Question DetailsAsked on 1/4/2012

Does the triple water fall granite edge chip easily? Is it viable for a kitchen? Is an ogee edge better?

My fabricator wants me to sign a disclosure that the waterfall edge is too thin and will chip easily on the bottom. It this something I should be worried about? Has anyone else had issues with the triple waterfall edge?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Seams are the weakest point of granite and if the triple waterfall is composed of multiple slabs it has a "greater" chance of being problematic.

Take a look at these example pics below:

Multiple Seams / Separate Slabs

Single Slab



If your fabricator is asking you to sign a disclosure that is related to their fabrication of the slab - tell them no and explore other fabrication options if they dont agree to perform the job. You want them to be liable for the quality of their work.

If they are asking to be removed from risk after successful fabricationa and/or installation (if they are installing), this is something you can choose to consider indemnifying them from.
