Help...Undermount Sink Needs To Be Replaced..


A customer of mine would like me to replace this undermount sink, which is cracked, however the sink itself is no longer made and I'm at a loss whether to try to attach a rectangle stainless undermount...or a drop in.
Due to the shape of the cut out, neither will properly fit..
Thanks in advance!!

I think what I would be inclined to do is pick a new sink that's close and change the cutout to work with that sink. It can be done with a grinder and a polisher.

But really in my case I would just tell them who our granite supplier is and let someone else do it...

I would have a granite company come, remove the top, take it back to their shop, re-cut a new sink bowl, re-install and be done. Best way of pleasing the customer!

Talk up the affordable alternative of replacing that countertop with the sink of their choice. For just a little more money than messing with that, they get their dream set-up. That stone is on the affordable end, and probably can be matched well enough.

Re: Help...Undermount Sink Needs To Be Replaced..


Is it my eyes or does the cutout of the top not match up with the contour of the sink ?

I agree with the others, farm that out to a countertop biz.

I can't see the crack. Is it possible to repair the crack without it looking cheesey?

I know undernount sinks are all the rage but I don't really care for them..and here's one reason why.... tear up the entire top to change out sink..and risk breaking the sucker on removel or re-install. I don't care for those farmhouse sinks either. I find them ugly. I like the deep copper drop-in sinks.

Thank you guys I believe you are all correct in getting this done by the actual counter guys.
It's what I was thinking but I just needed to hear it from somebody else.

Re: Help...Undermount Sink Needs To Be Replaced..


She actually wants a stainless drop in..... I'm not sure how I would cut it especially close enough to the backsplash to fit the sink all the way in..
If I can not be ashamed to use the word, I'll just say I'm scared to deal with this one LOL..
