Kitchen granite countertops are widely used in new or upgraded kitchens. The stone comes in many different colors and adds a touch of elegance to a room. Installation of granite is a precise procedure that involves constant measurement to ensure proper placement. The stone is very heavy and needs more people to move and lay stones. Gluing the underside of granite to plywood is a way to make sure the stone is flat and has support throughout the kitchen table.
Measure the size of the kitchen granite countertops area and cut a plate of 3/4 inch thick plywood to the same size. Then place the plywood in the area where the granite countertop will be placed. Brush rubber paint on plywood. You can use plastic instead of rubber paint, whether you want to work. Rubber paint or tarpaulin keeps the moisture from building up between wood and granite, resulting in mold or deterioration of the wood.
