Granite Slightly Bowed at Seam - What's Acceptable


First time poster here so please excuse any mistakes I may make.

I am normally a DIYer; however, I decided to let the professionals remodel our kitchen. Apparently, the cabinet installer was standing on our 1 day old granite to install our microwave. I don't know if that caused the granite to become unsecured to the cabinets or not, but the caulk has separated and there is a small gap, a little less than 1/4", between the granite and cabinet above the sink. There is about a quarter inch drop over a 3' - 4' run from the middle of the sink to both the left and right sides. Is this acceptable?

Won't allow me to post links, but I've tried and left out the http below:

Thanks!

Defiantly not acceptable.

Have them fix it, any reputable contractor would have no problem recognizing the issue and then making it right.
