  Granite Countertop Seam in Home I am soon to close on?
Granite Countertop Seam in Home I am soon to close on? 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.

No you are not picky. Bring it up at your walk-through and tell them you want it fixed before closing.

That's not acceptable. Make sure they fix it before the closing. We are builders and would have a very loud word with our granite installers if they left the job like that. Black or dark counters are hard to hide the seams though but it can be better.
