Granite BS Alert: One-Piece (no seam) Granite for L-Shape??
Our granite fabricator just called to say that it is not possible for our L-shaped granite counters to be cut in one piece, and they must have a seam at the "elbow" of the "L." The slab is big enough and in fact the layout they have just shown us shows a single "L" shape, only they have decided a seam is needed--so they will be cutting, and then putting the pieces back together with a seam at the exact location of the cut. They say easier transport is the reason, they will only do it when the shorter piece of the "L" is up to 48 inches, and ours is 70 inches. Is this excessively cautious on their part? I don't want a broken counter but it would be nice to have it be one piece. Also, the granite is Virginia Jet mist polished and 3 cm thick, a dense and strong stone. Will try to post photos.
