Sinks are inspected to determine if the faucet and other hardware operate as intended. This includes evaluating how the sink is installed, how it is attached to the wall or countertop, and whether it is properly mounted. An inspection of a sink includes a review of the following:
- Is the sink properly mounted to the wall or a cabinet?
- Are there signs of the sink pulling away from the wall?
- Is there a presence of a gap between the sink and the wall?
- Movement of the sink when activating the faucet?
- Is the front edge of the sink leaning downward?
- Are there signs of separation at the seams of a countertop?
