Examples of bad natural stone countertop installation

When you decide to install natural stone worktops in your kitchen, bathroom, or any other part of your home, you will need to consider several factors. Apart from selecting the right kind of stone, the appropriate colour and pattern. Once you have the perfect fit for your home, it’s time to think about the installation process.

The first important point to remember is that a professional installation is ideal. Not only will it make your life easier but, when you hire an experienced professional, you will enjoy added peace of mind.

When you purchase your stone worktops, ask about installation. In most cases, they will have a skilled team on hand and ready to handle the installation for you. One of the main problems that could be encountered is damage caused to the stone. Natural stone can get cracked or chipped during installation. For the most part, these kinds of damages can be repaired.

If the installation team lacks the right skills or experience, they might not install the worktops correctly. They might fail to align the stone or they might not seal it properly. If the worktops are not properly supported, they could start to sag and this could result in cracks and other damage as a result.

Before hiring a team, you should look into their credentials and confirm the warranty on their work. If they are reputable, they should be more than happy to stand by their work.
