Well it IS a 4x4 - but so far, where I've taken it it didn't get a full bush bashing!! Looks like it's been keyed, all down two doors and scratched the front light as well. (No roo bar as yet) I've only had it just over a year...

Maybe I will claim Melsie, but have to check on no claim bonus...
Yes I too am having to embrace the lived in look "sigh". Fingers crossed the price won't be too bad, and I reckon everyone will now try to take care a similar thing doesn't happen again

oh no Mels I really hope you can get it fixed for not too much. Bet your daughter is feeling really bad about it too - even though she might not show it. Accidents, eh!

Bloody accidents he he .well I rang a company dr stone he said $250 . He said he does this everyday so he knows what he is doing . I would rather pay more to know I will be happy .he said would never be prefect but its half way down the waterfall edge so not a spot you look at . Just waiting for tomorrow for the company who put my stone in to contact me and see what they recon .
Its funny coz now I know it can get fixed I might wait a bit lol

Its actually really easy to chip .I actually just missed judged a plate and put a really tiny chip on the bench (corner ) been fixed though cant see it now . I really like the look of stone .I have it in my bathrooms and laundry but I dont think they are that practical with moving children lol . Or even clumsy adults . He he .but its good to know chips can be fixed but at a cost .

I did the same thing getting a cup out of the dishwasher. luckily it was underneath so you couldn't see it. I have told the kids and oh we are having all plastic things in the en suits and bathrooms. I will be going in after everyone checking the stone like a mad women

Oh no Melsie!! I am surprised how easily stone bench tops can chip. I have a chip already too. don't even know how it got there. They recon that corona is easy to fix, but i might wait a little longer before getting it fixed....just in case.

Lol sharry . I think the same thing when kids go in bathroom . I had some scented glass things in there .toke them out .just gotta wait till kids move out of home for some things . Even toke toilet brush out and extra toliet roll container things out of toilet . I now here kids yell out for more toilet paper lol .
Tonk I was thinking the same thing . I was a mad women when it happened .but now I might wait a while . It would help if stone person would contact me back though .at least I know that I can fix it and don't need my builder to organise it . Because it would never get fixed lol

Geez Mels that is quite a chip - you have me worried now that the essastone is so easily chipped Good to know it can be fixed but why does it chip so easily grrrrr
Re: Melsie 681578

wow so sorry to hear about the chip, but it sounds very fixable!
But now I'm concerned about my top as I didn't want stone as I am afraid of chipping even though we're pretty careful people! (I have an issue with chipped crockery so can only imagine what I'd be like with chipped stone tops!) I was just commenting on my own thread how we're going undermount sink as I prefer not seeing the lines around the sink and how we'll run the risk of chipping.. and now reading your thread it sounds like chipping is so easy to do.
Ah well I can't do anything about it. And it's definitely a 1st world problem. And too late to be thinking about these sorts of things

I think because I'm so careful things happen lol . That's a pretty major chip . I also chipped my bench on the top with a plate and that was only because I miss judged .daydreaming I think and it hit a edge .
Under mount sinks you do need to be extra careful because there is stone there .
Only I can wash dishes in my house lol .
But remember most chips can be fixed and most people aren't going to hit there bench with a steel leg lol .
I will put pictures up when I get chip fixed .which will be after the school holidays . Hopefully before and after shots will wow everyone .

I can't wait for the big reveal and the before and after shots! I wonder if they charge $250 for each chip? That would be a bit steep!
