    The sink under the granite countertop is becoming loose. Looks like the sink is glued to the countertop.

    Any recommendations who can repair it?

    The sink should be held to the granite with clips around the edges of the sink or at four corners. Normally, there's a groove carved in the underside of the sink that the clips hold onto or holes at each of the corners. There should also be a bead of adhesive caulking - it's not "glue" exactly.

    It's not an easy DIY, but doable. You'll likely have to remove all the plumbing first, so if you're not comfy doing that, you'll likely need to hire a plumber to fix the sink.

    There are some good YouTube videos on this fix, if you want to attempt this. DIY job will cost you only the tube of caulk - and any clips you need to replace.
