    What kind of countertop? What is it made of? Wood and laminate tops are caulked and screwed from underneath. Granite, marble, and quartz tops are caulked and set in place. The weight and caulk keeps them in place.

    What kind of counter top ? Cultured, laminate or granite. Will at least on all would have to remove sink and disconnect plumbing. Laminate is usually screwed on from underneath. Cultured and granite can be glued on. Will have to use a putty knife and try to loosen carefully from underneath and cut caulk joint at wall.

  • I think it depends on if glue was used or not, but here's a video of removing granite without breaking :

    Do you have a picture?

  • I agree, it’s going to depend on what your counters are made of and how they’re attached to the cabinets. You’ll need to do some sleuthing.
