Kitchen Sink Model Number????


My wife and I are doing a small kitchen remodel/update and are planning to go through Menards to order a new kitchen countertop. We have talked to a sales associate once and gave them the rough dimensions. The sales associate told me that when we come back in to actually place the order, I can give them the sink make and model which they plug into their system to make sure the whole is cut out correctly.

We haven't taken the old countertop off yet and I am done some minimal looking on the underside of the sink but I don't see anything. Can someone tell me where I would find a make/model for a sink so I can get the right hole cut in my countertop? Or what am I suppose to do if I can't find one?

Thanks for any and all help!

I think the associate just assumed you were going to use a new sink with your new countertop, in which case the make and model would be on the box. I doubt if you will be lucky enough to find that information under your existing sink.
If you are lucky enough to find the make of your existing sink you may be able to contact the manufacturer for the cut-out specs. Otherwise you can make a template using the dimensions of your existing cut-out.

Most sink designs don't change that much. Find the maker (the logo should be on the back of the sink bowl, near the top) and measure the bowl width, depth, and height and then go online and look for the model that matches.

The counter company will also come to laser measure your kitchen. At that point they can see your sink and I would think they have experience in retrofiting existing sinks into new counters.

Measure the sink you have and take a picture if the fabricator isn't coming to the house. Give him the info. If he can't figure it out, get another fabricator.
