Why Granite Countertops Need Corbels!

Granite countertops are a costly investment, so ensuring that they are supported correctly is a must. A poorly supported countertop can cause sagging, cracking, and a variety of other damaging effects that will need expensive repairs and in some cases, even replacement – not to mention, poses a safety risk. Children, especially, like to hang and lean on counter tops and eat in kitchen areas. It’s a dangerous situation to have a poorly supported counter top. Using the correct sized corbels is a good insurance policy for your granite countertop purchase. For example, if you have a 14” overhang, you should have a support that is at least 12” deep and 10” high. Your best bet is ask the advice of your counter top fabricator or your carpenter to ensure you are purchasing the properly proportioned corbels for your size over hang.
