Diagnosis

Cutting surface cracks

Counter between the stove and the sink cracked

Problem diagnosis: 1, and open hole improper may caused cracking, regardless of is sink also is stove of hole, its around should is arc of, open hole Hou, also should in hole around added loaded a layer pad, increased bearing force; 2, and in "l" shaped and "u" shaped table Xia, if Cabinet body installation not flat, late Cabinet body sinking deformation, easy led to table of corner at appeared crack.
