Should I get a discount on botched countertop install?
Beautiful Silestone counters were installed. The seam is flawless, the edges by our posts are tight and clean. But. We have one end run of the countertop on which sits shelves (and to its right a pantry.) Somehow the installers only took their precise measurements to te beginning of the shelves--even though the shelves were sitting on top loose and the GC showed it to them so now the counters and cabinet shelves are installed (I don't know why GC didn't stop at that point) and there is a gap between the countertop and right wall of shelves. The microwave will sit inside there and the GC says he can put in molding to hide--I don't want a quartz mini backsplash as the installer/fabricator offered (same person/company).
What do I do? Should I just put matching molding to avoid spills and then ask for a discount or something else? How much % would be fair. It was a substantial cost to us.
