After cracks appear, how should we stop the cracks from extending and repairing it? After the countertop is cracked, a round hole drill should be used to drill the top of the crack extension direction to prevent the countertop from continuing to crack. The repair should be performed by professionals. First, the cracks need to be embedded; then glue is prepared and poured into the embedded seams; after the glue is completely cured, polishing is performed. However, there will be traces after the quartz stone is repaired, which will have a certain impact on the overall aesthetics. Reminder: Brand quartz stone plate manufacturers have a one-year warranty period. If the cracking problem caused by the plate’s own problems, you can apply for the manufacturer’s after-sales service to request a new countertop during the warranty period.
