HELP! Dont know how to install electrical outlet in back splash
We have windows above one run of kitchen counter, so for the narrow back splash, we decided to continue the engineered stone that we are using on the countertop, which is 1-1/7-inch thick. The countertop installer ran into a problem that he could not resolve: our existing electrical box has small metal pieces that stick out and keep the engineered stone from fitting. The installer thought a plastic electrical box would be more malleable, so I consulted with someone at LoweÂs, and brought back a selection of blue plastic electrical boxes. I am quite mechanically challenged, but none of them to me seemed to be a solution.
I know itÂs not that common to use something so thick for the back splash, but I have seen it done. What is the normal way to handle electrical outlets in this circumstance? What sort of electrical box? How is the faceplate usually attached, since you canÂt screw into the engineered stone? I would really appreciate your help!
