It’s always better to leave your sink’s repair and maintenance in professional hands. We have experience installing various pipes and using the tools needed for this task. Additionally, our precision skills will ensure that no damage occurs during installation or tightening procedures which could be much more costly down the road if left unattended!
There are two things to consider when choosing your new sink:
Style and Material.
Here are four popular sink styles:
Undermount sinks: are the most common style that our customers choose. Their distinctive advantage is that they are mounted under the countertop allowing counters to be easily cleaned.
Overmount sinks: sit on top of the countertop. The sink’s rim provides a lovely accent to the stone and allows the sink to become a more prominent feature of the countertop.
Farmhouse sinks: are generally mounted under the countertop. The defining feature is that the front of the sink is exposed. These sinks can provide a rustic feel to your kitchen but also work remarkably well with modern designs.
Vessel sinks: sit on top of the countertop, fully exposed. They are generally used in bathrooms or utility areas. They provide a beautiful decorative accent to your countertop.
There is no right or wrong style. Your choice will come down to personal preference and taste.
These are the seven most common materials used to make sinks:
Stainless steel and Composite are the most commonly used materials for kitchen sinks. Composite sinks have the added advantage of coming in many different colors. Both materials are durable and should last long with proper care and maintenance.
Cast Iron sinks, while not as common, are still used in both bathrooms and kitchens. They are durable but heavy and require some extra work to install.
Porcelain sinks are chosen for more than 90% of vanity jobs. They come in both overmount and undermount styles. Due to their tendency to break or chip upon heavy impact, they are not advised for kitchen sinks, but they are a perfect choice for vanities.
Copper and Glass sinks are more common in vanities but are gaining popularity in kitchen designs. They often come in vessel-style sinks that add an elegant feel to bathroom projects.
Natural Stone sinks, made from granite, marble, onyx, or travertine, are a far less common choice for most homeowners. They look amazing but are very expensive, and durability can be an issue.
Pick your sink based on these materials and styles and how they may best suit your lifestyle.
