what to check for when your stone counters get installed
It's been hard to read all the threads about shoddy countertop work. I thought it would be useful to collect a thread about how handle the important pre-, during-, and post-installation phase to prevent and pursue remedy for installation problems. It sounds like one often has to play hardball with the contractor, and most of us are not experts on that.
I'd welcome thoughts on:
1. what to do before installation?
2. what to inspect after installation?
3. how to handle final payment?
