1. Before installing the stone, it is necessary to check the flatness of the cabinets and floor cabinets on site, and check whether there is no error between the tabletop where the stone needs to be installed and the size of the site. If there is an error, it needs to be processed and trimmed again.

2. For some L-shaped countertops or some super long countertops, some strong glass clamps can be used to clamp the stone to squeeze the gap when necessary, and the gap must be cleaned. Here, the editor does not advocate polishing the joints between the stone and the wall, especially some dark stone series.

3. Apply some glass glue evenly on the bottom of the water-retaining strips of the cabinet to bond the water retaining strips. Do not use connecting colloids such as marble glue to prevent it from being bonded. The bonding is too tight and causes cracking or fracture of the stone.

4. If you need to install sinks and other devices, you should first perform some partial repairs on the quartz stone countertops and the water barriers on the countertops, and knock them to check whether they are suspended. For some tiny suspended shapes, we can place them on the back of the stone. Add some glass glue for filling. For some serious unevenness, you need to stop the construction and adjust the cabinet countertop to a flat state.

5. During the on-site construction, try to avoid opening the stone on-site to prevent improper opening and cause cracks in the stone. The missing glass glue can be cleaned with clean water after ten minutes.

6. When installing on the countertop, you need to keep the distance between the stone and the wall. Generally, the gap is as much as 3-5mm. The main purpose of leaving this gap is to prevent stone countertops and cabinets from expanding and contracting in the future. Stretching, after installation, you need to put glass glue on the gap.
