So, an alternate title for this thread could be, "WTF have I done and how do I fix it?"
I'm still working on finishing our basement. Last night I was working on the faucets and drains in the bathroom. We have a 6' long, single piece cultured marble vanity top with two sinks. Each sink has a faucet with 8" spread handles. As I was installing the stem for the faucet, I pulled on the bottom of it to try and straighten it out in the putty underneath it. Well, I guess I pulled a little too hard. SNAP! A nice hairline crack all the way from one handle hole to the other. FOOK!
I doubt I'd have a leg to stand on if I tried to claim the sink was faulty and that's why it cracked. I'm guessing my options are to either replace the whole thing (~$435 ) or repair the crack.
Anyone know if it's possible to repair cultured marble? Are there DIY kits to do it? I'm sure there are resurfacing specialists who might be able to do something with it. I wonder if that would cost as much as a whole new piece though?
