Concrete counters

We have concrete countertops which I would love to replace.. The mess alone is not worth it because we would loose the backsplash. So decided to put in farmhouse sink but was told it would be too hard to cut concrete. Help!!!!

The radius would be a little tricky to change. 90% of the work will be setting up to keep things clean. A grinder with a diamond blade ad dust shroud hooked up to a vac should work well.

Granite Transformations
If you'd like to replace the concrete counters, we can help. We can install granite in your kitchen without replacing your existing counters. We're able to resurface almost any surface in your home, while installing real granite. You can learn more here-

As for the farmhouse sink. With a diamond blade, you might be able to cut the concrete. However, it could create a real mess in your home. If you could live with the current sink, i'd recommend it. But, we could help if not.

Hope this helps, good luck!

One issue you may encounter when cutting the front lip of the countertops off is risk of exposing any structural reinforcement that may have been implemented in the construction (i.e. rebar). If this is present, you would be left with round metal "circles" on either side of new farmhouse sink opening. Just something for your consideration.
