I am installing a new bathroom countertop and I have discovered that the back wall has uneven places in it. Is there a good method of hiding these places? I suppose that caulk is the obvious method, but is there a trick to caulking which will not show? Thanks. Gary S.
depending on how bad it is, and what product your countertop is, you can scribe the countertop to the wall then use a beltsander to shape it. Different methods for different materials. Another thing you can do is carve out the drywall in the "high" area, cut it out so the countertop fits, use a knife and cut along with the countertop in place, so you will only cut out that area, and won't have to repair the wall.
Once you get it pretty close run a thin bead of caulk to finish it off, smooth it off with your finger.
