Durata® The Best Commercial and Residential Wood Countertop Finish
Wood Countertops with Durata® Finish can be used for food preparation, such as rolling dough or making sandwiches. Do not chop directly on the wood countertop as the knife will break the finish and eliminate the protective properties in the process, use a cutting board. Durata® on bar tops offers a waterproof finish, so spilled drinks and water rings are not a concern. Grothouse also offers the Grothouse Original food safe oil finish for clients desiring to have a finish suitable for direct chopping and use in “Green” environments. It has a flat sheen, and ongoing oiling of the wood creates a deep rich patina.
Butcher Block Countertops manufactured by Grothouse can be safely used with undermount sinks. The opening is properly sealed with an invisible barrier to protect from water damage. The butcher block will overhang the sink opening by roughly 1/8″ so the top lip of the sink is not visible. If the sink is custom manufactured, it may require you to send the sink to Grothouse to assure we cut a proper sink opening size. Butcher Blocks with Undermount Sinks are not available to be finished with our Durata® Permanent Finish and cannot have a stain application. Butcher Blocks are always finished with Grothouse Original Oil™.
