Kitchen Quality

Yes I know there are machines that do it but the thin piece of edging at the top can get damaged easily.

Waterfall material same as cabinets rather than benchtop

Yes, understand that. You have double that problem if you extend the panels. They mark and damage more easily than caesarstone and it looks terriable.

Overhang

300mm is the maximum overhang that CaesarStone and most other companys will warranty. Anything over that and you risk it snapping.
It may have internal supports but it probably doesn't.

I agree with Chippy. None of my customers have ever complained about undermount sinks either.

Its crazy, a tiled splashback is such an easy job. I cant believe they have much such a meal of it.

Again, the builder is just covering his tiler.
There is no way it came out of the same back if its that different. Ask to see the back and check the…

Join in Caesarstone

The majority of slabs are 3000mm long so having a join is normal but it shouldn't have cracked.

Using a benchtop for a study desk - Where to find?

I can do a custom made top at any size. Do you have the exact sizes and colour of the laminate?

Pantry Next To Cooktop

A narrow pantry internally of around 300mm still works well. Sure you cant store big cereal boxes but most other things fit. Its worth considering.

You cant find pricing as its not like buying something from Bunnings.
The price is determined by the following

Waterfall Edges on Island - Yay or Nay?

The stone tops would have to be manufactured with a waterfall at a later date in mind. If they are not adding a waterfall after would be almost impossible.

Waterfalls have absolutely no benefit on dishwashers at all.
BUT, I think they look amazing on an island unit.

Yes its just plain lazy, taking a major short cut rather than rectifying the mistake properly.

It wont make any difference but its not how it should be done. I wouldn't be happy and would ask them to do it again.
