antique brown granite installation (please respond to this one)
I have antique brown granite, in leathered finish installed on Friday and it confirmed that my stone choice was exactly what I wanted- it is absolutely my dream stone, but the installation is lacking in quality and I feel like the beauty of the stone was ruined. I do not like the cuts and seams. The cuts are all "chipped" with small pieces of granite missing.
It is especially visible around the cooktop, which is a drop in, flush installation and around the Blanco composting bucket.
The seam has maybe ~ 5 inches of very nice fit and the rest (out of 27 inches, since I have deeper cabinets) looks rather chopped.
I would really appreciate if somebody who has antique brown granite installed in their kitchen can send me or post here pictures of how their seams look like.
My guess is that the cuts around flush installation should have been smoother than they are. I know this is a difficult stone to work with, but I would have expected that straight cuts can be straight and not missing pieces and if they had not come straight they should have been smothered somehow.
If there are some installaers here, I would appreciate your input as well- am I being unreasonable?
