Granite backsplash over beadboard?

New to the site. Hope I am posting in the correct area. Just bought our house. We have a beadboard backsplash in our kitchen and granite countertops. I love the beadboard ,but behind my sink water has penetrated at the base and now the beadboard has expanded. It looks crummy.I would like to put a granite backsplash behind my sink to match my countertop. I plan to leave the other beadboard in place.The granite company wants to put the granite directly over the beadboard. He explained that it is a nightmare to remove the beadboard. Has anyone ever done this? How hard is it to remove the beadboard and make the surface flat again for the granite to attach? My other concern is that the granite will have to stick out a bit I do not remove the beadboard first. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

just replac'd our c-tops & the installers want'd to place the new granite backsplash against existing tile backsplash,,, i cut the tile & they fitt'd into place just as easy as i told it it would be,,, yours is no different other'n you've got wood, not tile,,, battery-power'd 4 1/2" circle saw & a straight line's all you need im-n-s-h-fo :laughing: not a nightmare at all,,, our granite does protude in front of the tile elevation but it looks perfect :thumbup: as i told my bride it would ! ! !
could it be your house's settled a bit ? ? ? that's not uncommon at all.

we installed our backsplash on ' feet ' made from teflon - just something i remember'd from building cemetery monuments.
