Is it Possible to Fix a Cracked Porcelain Sink?

Answered by Brendan ~ March 30, 2010 ~ No Comments

The sink in the bathroom of my St. Cloud home has a large crack along the side of the bowl. It is rather small right now, and I wonder if I can fix it? Or will I have to replace the sink?

A cracked porcelain sink has no repair option that I am aware of. Chips and nicks in the sink can be repaired but cracked sinks are generally replaced. If the sink is not leaking you can put off the repair until it starts to leak or when it is convenient for you to replace it. If it is a self-rimming or top mount sink, you will likely have many sink styles to choose from.

For top mount sinks, the hole in the counter top can be easily modified for sinks the same size or larger. If you have an under mount sink you will be very limited in your replacement options if you plan to use the existing hole. You can change from under mount to top mount, if finding a replacement proves to be too difficult. Going from top mount to under mount is generally very difficult.
