Frequently Asked Questions
Does La Bastille offer a warranty on its products?
We offer a one-year limited warranty on all of our projects to ensure the satisfaction of our clients. Please note this does not include markings on the top due to the expected process of patina.This is just one of the ways we show our customers that they are important to us and at La Bastille and quality matters.

Will there be seams in my countertop?
Casting allows us to craft large surface areas with very few seams and therefore we are often asked to create a seamless top. We can often achieve this but not always. Our seam limitations are often not determined by the material, as is the case with sheet metal, but by transportation and job site constraints.
When seams are unavoidable, we place them in a location that makes the most sense in the design. We can walk your contractor through how to join the seam in an inconspicuous manner so that it is not noticeable. It is important to note that there is virtually no way to create a seamless seam even if La Bastille performs the seaming. The good news is that as the bar top ages, the seams become less noticeable.
