Granite Crack Repaired!
This granite cracked due to rodding that is placed in the stone to provide support during installation. After the granite is installed, the rodding is not removed. There are many materials used for rodding now, but not long ago steel was the only option.
Water will rust the steel over time by seeping in where the sink meets the granite, or though an open seam. This will cause a crack in the stone that seems to have come out of no where. It will grow and grow, usually until the cracked piece breaks off.
To repair this, the metal bar has to be removed. It can be accessed on the bottom side of the granite. Although it could be hidden by the lip of the sink or the cabinet. In most cases, the sink has to be dropped down to have enough room to operate. In this case, the bar had already broken the piece off. The piece was being held on with duct tape.
The bar removal process is very tedious and requires patience. It is not something we would recommend trying at home. If you are noticing a crack in your granite or other natural stone countertop in front or behind the sink. Call today for a free estimate.
