Uneven overhang problem: what to do?
We had our Cambria countertops installed 4 days ago. Even though DH was there during the measurement and installation checking that it was done properly (heÃ¯Â¿Â½s a very detail-oriented engineer) there is a problem. The left leg of the U-shape has a shorter overhang than the rest of the U, by about a half inch, which was not apparent to us until closer inspection by DH the evening of the installation. We were blinded by how beautiful the countertops are, by the way they made the one seam totally invisible, and by the fact that at last we had countertops! What can I say, excitement got the better of us.
We had the head of production at the countertop place come look at the problem this morning and he said that they can remove the defective side, recut, and replace it so the overhang is the same all around. We however, keep looking at the beautiful seam and fear we might not get another one like that since even the guy this morning seemed amazed at how perfect it was. DH thinks we might regret rocking the boat by having them take that piece out with a heat gun and try to get the seam to look like that again, not to mention having to cut the silicone and scrape it off the cabinets so they can re-glue. Then again, we paid almost 5k for the countertops (which is not an insignificant amount for us) so we feel for that much they should be perfect.
What to do? Let it go or take a chance?
Pictures of countertop attached. Overhang problem is on the opposite side of the stools, sorry, can't see clearly on the picture.
