Plumbing – Faucet supposed to stick out this far


A local plumbing company installed my tub/shower. In my uneducated opinion, this faucet doesn't look right and seems to be sticking too far out. Should it look like this? I don't want to be overly picky, but I did pay a decent chunk of change and want it done right.

That's just.... nasty. The spout looks fine but the faucet is both too far out and not square. There's a large gap at the base that looks like it can leak water into the wall space.

The "plumber" was either drunk, half-asleep or incompetent. There is no excuse for work that sloppy.
