    Re: Another Quality HD Installation

    Yes drtyhnds, you can buy a house for 750,000 dollars in my area. You have to remember the real estate market in texas is not nearly as inflated as it is in cal. Also i am in small town texas so a $750,000 house is a whole bunch of house. Everything is relative i suppose.

      ok look at it this way. counter is there now and not broke just wrong. if through drilling or grinding that part cracks?

      Do you think the homeowners will care if the job was done wrong from the get-go or will they be looking for a replacement?

        All ideas are appreciated. I do cover all bases when attempting to correct something like this and remove myself from the liability equation.

        They don't like it, I don't work on it. No worries.

          true. i agree 100%. But if he cant and the worst happens?

          have H.O. sign saying that if it goes bad hes not responsible.

          see right now HD must eat this job if the HO wants to push it but once someone else touches it its a crap shoot.

              What about finding a different faucet that doesn't have the little bulge int he back? It seems like that would be a lot less risky than messing with the granite.

                    You beat me to it,

                    That faucet spout has too much junk in its trunk.

                      yea thought of that first off but even if he found one that didnt rub it'll still be close. BUT hay if the HO dosnt care then its all good i guess.

                          I'll see what the homeowner wants to do.

                          I'm going to suggest that they oval out the hole, move the countertops out, and then change the faucet.

                          Try to get the faucet about 6" away from the backsplash.

                              The faucet thing is typical of what I often see with HD....the homeowner, and "designers" are disconnected from the fabricators, and the fail to realize that you have to spec things like faucets BEFORE you finalize plans for counters and cabinets, so the fabricators can have input on whether something "works". Also, they typically fail to looks at specs on shank length, so when install day comes, they have failed to order the long shank faucet, or the extension kit.

                                all too true. the granite people i deal with wont cut a thing untill they get the actual sink in there hands.
