BEFORE YOU BEGIN PLEASE READ THESE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
  • Consult professional help if you are unfamiliar with removing/installing bathroom cabinetry and working with associated plumbing hardware and tools.
  • Installing a vanity cabinet and vanity top will require more than one person to do the job.

Vanity Top Installation Instructions

  1. To make installation easier, attach faucets prior to positioning the top onto the cabinet. Follow the faucet manufacturer’s instructions. When handling tools and other sharp, heavy objects during installation, use a protective covering to avoid scratching and damaging the top.
  2. Apply a uniform bead of clear silicone sealant around the inside perimeter of the vanity cabinet prior to positioning the top into place. Avoid applying too much sealant where it will make contact with the cabinet’s finish. The sealant and the downward pressure of the faucet and drain assembly will secure the top to the cabinet.
  3. Carefully position the vanity top onto the cabinet. Have a soft cloth ready to wipe off any excess sealant should it compress over the edge and onto the finished sides. Attach applicable side splashes with clear silicone sealant.
  4. Use clear silicone sealant on drain openings. Read all sealant manufacturer’s instructions and warnings, some sealants like Plumber’s Putty®, should not be used with cultured marble product.
About Cultured Tops: Cultured marble, onyx and granite, because of it's material, can slighty warp if stored improperly and/or left in hot/changing temperatures; all factors beyond our control after leaving the factory. This is not a defect, just inherent properties and possibilities before it is properly installed. Most warping is correctable prior to installation by placing the top on the cabinet and allowing it to seek it's true level. Warming the affected area (placing a sunlight, using a space heater, etc) may expedite this process. After warp is removed, allow the top to acclimate to room temperature before sealing/installing the top to the cabinet.

There are no overflows in our bowls. They are not required, unsanitary, Un-sightly, Un-gelcoated, and Un-necessary.

Care and Cleaning Instructions

Use a soft sponge or cloth to absorb standing water and to remove water spots. Clean up spills immediately. Counter tops that do not have raised edges to keep water off the cabinets, will require more attention to cabinetry maintenance.

To maintain and protect the top’s finish, always use a soft cotton cloth.

With a little bit of care, your vanity top will last for many years!
