Countertop Seams

Will my countertops need to have a seam?

There are many factors that we use to determine seam locations, such as:

  • Grain direction [movement] in the granite.
  • Actual slab size of current inventory.
  • Layout of the project.

Useable size and location of defects will determine slab yield.

Final placement of seams will not be determined until production. Our fabricators use experience and judgment to best utilize the material.

Also, the following must be considered for seam placement logistics:

  • Weight
  • Handling
  • Location
  • Safety
  • Avoidance of breakage

It is likely there will be seams at corners (right angle corners) to facilitate the above logistical considerations.

NOTE: The seams will be visible and felt by touch of the hand.
