Beloved for its lustrous sheen and its longevity, copper is a soft, malleable metal. If your copper sink becomes dented, here are some easy tricks for fixing it.

Hi, Iʼm Tom from Signature Hardware. Copper sinks are beautiful and becoming very popular, but it is important for you to remember that copper is a relatively soft metal and minor dents can occur. Donʼt worry, Iʼm going to show you how to fix them.

A copper sink may become inverted or pushed up at its bottom creating what is known as a "high spot." If this high spot is located around the drain, water may not drain properly and could accumulate in the corners of the sink.

To repair a high spot or small dent, simply push it out with the heel of your hand or tap the area with a rubber mallet. A bent rim on your copper sink can be fixed by placing your sink upside down on a solid, level surface and gently tapping with the rubber mallet until flat.

Please remember that any steps taken to remove a dent in your copper sink will not void your warranty. So go ahead, give it a try.
