My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Virginia
I am remodeling a kitchen. I clearly communicated to the designer at cabinet company what I wanted with regard to an island design, i.e., a raised bar. That is not disputed. The granite was cut according to the plan, which I was asked to approve, but the plan was incorrect in that it did not allow for enough of an overhang for the bar area. I now need to purchase another piece of granite to get it right. There were other errors in the cabinet sizes due to drawing inaccuracies. I also approved those plans but in that case the company corrected the error by absorbing the cost (a much less costly fix). The question is, if I have communicated what I want, is it then my responsibility to check all of the drawings for measurement errors? Is that not what I hire a contractor/designer to do, i.e., to create the plans for my vision? If an error is made, who carries the burden of the cost to make it right?
