  • Here’s what you need to know about undermount sinks

    Yes, you can! Ray’s has been certified for almost 20 years to install sinks into laminate countertops. The only manufacturer that will warranty an undermount sink into a laminate countertop is Karran. Any of the other sinks purchased from a box store are strictly used for Quartz/Granite applications only. Karran sinks are designed uniquely with a stone rim that adheres to the bottom of the countertop. The Karran sinks show the true beauty after installed to reveal a flush look with the deck of the countertop. Ray’s can show you the style and color options available.
