Crack in marble vanity top.

Posted by Katambo (My Page) on

I was given what appeared to be a new light emperador double bowl vanity.
When I first looked at the piece it seemed fine. When I got it home I noticed a very slight crease in the top. Maybe a crease is not the best word. Upon further examination it appeared to be a crack. It followed the grain and went from on side of the slab to the other and even to the beveled edge. It also appeared to be on the unfinished side. There is also second one from the rear edge of the vanity to the bowl. This countertop is still in the original shipping crate. Is there any hope to salvage this beautiful vanity?

I don't know if epoxy would work in your situation but I know people on the kitchen forum have had granite and marble counter cracks repaired by their fabricators. Might be worth looking into it if a replacement is not an option.

RE: Crack in marble vanity top.

You could epoxy a piece of metal - 1/16" piece of steel or 1/8" piece of aluminum. Wide enough to bridge the crack by 3/4" or so, and 1" longer than the crack. I like JB Weld epoxy - you can buy it at the hardware store.

Make sure the marble is clean and doesn't have any dust. Clean with isopropol, and make sure its dry.

It's worth a try.
