Granite seams at sink - it depends?
My fabricator nearly always seams at sinks, because a high percentage of the time when he doesn't the slab breaks during transport as there is so little material - it is easy for 4 guys to twist slightly and snap it.
But my slab is gneiss and has lots of long, lovely lines - so I'm worried getting a nice seam will be difficult. And my counters are extra deep at 29" with a sink cutout that will be less than 18" front to back. The run is 115", the sink will be about 35" from one end and only 28" wide. I do not think the gniess is brittle, the slab edges were perfect and my broken sample could be glued back without noticing the line, there was no crumbling. It is 128" long.
This is for the cleanup zone, on the left side. The island will be one slab, and the cooking wall run will likely have a bridge behind the KA rangetop.
Are there other factors to consider as I prepare to make my case for no seam?
