Granite countertops are a beautiful and durable addition to any kitchen. If you want to save money on your countertop installation, consider installing granite countertops yourself. With the right tools and a little know-how, granite countertop installation will be easier and you won’t worry about spending a fortune.
To install granite countertops, you’ll need a few tools and materials. First, you’ll need to measure the area where you’ll install the countertops. The measurements will help you determine how much granite you’ll need.
Once you have the granite countertops, it’s time to install them. Begin by measuring and marking the area where you’ll be installing the countertops. Start by placing the first piece of granite on the marked area. Then, score the back of the granite countertop using a hammer and chisel. This will help the granite adhere to the adhesive. Next, apply a generous amount of adhesive to the back of the granite countertop. Be sure to spread the adhesive evenly. Then, place the second piece of granite on top of the adhesive and press it into place. Repeat this process until all of the granite countertops are installed. Finally, allow the adhesive to dry for 24 hours before using the countertops.
