Can you install sink after countertop?
You’ll likely be getting new sinks along with your new countertops. For best results, it’s generally recommended to wait 24 hours after countertop installation before setting up the sink. (Make sure to have a backup plan to keep your bathroom or kitchen supplied with water for those 24 hours.)
Can you replace a kitchen sink without replacing the countertop?
Answered by Todd’s Home Services: The short answer is yes it can be replaced. However, I do recommend having a granite contractor do the replacement. The adhesive used to hold the sinks under the top is very strong once adhered. It will likely have to be cut and ground out from the underside.
What goes first sink or countertop?
Countertops Go On First Before you can drop in a top range or slide in an under-counter dishwasher, the countertop must be in place. Using a paper template of the countertop configuration, including the placement of appliances and fixtures, like the sink, will help you spot problems before you install the countertop.
What is included in countertop installation?
Home Depot’s countertop installation service includes: a free virtual design consultation; your choice of surface material, color and edge style; countertop samples and slab viewing; a professional measure/template; as well as fabrication, delivery and installation by a local, licensed and insured service provider.
Do you install undermount sink before countertop?
An undermount sink should be attached to the countertop before it’s installed on the base cabinets. It’s awkward to do it otherwise—there’s typically not enough space inside the sink base cabinet to do what you need to do.
Do countertop installers remove old countertops?
If you have existing countertops and you or your contractor does the removal of old countertops, they need to be removed completely before our team arrives at your home. If you have laminate counters with backsplash, sometimes a bit of the wall plaster will come off with the old counters.
Is it easy to install a drop-in sink?
Whatever you call it, a drop-in sink is relatively easy for DIYers to install, although it does involve attaching some plumbing components. The plumbing connections—mounting the faucet and installing the drain strainer—are much complete before you lower the sink into the countertop opening.
