Cracked Corning Sink

Posted by rake4leaves (My Page) on

We have a Corning counter & sink. The sink has a large crack,
the result of a poorly insulated window, cold air + hot water. We were considering having the existing corning sink cut out, replaced with a stainless steel sink insert, with its edges on top of the counter.

However, a reputable home renovator informed us that the whole counter needs to be replaced. Has anyone had similar experiences with our preferred solution: replace with a stainless steel sink insert, not the whole counter?
Thank you in advance.

Do you mean Corian? Not familiar with Corning except as glassware.

Oops, that's an error on my part. Yes, it's a Corian material for the counter top that was installed in 1995.
Sorry about that.
