Follow-up on our Pegasus Granite Sink

I get a lot of hits on my blog for info our Pegasus granite sink. After two years, it's still basically as good as new.


There are no stains, it still cleans easily, and the surface finish is fine. I just looked at it closely, and there are no scratches.

I undermounted this sink, attaching it to the granite top with polyurethane glue. It is sealed with epoxy grout - no leaks or problems of any kind.

It is a beautiful sink. I am not suprised about it holding up so well. Granite it one of those things that will break before it shows wear. Great kitchen remodel

If you are doing a kitchen remodel, you should check out this kitchen blog called “Kitchens in San Luis Obispo”. It has great information on Kitchen Cabinetry, and “How to get started”.

Granite is one of my favorite materials, and this is a great looking set. I'm not surprised it lasts all this time.

We have granite tops in our kitchen and they are simply amazing, scratch resistant, easy to clean, would love a granite sink too now!

Dave cabinet said...

The wood and the granite look grate. Is there anything you should do to keep granite looking good and prevent wear.

Great job on your kitchen! After seeing your granite sink, we decided to go with the same.
However we wanted a single bowl and home depot didn't have any we liked.
So we picked up a large single bowl by Franke from Lowes. It can be top mounted or under mounted and has an 8 1/2" deep bowl.
It comes with a single hole for the faucet which is exactly want we wanted, but has knockout areas for three more holes.
It looks awesome with our cherry cabinets and we love it.

Modern Kitchen Cabinets can be found for a very affordable price online. Your $12k remodel is extremely impressive. Great work. The sink, counter tops and everything else are just beautiful.

Congratulations!

did you do a lot of the work yourself? or sub it out?

TTFWEB said...

I did it all myself - no subs.

mitch said...

I was just wondering, who makes the Pegasus granite sinks? I've read that only Home Depot sells them, but I've seen them for sale on other sites. Some say they are made by Astracast, which has lousy customer service, others say they are made by Blanco. I cannot find any specs. sheet with detailed dimensions or info on faucet holes either. Can anyone help, please?

From this picture it looks like you went with granite tile, is that right? I didn't know you could do an undermount with tile...thought just with slab...huh....any advice?

Kevin Warhus said...

Beautiful tile and wood surrounding the sink! I love it! I am debating remodeling my house with a local Arizona company and will have to include some of these ideas.

Wow the sink and the counters look great together, I especially love the look of the brown tones in the granite.

Serg said...

This sink looks great with a 1.25 granite slab ask your fabricator to cut by the template and looks amazing with a curve back and a front. Because this sink is granite dust mixed with epoxy we can drill a hole anywhere you would like for your faucet.

Queenie Michelle said...

Granite may be a little more expensive than other materials, but it lasts longer and can be easily cleaned. Nice sink! Thanks.

Natural Stone is the way to go!

Two years without any scuffs, scrapes or scratches is a minor miracle. Whatever you're doing to keep that sink looking as fresh as the day you installed it... well... just keep doing it! Are you doing any special 'cleaning strategy' to keep it that nice, or just religious cleaning?

Kim said...

Granite is a great choice for counter tops and sinks. Very easy to keep clean and lasts long.

Great job here! Your sink looks beautiful.

Remodeling your kitchen requires big amount of preparation... starting with budget..how to get good materials, and how to make it easy for you. When it comes to cabinets, it is practical to get RTA Cabinets since installing it is much easier than any type of cabinets.
