Kitchen sink

My kitchen sink is pulling away from the granite in the center, anyone know what kind of epoxy they use or some other fix without removing countertop.

FYI, yes it is granite with a stainless steel sink.

Danny, when we were both at the Service Center a couple years ago they replaced my Quartz countertop. I remember Randy telling me to make sure we left the brace under it for at least a day for the Silicone sealer to set up. Whether that is what they used or was just a generic name for it I can't say.


I think I would try and get in touch with Randy

Thanks Vaughn, that is what appears to be there, just trying to confirm.

You might also stop into a Home Depot or Lowes or a Kitchen and Bath place. Quartz is Quartz. See what they use to glue the sink in.

No problem. I knew what you meant. The advantage to Quartz is we don't have to refinish it occasionally.

Do you travel with the covers in place? I removed ours as soon as we got the trailer home. I would think they would cause that.

Removed & stored covers long ago, way too heavy & scratching the sink.

We did the same thing. Way too heavy!!!!! I'm not sure but I think the tech told me that there are screws on each side under the sink that can work loose. Check those. When ours was loose, the tech put Dap around the sink where it meets the quartz. Did a terrible job, scratched the sink and Dap is too stickey! It will take me twice as long to repair myself because removing the Dap is a pain! I will use clear silicone to fix and I will tape off the sink and the quartz before putting new silicone on. Just haven't felt like getting in to that mess yet. He did the same thing to our leaking shower twice.......used Dap, then I gave up and fixed it myself. Took me several hours to remove that stickey Dap and replace with silicone. Hasn't leaked since and I've never gone back to that dealer for repairs.
