful. Most people don't realize that granite can be damaged.

Granite vanity top


if this is real granite ,check with a local monument or tombstone supplier in your area and ask if they will sell you a small amount of polishing compound , if this is not possible a regular grit toothpaste will work but will take way more rubbing , take a small amount on handkerchief use the tip of your finger rubbing a while then take dry rag such as small towel and buff , repeat until gloss is back or your finger is to sore to continue , tomorrow again . ps make sure it is granite and not plastic
