How do you attach a kitchen sink to a granite countertop?

How to Install a Sink in Granite Countertops

  • Carefully measure the sink opening in your granite countertop.
  • Purchase your sink and position it near the granite countertop.
  • Center the sink and carefully lower it into the opening.
  • Place silicone caulk beneath the cabinets on the rim of the sink under the counter where it attaches.

What adhesive is used for undermount sink?

While tile caulking seals the seams where tile, marble or granite meet the upper edges of the sink, using an adhesive at the underside of the countertop ensures a proper installation. The job requires a handful of under-mount sink clips, a tube of silicone adhesive and a few everyday hand tools.

How do you secure an undermount sink?

How to Secure an Undermount Sink

  1. Position the new counter top in an upside-down orientation across the cabinetry that it will reside on.
  2. Squeeze silicone caulk onto the rim of the undermount sink.
  3. Turn the sink over and position it evenly across the cut-out on the counter top.
  4. Place a self-tapping screw into one of the sink’s screw holes.

Do you install undermount sink before countertop?

It’s very important to install an undermount kitchen sink before the countertop slabs are set down. Once the countertop slabs are set down, you usually will not be able to fit the sink through the hole, and you won’t be able to properly seal between the sink and the underside of the countertop.

What kind of countertop do I need for undermount sink?

Because these sinks tend to be deeper and weigh more — especially with a sink full of dishes — they require solid weight-bearing and water-resistant countertop materials. Laminate or tile countertops are not well-suited to this type of sink. Marble, quartz, granite and concrete countertops are the best options.
