Backsplash tile to counter or is counter trim piece needed?

8 years ago

I'm sure this question has been asked, but I'm having trouble getting the right search terms to find it. Our builder is arguing with the architect (again:) so I'm looking for knowledge. He says you need a piece of granite around the back edge of the granite counter even if you have a tile backsplash on the wall. Architect says no way, bring the tile right down to the counter edge. Builder says that is a recipe for water problem. I see both in pics here on Houzz so I was wondering if anyone could summarize the conventional wisdom for me. Is this just purely a matter of aesthetics? Thanks!
