Granite seam check-in

milarabFebruary 18, 2013

So, a while back I posted some pictures of a granite seam and someone rightfully pointed out that you can't judge how bad a seam is if you don't know what scale it is on. So, I re-took the pictures with a measuring tape next to the seam. I'd appreciate opinions on whether this is a atrocious, poor, fair, or good seam given the difficulty of color matching and cutting speckled granites.

Also, wondering how much of an industry standard Gorilla Grips + Phantom Seam are. If most professional installers have that technology, then expecting a seam of the quality that tech produces is reasonable. But if not, then I'm not sure if I can justify demanding that level of quality from an installer that does not use that tech.

That's acceptible. It's small, doesn't appear to have lippage, and the color isn't bad either.

From the close picture you have posted it looks acceptable to me but that is only 2.5 inches of the seam. It would be great if you could also add a longer range photo showing the entire seam.

This is a longer shot of the seam. You can see a closer in shot at the link I'm adding; when I showed this closer shot people seemed to almost all think it was a terrible seam, until one person asked how zoomed in I was.

Here is a link that might be useful:
