Question about Cooktops
We recently had grantite countertops installed. We had a new range on site when the templating was done, and new tile floors installed as well. When everything was done (granite, backsplash, tile floor), the new slide-in range is 1/2" above the counter surface on all 3 sides. What went wrong? Did the granite contractor not measure something? They have recommended drilling holes in the tile floor for the range legs to set in. Is there something else that can be done at this stage.
Thanks for your help!
Suspect your contractor didn't allow for the tiled floor. the range legs are usually adjustable up and down. have you checked this?

Normally cabinets are installed on top of tile. I'm assuming the tile that you had installed did not get installed under the cabinets but it did get installed under the range. This creates a different height that the range is designed to adjust for. The granite needs to be directly on the cabinets unless the customer or home owner specifies differently. Hope this helps.

Granite contractor should have had enough common sense to allow for a tiled floor.
however, what is the granite worktop resting on? presumably on kitchin units which should have in turn, adjustable legs (they do hear in England anyway) maybe you have a solution in adjusting the legs of the units. it will be laborious as you will probably have to use a jack due to the weight of the granite worktop.
cornwall where i live is made mostly of granite by the way
