tub deck cut short
Finally last week we had the soapstone installed for an undermount tub. But there is a gap about 11/16" wide in one corner between the stone and the wall. The installer has offered two solutions:
1 - free backsplash to cover the gap. I have ordered a mosaic tile for that and can't return it.
2 - patch the gap with a piece of stone. I'm willing to give it a shot but I think the seam will be noticeable. Besides, I paid for the job to be done right, not patched.
They do recognize that they have to fix the problem. If I get them to rip it out and start over do I risk damage to the tub? They installed it Thursday and left knowing there was a problem. But it's now Monday so I assume ripping it out will be more difficult. Plus I assume I will have to go look for another slab that matches the vanity.
If I let them install the backsplash then I will have to get them to pay for the tile I can't use. It's almost as expensive as the stone.
Any advice? Words of wisdom? I'm not freaking out....yet. But I am seriously kicking myself for not DIYing it in the first place.
