Cooktop cutout vs. Bridge surround? (quartzite) Help please!
I'm about to sign a contract with a fabricator and have decided on White Maucabas quartzite. Have any of you had experience with a fabricator offering to do a bridge around the cooktop using 2 separate small pieces on each side of the cooktop with small seams on each side? They say they've had great success with them but I'm a little hesitant as I've only heard of cooktop cutouts before. I'm wondering if there would be a strength difference between the 2? (also, I will have a 30" induction cooktop)
(they will do either option in this case but the fabricator feels that the seams will all match up better if we do a "bridge")
I've attached a picture of my slab. Thanks!!
