I think white would look weirder than the black against your black granite.

If starting from scratch, I'd make the splash to c-top transition joint as small as possible, but that ship left the...

1. I'd skip the Baltic Birch as it doesn't use exterior glue. Better as cabinet material and not subfloor/underlayment. If you're looking at Big Box, ACX may be a better choice, but don't know what's...

Bob, not sure this is helpful or if you've figured out your concern, but here's some food for thought.

I don't know that either would be considered an upgrade...just different looks.

Were it me, I'd probably transition to plastic somewhere I could easily reach. Could be done with a no-hub coupling. Depending on region that might be either ABS or PVC.

You may find that the adhesive holding that face mounted sheet uses water soluble glue. Wet saw will not be your friend. If that's true and from where I stand, I might deem this a designer's dream...

Steven, it seems to me you're counting on those 2x4s evenly bearing on your slab, when in fact they're bearing on the high spots and spanning the low spots. I've yet to see the garage slab that was...

Of your listed options, I think you'd be best to proceed with stripping underlayment, take hills off original plywood and then add additional plywood layer.

Yep, still required. Water and particularly water vapor are ever present or possible, be it crawlspace, wall cavity, floor, interior spaces, etc.

A good choice among those would be the AraucoPly. I get it from local lumberyard and it is rated for underlayment. Labeled differently than domestic ply because it comes from Chile, IIRC. Nice stuff....
