Timber benchtops are warm to touch and will age beautifully with time. Our tops can be polished upon request, with a Two Pack Polyurthane finish, that protects the surface, usually giving a higher gloss finish and is more durable and requires less maintenance than an oiled timber benchtop.
A Two Pack finish forms an impenetrable protective film on the surface of the wood. This film provides a high level of protection.
Never let wear go through the protective coating of the top. It is important to recoat the timber, before the surface is exposed. A light sand and recoat will make the top look like new. If the coating is worn through to the timber, then the top should be re-sanded back to raw wood and coated as if it was a new top. To help maintain it’s good looks, suppliers recommend that your timber benchtops be recoated every two to three years to protect the surface. However, this is not necessary, just recommended.
Everyday cleaning of tops, just use a damp cloth with a little detergent!
To maintain tops, doors and all timber products, you can use a good furniture polish.
