Whipperwill: A contractor has expenses, which include insurances of all types, and subs to pay, and hidden material/supply costs you likely would not even consider. An organized, professional contractor knows what he must pay himself, just to stay in business. If some of his profit is not in your chosen materials, the profit will be in something else. Contractors are like all others in business. They don't do what they do to help you out... they do it for a living and PROFIT. Be clear upfront, as to who is providing what. As a designer, I highly recommend to clients that they NOT purchase on their unless they would like to be responsible for all aspects involved, which include pick ups, deliveries, faulty parts, missing parts, late arrivals, timing of delivery...etc. Because I delegate that nasty responsibility to the contractor.

"The contractor makes money on every dollar spent, so their overhead is covered in every hammer swing" ...
Is that a problem that he should "cover" his overhead,( ?) as one would logically assume he needs to do that before he makes a thin dime. If you can hire someone for labor/ time alone you can also be assured he will price it accordingly, to "cover" and profit. What a dirty word that profit word is. You are paying for expertise hopefully, and often for a few decades of the experience required to achieve that expertise. You most often get exactly what you pay for. As the homeowner and funder of the project, you may obviously choose per your particular preferences. .... but personally I want people to profit, or soon there would be nobody to actually do the work.
I will add that no contractor has ever asked a homeowner to justify his home or income, but ask any contractor how often the same question is posed to him, not so thinly veiled in requests for breakdowns of every nail, and bucket of drywall that will be used on a project.....

Not that I am personally aware of. Sharp makes many/most of the units and as far as I am aware, 24" is it.

In Canada, lead-based paints are also prohibited. That aside, I prefer my tile backsplash. It adds texture to the room and is easy to clean, which I do about once every 6 months. No big deal. To each their own.
