Sinks. Tuesday , September 26th , 2017 - 10:02:47 AM
The easiest contribution to a remodel of your kitchen would be replacing your kitchen sink and taps. This should be a simple endeavour as long as you are not replacing the old sink with a smaller size or replacing the counter-top as well. This would be a perfect undertaking for any DIY aficionado.
The most common and the cheapest sinks that are available in the markets these days are the second hand ones. They are the main source for the homeowner intending to buy the cheapest sinks as he will be getting bigger discounts for the sinks. The kitchen and bathroom sinks that are marketed by these second hand dealers will be similar to that of the commercialized shops, the only difference being that it is used. These second hand sinks can be found to cheaper of 80 to 85% when compared with the rates of the brand new sinks that are available in the commercial markets. Another way to find the best deals for the sinks is to seek the guidance of the sink experts. Some of the sink experts have online sites where buyers can take a look of their credentials. Though there will a little consultation fee charged by these people, they can be able to easily guide the buyer to the store which offers the best quality of the bathroom and the kitchen sinks at the best discounted rates. This is far better than going for the second hand ones and the ones sold in the grey markets.
Another way to secure the sink is to use epoxy. A bead of epoxy is placed around the under side of the sink’s lip. You can also place a bead of epoxy around the edge of the sink hole. Drop the sink in the hole and make sure you have a flush seam all the way around. If part of the sink is not flush, use the brackets under the counter to pull it down and secure it. If you do have a flush seam, it means you have a very smooth and level counter surface. If this is the case, you can use just epoxy to mount the sink and may not need any screws and brackets underneath. In either case, be sure to allow the epoxy to dry for the amount of time shown on the packaging. Do not touch the sink at all during this period.
