Overmount and undermount cutout – what’s the difference?

Overmount cutouts do not need to be polished, and the sink sits on top of the stone. On the other hand, undermount cutouts are sealed underneath. The stone needs to be polished for a finished look. Use undermount to make it easier to clean your countertops.
