Do you have a crack in the granite in front of your kitchen sink?
Two huge cracks in this clients' granite top almost forced owner to replace entire kitchen granite at a cost of well over $15,000!
For two years, homeowners Shari and William had been looking for a way to deal with two huge and growing cracks. One in front of their sink, and one behind the sink. For two years, they were told the only solution was to replace the granite. Replacing the granite would have been a huge project. Not only were the counter tops granite, but the granite ran up the walls to the bottom of the cabinets. That solution would have been, not only expensive, but one unholy mess! In Shari's ongoing search for solutions, she stumbled upon my website. She called me. I was instantly intrigued. I love a challenge, especially since everyone else said there was no solution other than to replace all of the granite. This is just one of hundreds of similar solutions I have provided clients over the past 19 years. There are many design options available depending on your unique situation. Email me photos and call me for solution ideas. I can build these sinks in stainless or copper. So far, there hasn't been a crack that I couldn't fix. Generally, this is a one day project!
The first thing I did is ask Shari to send me photos of the kitchen, marking in blue tape where the start and end of the cracks were. Having been a kitchen designer and remodelor, I knew that the granite would have to be cut beyond the cracked area or the cracks would have the potential for reappearing.
This is the photo she sent that shows the issue the best.
