I'm just looking for some advice with regards to our worktop. We had our £12500 kitchen installed mid September and had nothing but problems with the installation. I won't at this stage say which company installed it. If anyone would be so kind to look at the pictures of our issue below and make comment, it would be greatly appreciated. The companies installation manager recently came out and has sent us the following response to our concerns! I wonder whether he would place these photos in their showroom if there is no issue, as I bet he wouldn't. A concern regarding the worktop joint was raised. It was explained that this area appeared not to be as flat as the surrounding area which was demonstrated by a plate being placed on area to demonstrate a rocking motion. Following a very close inspection of the joint and the way it was formed I could find nothing that I considered outside of the normal for such areas on a worksurface. The joint was well made and tight with no obvious gap or sign of moisture ingression. I would not consider this joint to be faulty in anyway, however there is a possibility that it is being slightly pushed up by the bolts below being marginally to tight. I would be willing to arrange that an installer attend to check this by removing washing machine and loosening bolts a small amount and at the same time ensuring contact adhesive is used to ensure the laminate surface is not in anyway separating. For your assistance and information It should be noted that the area of a worktop joint should always be kept dry and appliances such as kettles and toasters not placed directly on or adjacent as this could lead to bubbling of the area through moisture ingression which is not covered under the terms of a kitchen warrantee.
