Cracked Bathroom Sink

September 9, 2020

The sink started to crack near the plug hole as its only about 1.5mm thick. We had used clear waterproof gorilla tape for a while.  We decided to replace it but the mirror had to be removed to get at the screws on the back plate.  


The screws under the sink also removed. The mirror had been fitted with double sided foam tape and 9 spots of grey adhesive.  Sticky stuff spray was sprayed down the back and wire used to remove car windscreens used to cut the tape.


See below for parts used. 


Over about 2 hr the tale was cut back.  I also used a hair drier to heat the mirror as its only thin. (3mm)  Finally the mirror came away and could be cleaned up and put aside. I had decided to reinforce the new sink with fibreglass matting.


Once this was done the wood base was refitted with double sided tape.  The sink top edge also fitted tape to cushion it and re screwed into place.The mirror was refitted with double sided foam tape and some gorilla double tape. Just to make sure it stayed in place on the move.  The sink was £125 plus £15 packing and it comes in a BIG box!.. 7 days from Knaus, Jandelsbrunn. DE.
