Cocobolo Detail Trouble

Our job isn’t only to “put blinders on” and do our job as hired but to also keep the owner of the property up to date as to problems that arise.

Such is the case when during the sub-floor prep, I noticed that the granite fireplace hearth was loose, moving and had a crack under the bonding material.

Would it have been OK for me to just say, “not my problem?” Installing my wood floor next to the un-structural slab granite would have created longevity issues, primarily for the stone company and the homeowner.

Before the wood is installed net minus 1/8″ next to the granite, access is easier and readily available for fix! Additional further inspection revealed the granite was not in height tolerance and will need to be raised to flush with wood flooring
