Bay window countertop stone paving

When paving the countertops of the bay window, the general decorator will first open a slot on the outer three edges, and then use cement to lay the stone panel. Bay window countertops must strengthen the strength of the countertop before laying the slab, to prevent the slab from breaking due to pressurization and excessive load bearing. Most of the decorators will choose to reinforce the lower edge of the sill countertop as a double-layered edge. Before laying the stone on the countertop, it is necessary to carefully check whether the foundation of the countertop is flat. The uneven foundation is often the most important cause of slab fracture in the later stage. Generally, we recommend laying a layer of large core plate for decoration on the bottom of the stone board to ensure the smoothness of the stone contact surface. After the table surface is covered, the glass glue can be applied.

The stone countertops of the kitchen have higher performance requirements for waterproofing and heat resistance when paving. Kitchen stone countertops need to be protected by double-layer stone. In the process of sticking, the principle of uniform flatness must be followed to ensure sufficient strength of the stone countertop. In terms of heat resistance, the shovel of the kitchen countertop must be sanded to a smooth state without blunt edges, and a tin foil insulation layer is added at the bottom of the stone. A thermal insulation layer such as wood is required near the bottom of the cooktop. Strengthen the heat insulation effect to prevent the stone countertop from aging rapidly due to local overheating around the cooktop and shorten the service life.
