Stone experts--1/4" gap between wall and counter--acceptable?
SO--they came and put in the rest of my counters yesterday...while I was out at a doctor's appointment. DH supervised...they fixed the rough edge on one counter, and repaired the bad seam next to the sink. He was reasonably pleased with the repairs. (He's still not 100% happy with the seam...but it looks ok to me.)
Unfortunately, he missed the 1/4" gap between the newly installed counter and the wall. And we were NOT planning on having till all the way to the pass through. Pictures would help, I suppose:
Tile is SUPPOSED to stop at the inner edge of the blue tape. I guess we could continue it to the pass through...but I'm not certain it's thick enough, even with adhesive behind it, to over the gap:
And then there's this oddity--which I think we could minimize with a piece of trim...but it just doesn't LOOK right:
This is only the second complete kitchen I've done--and my first time with Caeserstone. Is this acceptable? It's an older house (1966)...so it's entirely possible my walls are not perfectly square and plumb...but I thought templating took that into account?
Should the templating guy have pointed out that weird little notch? Or was it my responsibility to notice that? I honestly don't know.
Regardless...looks like I may have to postpone the range delivery again...(Installer won't put it in until the counters are in place.) Unless y'all think the above is within acceptable tolerances. Then I'll figure out a way to make it work.
I've emailed the install supervisor from the stone company, and I've emailed my GC with pictures. GC is out of town for the next week, visiting his grandson who is finally in remission from leukemia...but I'll call him if I y'all think this is unacceptable and I don't get anywhere with the stone guys.
