I received an interesting call from a client who said that the bathroom consultant that she is using told her a back splash is required by code for her bathroom sink granite counter tops. My client doesn’t want a back splash.
Is there a code requirement for a back splash? I have renovated many, many bathrooms in my past life and have done them both ways without the municipal inspector telling me that I needed a back splash. I would prefer to see a back splash with proper caulking but thats me and is not the look she is going for.
I’ve looked through the code book but the only requirement I can find is for bathtub and shower spaces. I don’t believe that there is a code considering pedestal sinks or vessel sinks. Any thoughts?
