- Dec 12, 2018-

Different seasons have different advantages and disadvantages, but they can all be renovated, but different problems should be paid attention to during the decoration. The decoration of the kitchen is the most important in the home improvement.

Because the kitchen is the most frequently used place in the home. The most important thing about cabinets is the choice of countertop materials. Currently, the common countertop materials on the market are: natural stone, artificial stone acrylic, quartz stone and stainless steel. Quartz stone usage is the highest, why? Because quartz stone has the advantages of wear resistance, scratch resistance, high temperature resistance, penetration resistance, non-toxicity and no radiation, it is also required for cabinet countertops. Quartz stone plates are decorative solid surface materials that can be used in the entire home improvement field. Due to the different fields of application, processing and installation are required in the middle, because the quartz stone manufacturers only ship the plates. There are certain differences in processing in different seasons. Because quartz stone is a brittle polymer composite material, it has certain thermal expansion and contraction characteristics, and has certain mechanical properties such as shrinkage stress, impact toughness and elongation at break.

What issues should be paid attention to when installing quartz stone countertops in winter?

1. Before installation, check the flatness of the cabinet and check whether the size of the quartz stone countertop is completely matched with the cabinet. If an error occurs, the quartz stone countertop needs to be reworked or the cabinet is trimmed.

2. When measuring the depth of the cabinet, the table surface needs to be reserved 4cm in size to facilitate the installation of the lower hanging edge strip.

3. When splicing some super-long table tops (such as L-shaped table tops), in order to ensure the flatness of the splicing table and the tightness of the joints, it is recommended to use a strong fixing clip (A clip, F clip) to fix the quartz stone sheet. In addition, when attaching the hanging strips, it is also necessary to use a strong fixing clip to ensure the perfect combination of the table top stitching and the gap between the table top and the lower hanging strip.

4. There should be a certain distance between the quartz stone countertop and the wall (usually 3mm to 5mm). After the installation is completed, the glass glue should be evenly placed on the gap between the countertop and the wall. Avoid cracking of the table top due to thermal expansion and contraction.
