6 1/2 months granite seam separating....Why?

10 years ago

Hi gang. I've heard all about new houses that settle. I see that the lovely caulk job I did on my tile has cracked now between the back splash and the counter (a lot). I figured, no big deal, I'll re-caulk.

BUT tonight, I noticed the seam in the granite is separating!

Is this something that is normal? Should I call the builder or the granite fabricator? I'm on very good terms with the fabricator, but they are 1.5-2 hours from here, so it's not a quick fix. They are a very reputable company and the seam was indeed done right. But should the house be settling this much?

The counters were installed in early May.
