Install an Undermount Sink to a Granite Tile

Updated:2014-04-17 11:49:47
An undermount sink mounts under the countertop. This allows a flat edge for pushing food and water off the countertop and into the sink. There is no messy rim or lip to catch food, so this is a great way to avoid a bacteria buildup on your counter. Installing an undermount sink onto a tile or granite countertop is relatively straightforward and should only take you a few hours to complete.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, place a bead of silicone around the top edge of the kitchen sink.
Secondly, place the undermount sink under the countertop and center it under the hole for the sink.
Thirdly, place a 2-inch by 4-inch board across the opening for the sink on top of the countertop.
Fourthly, place the end of a bar clamp through the hole in the bottom of the sink basin, and then place the other end of the bar clamp over the wood. Tighten the clamp to hold the sink in place.
Fifthly, secure the sink to the underside of the countertop with its mounting brackets and supplied screws. Remove the bar clamp and 2-inch by 4-inch board. In some cases, you will use a fast-drying epoxy resin to hold the brackets against the underside of the slate countertop. Do this if the countertop does not have predrilled inserts for screws.
