What do you do if you have placed an under mount porcelain sink with a granite counter top and eventually the sink cracks, chips or whatever and you need to replace it? Do you have to take up the entire piece of granite? Does it need to be replaced with a new piece?
We renovated our 21 year old kitchen Nov. 2013 and love it, then it dawned on me, what the heck do I do if should something happen to the sink?

I've wondered the same thing, but our section of counter with the sink is relatively small, so if worse comes to worse, the section could be replaced.
My parents just had granite installed and their regular top mounted sink was in great shape so they reused it. The granite arrived, the workers installed it, and the cut for the sink was too large! They had to tear it out, chipped the slab, disaster! This is a remote little town and even though there's a home depot, the granite works is miles (hours) away. Contractors had to take the sink with them and parents had to wait weeks for the reinstallation! My DF called them before they returned with a reminder to bring the sink back!
And if anyone knows how to turn the Kindle auto spell off, I would love to know. I'll post a reply, go back and check it and then die of mortification as to what I've typed!This message has been edited. Last edited by: junk collector,
