Why do I have to have seams in my countertop and what do they look like?

Slab size may not be large enough for the entire run of the countertop. The weight of the material may dictate that seams are inserted so that the structural integrity of the material is not jeopardized. The cabinet structure, placement of cook tops, or other cutouts may require seams. Access to the job or layout of the countertops may be limited and/or difficult to work with. The type of material may require seams to maintain the structural integrity of the material. Tightness of seam will not to exceed 1/16″-1/8″ width. The seam is sealed with a moisture-proof epoxy/plastic that is color-matched to the material to minimize visibility. However no seam is 100% invisible.
