Question about granite install
Hi everyone, first I want to say, I really have enjoyed viewing your kitchens and getting lots of ideas and tips from you all. This forum has made the remodeling process so much easier.
Things were going pretty good until the granite install. IÃ¢ÂÂm not sure what I should accept. First picture is where granite meets wall, and itÃ¢ÂÂs about ÃÂ¼ of an inch of a gap Second picture is the left side that too is ÃÂ¼ of an inch, but a backsplash is going on that side along with tile trim, so IÃ¢ÂÂm assuming the ÃÂ¼ of an inch wonÃ¢ÂÂt matter as much on that side. IÃ¢ÂÂm not sure if this is correct.
Next picture is where granite meets built in refrigerator wall, IÃ¢ÂÂve been told granite is off because my walls arenÃ¢ÂÂt level, but this wall should be level. ItÃ¢ÂÂs not as big a gap 3/16, but I still think it looks sloppy. The lady managing the job, said that she had a restoration man that can fill in the gaps with an epoxy and it will look really good. She said he does a lot of restoration work and he does really good color matching. She said only way to completely fix it would be to replace it, but then there might be other problems, and damage done to floors etc. This does concern me, because IÃ¢ÂÂm pretty sure granite people put a ding in brand new refrigerator, but I canÃ¢ÂÂt prove it. I really donÃ¢ÂÂt know what to do, some people who see it, donÃ¢ÂÂt think itÃ¢ÂÂs that big of deal. IÃ¢ÂÂm not even sure that the contractor will replace the granite, but I donÃ¢ÂÂt know what I should expect? Thank you for any help you can give me.
