Drop In and Undermount Sink Holes

There are several ways to cut out for a drop in sink hole. The East Coast Granite approach is to cut a hole out in the four corners. Then we brace the interior with a 1″x1″ piece of wood approximately 25″ long from corner to corner, then clamp the wood to the granite. This way the interior is secured from falling away when it is cut creating the hole for the drop in sink. The advantage to a drop in sink is that if it becomes damaged in anyway it can be easily replaced.

An undermount is a premium look. The the hole for the sink is cut out and then polished along the inside edge. As well a hole or holes are drilled into the granite next to the sink hole in order to set the faucet, soap dispenser, or water purifier.
