Installed Granite w/ Top Mount Sink


Well, this was my first install of a Granite Top. I never did it before but I think it came out nice...

I caulked around the rim of the sink with 100% clear silicone. Does it look good or should I redo the silicone? I know it will be a mess to remove....

the silicone looks alittle thick all you need is a small bead around the sink nothing just to prevent water from leaking through. it not like there is going to be major water spraying on it or anything. if you put a small bead of silicon around the sink and then run your finger around it that small amount that is left will do fine. but over all it looks real good if you dont feel like messing with it anymore.

Thanks. So, if it was your sink/home, would you redo it and place a smaller bead?

that all depends on how hard it would be to take off. LOL If I caulked it and dint like it but it would take me more time to remove it then it did installing it then i would live with it. but if it comes off easier than i put it on then i would take it off and redo it. Caulking it a pain for me, I dont like it and it dont like me. So i try not to mess with it. I put it on make it look some what good then leave it.

Just run a blade to cut the excess. Peel away. The remainder that stays between the sink and the top will seal it.

It's not what I think. If you have to ask, it'll bug you forever. Nice granite.
