Installing Granite Countertops
I have a potential job next week installing a granite countertop for a customer who didn’t want to wait the three months it would take (so she says) to schedule the granite guy’s crew.
It will already be cut-to-fit, of course, so it looks like all I’ll have to do it remove the old countertop and then place and fit the new one. I expect I’ll have to shim, etc. to get the pieces to match up.
I found one article on FineHomebuilding.com, and it said that the countertop is basically glued to the cabinet frame with clear silicone caulk, and that the pieces are also joined together using clear silicone caulk (as the silicone allows for expansion and contraction. That all seems pretty straightforward.
Does anyone have any experience, tips, do’s or don’ts for me?
