Fireclay sinks- any problems?
Any potential problems if I install a undermount fireclay sink?
Since they're fired at a higher temperature, I thought they were supposed to be stronger and more durable.
But, I know that there have been problems of cracks with fireclay farmhouse style apron front sinks. What caused the cracks- did problems arise because those sinks were fireclay or because those sinks were apron front sinks?
If the problem is with all fireclay sinks, then I'll stay away from them. I'm looking at a Franke by Villeroy & Boch undermount fireclay sink so if the problems were only for apron sinks, then I shouldn't have any problems with that sink, right?
Normally, I wouldn't have considered fireclay sinks because of the cost. But, I found a fireclay sink on clearance for a really good price. Between that and the increased cost in Ticor stainless sinks, it'd still cost more than stainless but it wouldn't be crazy expensive.
