Kitchen Sink Repair / Replacement Options


I have a client who needs their kitchen sink replaced or repaired. Ive contacted Elkay and American Standard and neither company makes a sink in the correct size. The existing sink is an American Standard. The existing sink is porcelain over steel. The client would prefer stainless steel. Elkay is currently pricing a custom sized stainless steel sink. I would like to have some options if there are any. The refinishing company we use does not recommend refinishing kitchen sinks due to the abuse they endure. This sink measures 27 left to right, 17 front to back, 9 deep and has a left rear drain. This sink is under mounted on granite. These are inside (not flange) dimensions. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Charlie

Re: Kitchen Sink Repair / Replacement Options


Is it drop-in or undermount? Do you have the room to get larger if needed or are you limited by space/customer constraints?

You could try Franke

Brain fart , I see you said undermount

Re: Kitchen Sink Repair / Replacement Options


I would ask these companies for the actual dimension of the sink if you find anything close. I did something bad once(cut the wrong size in a countertop) and no one had the size that i needed listed. I went to my supplier with a taper measure and found the size that i needed which was different than what it said on the box.

We've sent a sketch to Elkay to price a custom sized sink. We'll see what they come back with.

Thanks for the responses

Check out Franke sinks, you might find what you looking for but be ready to pay, they're not cheap. Here is a link for a sink that size.

I hope it helps, good luck

CharlieM:

I disagree with your refinishing company. A palm sander and assorted sandpaper grits, red and gray Scotchbrite pads, and a stainless steel sink will look like new in less than an hour. I've done it.

Existing sink is porcelain coated steel.

Most likely a Americast "Silhouette" style sink from American Standard. I don't know if they still make them, but you can likely find a replacement on the interweb. There is no equivalent undermount that will fit that shape that I know of.
