Kitchen sink installation question. The hold down clamps are not long enough. HELP
Sorry it's not a plumbing question but I figure people call a plumber to install and plumb a sink so maybe someone here can assist.
We have a huge kitchen island in the home I just bought and could not afford granite to replace the Formica island and we were already doing the floor tile so we just had the tile guy put a distressed wood looking tile on top of the Formica counter.
I think it looks really nice and looks like a giant piece of old wood and very unique. and the total price with labor and tile was only $325 and it about 10ft by 4ft.
Anyways, we bought a new stainless sink and cannot use the hold down clamps to get the sink edges flush with the counter because the clamps are now too short with the added grout, tile and hardy board.
I went to Home Depot to see if they sell longer screws and they do but only about 1/4" longer and we need at least an inch longer.
It wouldn't be a big deal if the sink edges laid flat on the tile but they don't. there's a slight bow on the left and right side so without it being clamped down I guess we'd have to fill in the gap with caulking since it's flush on the corners.
Has this happened to anyone before and if so how do I fix it.
I thought I just got a bad sink so I went and bought another one and it's exactly the same, a slight bow on the left and right sides.
