If you granite benchtop has everything but the kitchen sink you are not the only one. Sinks can separate from stone benchtops for 2 main reasons:
- Poor installation: If the correct specifications and quality materials have not been used or followed this can result in glues not binding effectively to the stone material of your benchtop.
- Age: Your benchtop may have been installed over 10 years ago which could mean that the adhesive products may just not be working as well as they used to.
What should I do?
Your best option is to give a solid surface benchtop manufacturer in your area a call. They will be able to re fit your sink with specialized adhesives and fixings so that you do not damage the stone or cause cracks or chips.

I took a photo of this kitchen sink which had separated. I was able to re-fix the sink and also replaced the silicone along the back of the wall which had gone moldy. Check out the difference!
