Taking the Shame

My marble guy called me before I had a chance to call him, checking to see my satisfaction with the new counter top. I had to express my disappointment with the installation of the backsplash, and he graciously came by to check it out with his installer. In their Sicilian-Italian, I was able to discern “not right” and “mess”. It was agreed that they wouldn’t be able to re-do the backsplash, so they offered a few solutions:

1) place another thin piece of marble on top of the gap that would be about 7″ high, forming a higher up backsplash. My least favorite option.

2) install a tile backsplash.

3) fill the wall with drywall and feather it up the side of the old cabinet.

I’m just happy that they’ve acknowledged the shoddy work and are willing to do something about it, whether I take them up on their offer or not. They’re taking the shame. I’ve forwarded their suggestions to my architect. He’s the decider.
