To Install an Undermount Kitchen Sink
Undermount kitchen sinks – give a clean look to the kitchen table because you do not have line of caulk around the sink edge, accumulation of water and food remains, over time. Without washing lip on top of the counter, you can scoot water and food residue off the edge of the countertop and the sink, making for easier cleanup. If you do not install undermount sink properly, you will face problems down the road, as the sink begins to separate from the bottom of the counter.
To install undermount kitchen sinks you must clean the bottom side of the counter, using a damp microfiber cloth. The presence of dust from cutting the sink opening over the counter can prevent caulk and epoxy from right to respect the counter. Then, apply an even amount of silicone caulk on the top edge of the sink. Press the sink into place on the underside of the counter, pushing it to the exact position you want. And then, put a board across the width of the sink opening. Feed bar clamps through the drain holes in the bottom of the sink, clamping them to the underside of the drain openings and the Board.
Put the clip that came with the sink to the edge of the sink per manufacturer’s instructions. Drill holes in the bottom of the counter, the sink have holes for driver bolts in the counter. Next, apply construction epoxy to sink clips and the holes you drilled for mounting bolts. Drive bolts in the counter and the sink leaves alone for at least 24 hours, allowing the epoxy and silicone caulk to dry completely. Your undermount kitchen sinks done.
