The sink cutout is a very conspicuous feature of a stone countertop. For undermount sinks the cutout should match the sink shape exactly with a consistent overhang (or reveal) relative to the top of the vertical walls of the sink. When a fabricator "freehand's" it’s sink cutouts the installer usually has to position the sink to “split the difference” between the shape of the sink and the dimensional inaccuracies in the freehand sink cutout. The edges of the sink cutout should be free of lines, bumps, or divots. Yarrabee uses Computer Numerical Controls (CNC) to cut a perfect sink based on the dimensions provided by the sink manufacturer (visit our fabrication page for more information).

topmount sink

Top Mount sink: Top mount sinks are placed over the cut out in the counter. The rim of the sink rests on top of the counter and shows a visible seam. A top mount sink is less expensive than an undermount sink because the cut out in the counter is not visible and therefore does not need to be polished.

undermount sink

Undermount sink: Undermount sinks are fastened to the under side of the counter and are available in all sink materials. Undermounting is done on countertops of solid surface (stone and sometimes tile), but never with plastic laminate. Undermount sinks are attached so that the counter overlaps the bowl, in which case there is no visible seam or joint.
