remove bathroom countertop

Hi,
We recently had our bathroom remodeled. The job was a fiasco. We had marble countertop installed. (28" X 30"). The contractors were just not good. We got some money back but in general we are not happy about the finished project.

At some point we would like to replace the countertop. How difficult would it be to remove the countertop from the vanity and sink, replace the countertop and put everything back together? We would like to keep the sink and vanity. The countertop will be the major expense but will it take alot of labor to do this? The vanity and coutertop are glued together so I don't know if you can remove the two without damaging the vanity. The countertop also has a back and side splash.

Any info would be appreciative.

nicb,

Removal is not that hard but to make it easy use a hack saw blade. Insert this between the countertop and cabinet top. This will do a fine job of cutting the bond and then you can repalce with what you want. Use vice grips and wear leather gloves.

Good Luck!
