They are de- signed to evenly carry the weight of the counter top and accommodate the toes of a person standing directly in front of the cabinet. These cabinets have to carry this weight without sagging over their life time as well as continue to be plumb, level and square. Carefully following these procedures can ensure the installation is beauti- ful and lasts as long as is expected without requir- ing costly service calls for broken or sagging counter tops. ©2017 PCS Professional Cabinet Solutions.
