Granite seam problem

Any opinions about this seam? I don't understand why they did the short angle which cause a big chip that they glued back in.

I'm not an expert by any means, just a picky home owner, and that doesn't look right. I think I saw your post in another thread. I'd be ticked if that was mine.

Yeah, I'm not happy about it. Thanks. I'm new to this forum and am a posting maniac right now to be sure it gets seen:)

That's terrible. I hope you have not paid in full yet. If so, I hope it was by credit card.

Unacceptable. Have you spoken with them yet?

I agree - that seam is terrible and not acceptable. I've seen many finished counter-tops that appears to be a mistake. Contact your granite fabricator and have them replace it.

Thanks. I'm glad others see the same thing. The fabricator rep and I are meeting next week.

I'm not an expert by any means, but my fabricator called that a Euro seam. That is the kind that is slated to go in my granite. He explained they use a vacuum process to make the seam as invisible as possible. There must be a good reason they use it, but it does not look like yours as well executed. I would certainly not be pleased with that, but hopefully they can fix it on site to meet your expectations.

They just need to color match the epoxy better. The seam itself isn't an issue. It does't even look like they have any epoxy in the seam.

Very helpful comments. Thank you. The fabricator is a Sacramento, CA, Home Depot contractor, and they were very responsive when they saw the picture. I will post after the inspection next week.

That is a euro-miter, usually they are done to get better yield out of the slabs. Some companies prefer them because they use equipment that will only do straight runs. ( no "L" shaped pieces). It is fairly common.
They should be able to improve the chipped and filled area.
