What are seams in countertops? (Shelby Township, MI)

A seam is where two pieces of stone join together. Seams in granite countertops are used for a number of reasons.

   When the stone you choose isn’t long enough or wide enough for your project.

   To reduce the chance of breakage during transporting and installing.

   To save you money.

Granite is usually mined from the quarry in rectangular blocks no more than 10′ long and on average, 4′ to 6′ wide. Since granite is a natural material, these dimensions will vary. Try drawing your plans for granite countertops on a sheet of paper to see if and where you might have seams.

Why Some Seams Fail?

Most seams fail due to stress along the seam line.
Examples:

   Settling of the cabinets.

   Movement of the floor.

   Uneven counters.

   Insufficient support of the granite countertop when it was installed.
