    Very disappointed. The glaze is a different color than my sink and there are places where the glaze clumped. This is terrible and my sink looks worse than it did before.

    Mike S. from General Home Improvements replied to this review on November 27, 2012:

    ***** ATTENTION ***** TO EVERYONE THAT HAS SEEN THIS REVIEW.... THIS SINK WAS CRACKED SO BAD THAT YOU COULD SEE
    THROUGH IT... I ADVISED THE CLIENT THAT THE COLOR WAS NOT GOING TO BE EXACT AND SHE SHOULD REPLACE THE SINK, BUT SHE REFUSED AND WANTED TO TRY AND COVER THE PROBLEM FOR A QUICK SALE ON HER CONDO.... PLEASE DON'T LET ONE ROTTEN APPLE SPOIL THE WHOLE BUNCH.... WE STAND BEHIND EVERY JOB WE DO.... THANK YOU G.H.I.
