Who supplies the granite overhang support
I've been trying to read up on countertop overhangs but I'm still confused. Can some one help clarify?
If my granite is 12-15" and my granite is 2 cm, how much extra support?
If my granite is 12-15" and my granite is 3 cm, how much extra support?
And if I do need support, who supplies them? The cabinet makers? The granite fabricators? Or am I suppose to source it out myself and supply them to...?
I see here on GW that folks brace it with some metal but I'm not sure where to source it and what are the specs and physics behind cantilevers and how to place them.
Most of the KDs I've spoken to just recommend the 12" and say I don't need extra support. But if I wanted, I could and use corbels (which is not the look I'm going for).
One fabricator (as I've only spoken to one so far), says the supports are suppose to be from the cabinet makers and they didn't know what I was taking about invisible metal brackets (partly because I didn't really know what I was talking about and because of a language barrier)
Please help me clarify. Thanks.
PS I live in Toronto so if you know of a good cabinet maker or fabricator please pass on the info. Thanks again
