We're remodeling our kitchen and installing new cabinets, granite countertops, and a dropin cooktop. Even though our granite slab is long enough for the counter, our fabricator says we need a seam at the cutout for the cooktop to prevent it from breaking during transportation and installation. Since it's a dropin cooktop with no front apron, there would be a seam in the middle of the front and back strips of granite. Has anybody heard of this? We would prefer not to have a seam.
