For kitchen decoration, everyone recommends quartz stone countertops. Quartz stone is a kind of artificially synthesized stone made of quartz crystals. Because the main material is quartz sand, the quartz stone itself has high density, high hardness, and is not easy to scratch. It has the same permeability and The water absorption is relatively poor. The good performance of quartz stone has become the first in today's kitchen and is highly sought after by people. So, how to install the cabinet quartz stone countertops? What are the precautions for installing quartz stone countertops? Let us understand together below.

 

How to install the cabinet quartz countertop

 

1. Check the installation site

 

Before installation, you must do a good job of inspection, carefully look at the flatness of the cabinets and floor cabinets, and check whether there is no error between the size of the countertop and the site. If there is an error, you must adjust it in time. Don't start installing at the beginning. , Wait until the later stage to find the size error, it wasted the energy spent in the front.

 

2. Leave a seam

 

When measuring the depth of the cabinet, it is necessary to reserve a gap of 3-5mm between the countertop and the wall. The main purpose of the gap is to prevent the expansion and contraction of the back surface and the cabinet from stretching. At the same time, don't forget to make the gap in this link. Put glue everywhere.

 

3. Install the sink

 

When installing the sink, the quartz stone countertop and the water barrier on the countertop should be partially trimmed in advance, and then knocked to check whether it is suspended. For small suspensions in some places, you can add some glass glue to the back and bottom of the stone. filling.

4. Splicing countertops

 

When splicing some extra-long countertops (such as L-shaped countertops), in order to ensure the flatness of the spliced countertops and the rigidity of the joints, it is recommended to use strong fixing clips (A clip, F clip) to fix the quartz stone plate. In addition, when bonding the lower hanging strips, a strong fixing clip should also be used to fix it to ensure the perfect combination of the countertop splicing and the gap between the countertop and the lower hanging strip.

 

5. Deal with gaps

 

After the installation of the countertop is completed, the gap should be dealt with. The treatment of the gap cannot be ignored. In order to make the installation effect better, you can use a strong glass clip to clamp the table top to squeeze the gap. In addition, you must clean up the gaps and do not leave some dirt to affect future use.

 

6. Waterproof treatment

 

Since water is often used in daily cooking, waterproof work must be done in place. In this step, you can evenly apply some coloring glue on the bottom of the water retaining strip of the cabinet to stick the water retaining strips together one by one. Do not recommend colloids such as marble glue.

Precautions for installation of quartz stone countertops

 

1. In the countertop installation, try to avoid large-scale cutting and opening of quartz stone at the construction site. On the one hand, it is to prevent the cutting dust from polluting the construction site, and on the other hand, it is to prevent errors caused by inaccurate cutting.

 

2. When designing the opening position of the stove, the opening position of the countertop should be greater than or equal to 8 cm from the edge of the countertop to prevent the countertop from cracking. When opening the stovetop, first use a cutting machine or a jig saw to make the hole. Then use a gong machine or a hand grinder to polish the edges to achieve a smooth effect. The radius of the four corners is basically uniform. Because the jig saw and cutting machine open holes, there are serration marks on the periphery of the cut holes, and there are residual cracks, which are easy to cause cracks. Cracks in the hole.

 

3. Quartz stone is generally installed by splicing. When choosing the splicing position, try to avoid corners and furnace mouths. Since quartz stone has the characteristics of thermal expansion and contraction, if it is near the fire or corner, it may crack.

 

4. When the quartz stone countertop is installed, the place where the countertop is connected to the sink will be marked with transparent glass glue. Before gluing, you must check whether the outer packaging of the glass glue is marked with anti-mold function. After gluing, you must urge workers to clean up the excess glue in time.

 

5. Due to the high hardness and density of quartz stone countertops, the processing technology requirements are high. Therefore, for the installation of quartz stone countertops, you should contact a professional quartz stone installer and use professional tools to install it. You must not install it blindly by yourself to avoid unnecessary trouble.
