Re-edging countertop - is it possible?

posted by: odubs on 01.16.2013 at 03:11 pm in Kitchens Forum

Hello,

I'm seeking advice on the quartz countertops that were installed in the home I just recently purchased. The house was brand new and I was able to select (through the home builder) the countertop's material and finish.

I chose to have the counter finished with a 1/4" beveled edge, which cost an additional $300 on top of the $4900 for the quartz countertop upgrade. The finished product ended up as half bullnose. The builder's contractor admits the mistake and is attempting to mediate the solution by altering the existing edges or pay me out with $1050.

Couple questions: Is it possible to correct the edge without losing the dimensions? Is $1050 a fair settlement?

I'd rather not take time off work for them to attempt a solution (altering the counters) that may not work or be to my satisfaction, so my preference would be to have the contractor complete this project with new quartz slabs.
