Thereof, how do you install an undermount stainless steel sink?
How to install undermount kitchen sinks
- First install the sink supports.
- Then set the sink onto the support frame.
- Apply a generous bead of caulk around the top of the sink's flange.
- Install the adjacent countertop slabs over the sink, sandwiching it between the countertop and the cabinet frame.
Likewise, how long does it take to replace a kitchen sink? On average, installation of a new 33” x 22” x 8” drop-in kitchen sink should be performed in 1.5 – 2 hours by an experienced installer. But there is no equation in all home improvement projects and some sinks are relatively easy and fast to install while others will consume much more time.
Also, can you install a sink without clips?
A kitchen sink that does not require clamps is set directly on the countertop and is held in place with silicone caulk. Installing a kitchen sink without clamps is moderately challenging because it requires carpentry and plumbing skills.
Are sink clips necessary?
Yes,,you do have to have clips, doing that without them is asking for trouble. Elkay makes extra long clips. Even in this little hick town the local plumbing supply shop had them in stock. Most any retail plumbing store will have these and I think most are universal such that they will fit most any sink make.
