Re: prefab granite overhang?


I am curious though as well exactly what goes under this mess.

Re: prefab granite overhang?


The only support is the wall cleat on one end and a half-wall on the other end that runs the full length minus ~5".

I made a crude diagram:


The builder is going to replace the cleat with a larger/longer one and install a couple of these underneath: https://www.counterbalanceshop.com/c...ket-10654.html

As well as put in a strip of plywood to fill the gap, tied into the cleat and those brackets, and finish/paint the underneath.

Is this sufficient or do they need to pull the top and put a new one in?

Full length minus 10". Not 5". I can't edit my posts.

Another diagram with proposed supports:


Will this suffice?

It will strength wise.

It sure looks like they will be ugly as heck if you're not building in cabinets under there.

Again, what exactly is this area?

Re: prefab granite overhang?


I thought I said already, but it is an peninsula/seated bar area. Open space is where chairs go.

We are considering putting in some shallow storage underneath there (still plenty of room for chairs), but I am more concerned with strength than looks at this point.

Re: prefab granite overhang?


Neird..... Thanks... Now you're cooking....

That is a decent solution as to stability.

I would note, that if that front edge has been laminated out to 4cm (very common) that ply can be run all the way out to the edge. 3/4 ply is a little less than 2 cm.

I'm basically of the same thought as Pugs.... but as you point out, that is not your question/concern.

But YOU did well in questioning the integrity, and getting a satisfactory fix from the installer.

But remember....YOUR INSTALLERS did a krap job if they were going to leave that and walk away.

Watch them closely..... be sure they install the 24" angle iron and be sure they land them on studs and well secured with substantial lags/screws and not some drywall screws.

Good going

Re: prefab granite overhang?


Neird... Sort of a peripheral question... but you called that pre-fab granite.

Normally pre-fab only comes in 25-26 inch depth.

By pre-fab ,, did you mean they fabricated it in the shop.... or you went to a granite supplier that sold the counter already made and finished....

Just curiousity.

Best

Re: prefab granite overhang?


When we ordered it they sold 25/26" piece finished on one side as well as 36" wide pieces finished on all sides.
