I had granite installed in my kitchen in 2009 by Pando Flooring. The granite had white cloudy spots in it at various spots in the granite. One is the size of my palm and resides at the edge where my stools sit. Basically right in the spot where you would sit down and eat. It is the very first thing you see when you look at my granite countertop and it looks horrible. I understand small spots, the size of a coin or less but not a spot the size of a hand. It looks like someone spilled and didn't clean it up. I was unable to be there for the installation because my husband was deployed and I did not have time off of work so I trusted Pando to install granite that would look presentable and decent. When I called to complain because it is so noticeable and ruins the whole look of the countertop, I was told by Pando flooring that this
spotting" was normal. And if I didn't like it to "put a plant or other centerpiece on it to cover it up". This would be like putting a plant directly in front of someone??s place at the dinner table right at the edge. I didn't pay to cover up my granite, to be embarrassed by it or to hate looking at it every time I walk into my brand new kitchen. I would not recommend Pando flooring because I felt like I was taken advantage of and then told "too bad" when I complained about the faulty granite. I had two other granite companies come and look at the "spots" and they said that they would have never installed that piece of granite, that the spot was too large and defective. Granite is not supposed to be perfect, and the rest of granite is not even close, but it also isn't supposed to look like someone made a mess and didn't clean it up. I paid very good money for the granite in my kitchen and now have to live with looking at something I feel ruins my whole kitchen. People who come to my house immediately make comments about it and how bad it looks.
