  Granite Countertop Seam
Granite Countertop Seam Sign In/Join 
I am buying home and close on it next week. The final walk-through with the builder is Monday. One issue I saw while visiting today is a seam in the granite counter top. I saw no seams like this in the model homes, and really thought it was too noticeable. I can see it from across the kitchen. Am I being too picky? I do not know the inside and outs of granite, so please bear with me. Do you think this is proper fabrication? Thanks for any input you can give me.

Granite usually has seams. Slabs are only so large. The seams depend on the size of the slab, the countertop pattern that is being cut out, etc. You can't cut a large L shape out of one piece, etc. In the model home, I'm sure that they chose the granite pattern wisely and had the fabricator take extra care in what he did for them.

Granite worktops are usually created by joining two slabs together to create one large piece. This is done by using a special epoxy. The seam should usually match the colour of the granite. This should be able to be fixed by some sanding and polishing.
