Granite top is one of the most luxurious and durable kitchen table surfaces that offer natural beauty and variety of colors to enhance any modern home decor. Once the granite countertop seams has been cut and fabricated, the installation procedure is straightforward and ensures a permanent, secure attachment on the cabinets. Granite countertops are heavy, so get someone to help you lift and place them. For multi-section table tops, installation will start on central or quick-sided sections. Make sure that the cabinets are securely attached to the walls. Use a builder to confirm the cabinet support is in the water.
Use wooden shims as needed, to level the cabinet bases before proceeding. Spread a 3/4 inch wide unbroken line of mounting glue on the bottom cabinet corner stiffened, using a fug pistol. Apply another unbroken strip of glue along the top of the horizontal front rail. Place granite countertop seams in place on the underside. Apply a weight to the surface at each juncture to spread the glue. Leave the weight in place for at least 24 hours while the adhesive cures. For countertops with multiple sections, repeat steps 2 and 3 for each piece. Install the kitchen table backsplash sections, if applicable.
Apply mounting glue to the rear surface backsplash pieces, and then press them in place against the wall. Shim the pieces, if necessary, keeping the top edges and ends assembled while the adhesive cures. Remove all shims that were installed to adjust backsplash pieces. Apply an acrylic grout to the kitchen table and splash to fill any nail holes and seal the joints. Use a clean damp cloth to clean away excess cement mortar and smooth joints. Sandbags or plastic buckets with sand or a concrete block make good surface weights. Granite countertop seams are very heavy and can fracture if lost, so have appropriate assistance during installation.
