Replace Cornerstone Integral Sink With Retro Fit Stainless Steel Undermount Sink in Mint Hill, NC

This is a Cornerstone integral solid surface sink that is severely cracked.  The homeowner wants to replace it with a stainless steel undermount sink.

Unlike some of the double or single bowl solid surface sinks, there are no undermount stainless steel sinks that will fit the sink hole cutout so we will have to do some extensive alterations to allow the new stainless steel sink to be installed.

You can see here that I have had to cut into two of the radius corners.  I have to add more solid surface material (Cornerstone) to the cut areas so that I can extend the material far enough to reform the radius to fit the new stainless steel sink.  Notice the spider webb crack in the left bowl.
I already have the sink cut free from the countertop at this point but I still have it sitting in the cabinet.

Here is the final product.  As you can see, it looks like it was an original installation.  This one will require a local plumber to get the water running again.  The customer was thrilled with the result.
