Copper Replacement Sinks (Retrofit or top mount)
Have an existing double bowl under mount sink in your granite and need a single bowl sink to replace it? Do you have an apron front sink you hate and want a better one?
Do you have a crack or two in your granite near the sink? Take a look at one solution. We built custom under mount sinks to fit existing cut-outs in the granite. This type of replacement is only available in copper. We have to build the sink very differently to accomplish a fit to a template. The bottom, side and flange are all separate pieces that have to be welded together. This is a very timeconsoming project, hence quite costly. Most sinks like this are well over $3,000 and frankly, are nowhere near as user friendly as the Signature Series sinks shown above.
Don't be scared! I have designed hundreds of custom retrofit sinks. Every single one fit like a glove!
These are commonly replaced kitchen sink models and brands:
- Kohler: K-3353, K5931, K3166, K-5838-7U, K-5988-2, K-5904-4, K-6499
- Americast: 7145.001, 7145.804, 7145.805, 7145.011, 7145.803, 7145.814, 7145.815, 7145.813, 791326-100, 7405.100, 7406.100, 8103.100, 8102.100, 7346.100, 8106.100, 8105.100, 8104.100, 9000.250
- Blanco 512-098, 509-302, 505-702 - All Discontinued Blanco sinks, such as the Blanco Tec sinks.
Basically, we can replace any Kohler, Americast, Blanco, Elkay, Franke, etc. sink with an exact copy as a single bowl sink, (only available in copper) or as a top mount sink. A top mount version will require you to have a granite fabricator come to "square up" the opening. We have worked with clients for over a decade that have chosen this option and all felt it was quite painless and inexpensive to accomplish using local tradesmen. Call me to discuss either option. My background is in kitchen design and ergonomics, so I will be more than glad to share my thoughts..
