Caesarstone performs a visual inspection for imperfections on the front and back of all slabs, including the perimeter, before cutting.
Imperfections may include:
Caesarstone will not accept claims for any of the above if the slab is modified in any way. The fabricator is responsible for determining if the slabs are fit for use. If they are not, they should be exchanged before the slabs are cut or modified in any way.
