How to Support Granite Countertops
Your countertop support will depend on the design of your countertop. For designs wherein your countertop traverses, you need to install support on two sides. Ideally, you must use supports that have the proper length and can provide sufficient support to your countertop. On the contrary, for countertops with overhang designs, there are various supports that you can choose from. Knee Wall or Pony Wall supports are a great option.

Keep in mind that if your countertop is made of delicate stones, then you might need to use corbels. Also, make sure that the supports are placed in such a way that they are not too close to each other. You should not permit extreme overhang.

How to Choose the Best Granite Countertop Supports?

Granite countertop supports are designed to provide support to countertops which include an overhanging stone. Granite countertop supports are essential most especially if your overhangs are quite heavy. Whether your countertops are made of granite, limestone, or marble, keep in mind that they are fragile.
