Onyx Tips And Tricks


I work remodeling (primarily bathrooms), and the majority of my work consists of Onyx showers and vanities. If anyone else works with this material I would be interested in any tips and/or tricks you could share.

Re: Onyx Tips And Tricks


I don't know too many tricks but I will say we never cut corners. A few grownd rules we follow is the material must lay flat until installed, you can take a torch to a base that has a bow to it, and radius all cutouts. Never set a shower base on the corner as its too much stress.

Oh yeah forgot to mention to add a cleat to the cabinet interior each side of the bowl to give support to the sink. Over time they can settle and the end result is the integral backsplash pulls away from the wall right behind the bowl. Not every top but we always install them so it doesn't happen.
