Really? I had one in an old rental....not one of these trendy new ones, but like an old one from when the house was originally built in 1921. I literally bought fishing bibs to keep myself dry while doing dishes. Worst sink ever.I installed it myself, so yes.
I hate to admit it, but my wife was right. It's probably the best sink ever.
What's leaking, the faucet or the sink?New sink/faucet is the main thing the kitchen really NEEDS as it's leaking, but it just makes sense to either refurb or replace countertops when I do that.

When the water is on it's leaking out of the top of the faucet. A seal inside the faucet handle somewhere.What's leaking, the faucet or the sink?
I disagree with your assessment that it makes sense to replace the countertop just because the sink and/or faucet are leaking. Those are both quick, easy fixes. It's like saying it makes sense to replace the wheels on your car because a tire went flat.
Haven't gotten any quotes or anything but probably should just to know and evaluate some options like this. I'm not a snob for granite or whatever so anything that looks decent and is durable I would be game, thanks!Have you looked into porcelain slab? It's supposedly a really cost effective way to achieve the look of quartz/granite/marble but with a reportedly much more resilient product.
We looked at going with them in the new build, but ended up with quartz perimeter and granite waterfall island since we were trying to achieve a particular look. But if you're looking for the mostly white-with-some-veining look that's popular with resale, might check into that as an option?
I figure if I do this and it comes out terrible I can then go plan B and just rip them out anyways at that point... but yea I'm not very artistic so high probably I will fuck it up.
