Installing Undermount Kitchen Sinks
- If you have a saber saw and a keyhole saw you can make the cuts needed for the sink yourself rather than hire someone to do it.
- The second step is to fasten the sink to the counter top. Make sure that you clean everything that you’ve drilled with rubbing alcohol. Skipping this little detail can mean long term problems for undermount kitchen sinks as bacteria can corrode the metal.
- The next step is to seal it perfectly. This is best done with latex or plumber’s putty. Remember too much is not bad. You can always wipe off the extra but you don’t want to have to reset the sink, so make sure that every inch of the perimeter is covered.
- Finally attach the mounting screws and the sink drain.
