50yr tile counter w / porcelian sink. ikes!
Hi all. My house was built in 1942 and has never had the kitchen remodeled. It was well built but now needs repaired and IÃ¢ÂÂve had nothing but headaches trying to do so, (eg, all the wood cabinet doors and drawers are uniquely sized). The entire counter is tile as well as the backsplash and is in dire need of re-grouting. About 9 months ago I put new caulk around the under mounted porcelain sink. That didnÃ¢ÂÂt last long since I hand wash my dishes and love to cook my kitchen is constantly in use so before I knew it the wood supports rotted as well as the wood floor under the sink .the supports have been replace, the floor dried out but there's a huge uneven gap around the sink where the caulk goes . Because itÃ¢ÂÂs deep as well I inserted backing rod in the gap but have gone through two tubes of caulk and clean and restarts trying to get it even. Any tips? Advice? Should I re-grout then re-caulk? Would it help to replace the tile around the sink or redo the supports? I know IÃ¢ÂÂm in over my head and don't know what IÃ¢ÂÂm doing or where to start so any help would be appreciated. I did search the forum before posting but everyone seems to have a granite counter top.
