faucet handle clearance above base
I've purchased a chrome 4" centerset and have noticed that the handles sit about 1/8 inch above the base whereas most that I've seen have the bottom of the handle in much closer proximity to the base. The manufacturer states that the gap is necessary to protect the finish but has other models w/o the gap. Is there any good reason for it or is it likely that the handles simply don't fit well for this model?

I'd go with the manufacturer on this one.
