How to protect the cabinet under the sink from swelling, rotting and moisture.


no way .. it spills .. it was necessary to silicone under the sink bowl.

additional treatment was necessary.

You can see the wallet, since you ask such stupid questions (although they understand this too)

Call the measurer, put a new cabinet

Chipboard is not an option at all. Better ceramics, metal or wood. Both metal and wood need to be varnished or painted or otherwise protected from moisture before installation.

laminated chipboard is cheap to supply, but needs to be changed periodically. it is better to choose coated - enamel. these last a long time.

there should be a high-quality cutting and a well-glued edge. Any chips provide a loophole for moisture to penetrate into the material. If there is already a defect and there are no options to replace, then a polyurethane sealant is taken and the problem area is smeared. Silicone is also better than nothing.

No way. Just use it carefully, and not splash around like a seal.

the pipe should not come into contact with the cabinet (if it is not tiled). if the pipe condenses, then there is a large temperature difference between the top of the pipe and the surrounding air (the coil is essentially also a heating device, and the water in the hot water supply is cold). Porous heat-shielding tubes - cuffs are sold for pipes. ----------------- In order (if the problem is from pipe condensate) to protect the pedestal from swelling, you need to slightly "move" it to the left literally or by reducing the width. It makes sense to paste over with a mosaic and make it moisture resistant. If crazy handles are available, you can come up with many options, except for buying a new cabinet (according to estimated dimensions). Even when laying pipes, you still need to put the cabinet in order or buy it. To put it in order, you will have to disassemble, remove the exfoliated MDF trim, then soak the cut with glue, clamp the swollen sidewall of the frame with a clamp (or replace the frame part with a new one) ... then assemble in the reverse order. ---------- where more reliable are the frames and countertops assembled from moisture-wicking under the sink, which are lined with ceramics
