Uneven glass enclosure gap - your thoughts?

A coworker had his bathroom remodeled and showed me photos of the glass enclosure. He is very unhappy with the uneven gap between the glass and the horizontal surface, which seems to be the result of poor measurement/execution by the glass company. In your view, would this be considered "acceptable", or does he have reasonable grounds to expect that they fix this at their expense?

looks pretty rough to me. if it's out more than 1/8" in that short of a run i'd complain.

side note...very hard to tell what is going on in this bathroom...i can't tell what is reflection and what is in the room. is that a coffee maker/dispenser?

Agreed - he says the taper is from 1/16" on one end to 1/4" on the other, pretty bad. Here's another view if that helps.

If my glass company had done their own measurements, there is no way they would have installed something like that. Not acceptable at all to my thinking.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Are there any "standards" for this type of workmanship that he can point to? I recall that when I got my shower glass and wasn't too happy with it because it was warped, the contractor stated that it was within "industry standard practices" of 1/8" warpage in a panel. Is there a similar standard or rule of thumb for the gap uniformity? Or just that it's really ugly?

looks to me like they didnt take into consideration that the tub deck is sloped for drainage away from tub and cut everything plumb and square?

The seam on the edge of the quartz/granite is awful as well

That's my guess too!
