Electrician broke my cooktop but blames me?
The electrical crew started installing lights, outlets, etc. last Friday morning. We told them that the granite company was coming to do a laser template that afternoon but they hooked up my 36" cooktop anyway which I didn't notice until they left for the day. The fabricator needed a clear line of sight for the laser so hubby and I had to unhook the cooktop. We put it back in the original carton and set it aside over the weekend in an out of the way location where it would be safe.
The crew came back this morning to finish installing lights and the electrician was fairly aggravated that we unhooked the cooktop, even though there wasn't really another option. Somehow, the cooktop was broken today while he was reinstalling it (although the granite won't be in until Friday!) and although he is taking responsibility my GC mentioned that he is extremely upset that it was unhooked in the first place.
Mmmkay. And exactly how is a granite counter supposed to be templated with a cooktop sitting on the cabinets but wired in? What do I come back with if he's only willing to cover half the cost of replacement? Is it just me or was this process done incorrectly (cooktop install => granite template => granite install?)
