Appliance Garage on Granite with tiled walls3/20
I need to install a corner appliance garage in a kitchen we did a few years ago. The customer since upgraded to all granite counter tops and put in all tile on the wall space between the counter top and uppers. Just wondering the best way to install this so it is secure without drilling into the new granite. Thinking of just making up some small framing that will only be secured to the uppers, and drop it down to fasten the garage to?? Or some adhesive on the granite??
First off I would check if there is going to be a plugin in the appliance garage. Where I'm from that wouldn't pass code.
Dan, I don't care where you are from. I asked about how to securely fasten an appliance garage with granite tops and tiled walls. Nothing in that remotely asked about geographical locations and electrical codes or outlets inside them. If anyone has installed a corner appliance garage on granite with tiled walls then by all means share how you did that please. If it has absolutely nothing to do with this specific topic, like where I am from, outlets, and codes, I dont care. Thanks!
Lighten up Dave...
I install my appliance garages against counter and splash using adhesive calking. No drilling, no nails, no screws.
On a seperate note and I say this for your own benefit. You need to take down most of the pictures on your website. You are doing yourself a disservice by putting up pictures of kitchens with no backsplash, unfinished, stuff on countertops, kids in pictures. It would be far better to have no pictures for your sales.
Also, you'll fare better if you can put up items that are built out of something other than regular sawn oak.
Man, I feel like we are really getting off topic here my friendly folks. I thought this was a place to get straight forward info on woodworking projects. It always has been in the past for me. Over the many years of reading, and sometimes posting (sparingly) within this forum I have gained much insight to the vast knowledge of great professionals like yourselves.
Dan, I apologize for the over abrasiveness response from the start. I didn't mean to hurt your over sensitive feelings. Just wanted to stay on topic.
Family Man, thanks for pointing out my website is pure crap. I didn't realize the photos of my work, mostly plain sawed oak, offended everyone in the wood industry, mostly you, and it was hurting my revenue stream to a point that I would need to stand in the soup line soon. Without this valuable industry insight I might be facing total financial ruin. Thank you for your professional advice on my business marketing strategy for our online presence. This will help us no doubt.
Bruce, I think you are right, I should lighten up. Thank you for the actual info on how you install appliance garages. Sounds like this is how I will tackle this project. I really appreciate your input. It was just what I was looking for and nothing else.
Well thanks for the sarcasm Dave.
Point being if your a professional you should Know the codes that effect you, not saying you Need to be a journeyman.
The way I set Appliance garage is by securing it to the cabinet above and then use a 100% clear silicone caulk to the granite
BTW codes where I am, does not restric outlets in Appliance garage
