The countertop is a primary fixture in any kitchen. A popular design in millions of homes around the country is the placement of countertops over cabinets. This approach, however, must be done with care to ensure success.
The primary stages implemented by contractors when attaching Granite Countertops to base cabinets include:
Applying Caulk or Adhesive
The first step involves applying an adhesive along the edges of the cabinets. You can choose between silicone caulk or construction adhesive, depending on your personal preferences. Many contractors recommend adhesive because caulk can get a little messy if too much is applied.
The second stage involves placing the countertop carefully over the cabinets. Having more than one person help with this process is crucial when looking for proper placement. It should be noted that you won’t get a second chance once the adhesive dries, so it’s essential to get it right the first time.
Encouraging the Bonding Process
The final step involves placing pressure sticks onto the surface to encourage the adhesive to stick. The sticks should be placed 12 to 15 inches apart to ensure all areas are covered. You can also add a clamp to the edge of the counter. For the best countertop installation services in the market, call us today! Custom Royal Countertops and Tile, your preferred contractor!
