My kitchen needs new counter tops. Here's the current counters and sink.
I have an old cast-iron double drainboard sink that I would like to put on top of quartz countertops.
I plan to just put it on top of the quartz (rather than flush with the counter) and seal around the edge. The sink is very old (60+ years, no damage at all) and very heavy (~250 or more pounds). It originally sat on a metal cabinet (see picture above). Both my wife and I are tall and having extra height (even if it's an inch) on the sink is good for doing dishes.
Is this advisable? I have heard weight like this will crack the quartz, but I have also heard that it is very flexible and strong.
