Corian Vanity Top Installation


Hello,
I'm remodeling my bathroom and have come to a part that I just don't know how to do and that's installing my Corian vanity top to the cabinets and how to attach the sinks to the Corian top. I have the metal brackets for the sink but wasn't sure if I should just screw in the screws and or should I use some sort of caulk too?? As for attaching the top to the cabinets should I just glue it on? Add screws...any help with this would be great. Thanks

100% silicone caulk will be more than adequate for everything you're wanting to do.

Attach the sink, and caulk the seam between the sink and top. Same for rim or under mount. Your goal is to keep water from getting under the rim and into the vanity.

First, make sure the vanity is level and square and the top doesn't rock when it's set on top. Fix any imperfection before adding the caulk. Around the perimeter of the vanity carcass, run several 2 to 3" long strings of caulk, set the top on and don't budge it until it sets,

No, use the screws that came with the sink...the silicone is after you physically fasten the sink to the counter...

Ok..thanks again. I'm assuming that the backsplash is installed the same, using the silicone and then caulked?
