Designing Wood Countertops with Sinks
Designing wood countertops with sinks is no different from designing with other countertop surfaces. Our Durata® finish is commonly used to ensure a waterproof surface, and when using Durata®, we prefer to handle all the faucet hole cutouts to ensure they are sealed with our exclusive finish. By having Grothouse handle all the surface cutouts, there is no worry of damage to the wood countertop in the event of a faucet leak when sealed with Durata®.
Countertops with our Grothouse Original Oil™ finish can have a sink as we ensure an invisible sealer is applied to the sink opening to protect from water. Countertops with Grothouse Original Oil™ finish should not be exposed to standing water, and drips should be promptly dried.
It is imperative that our installation instructions are followed to provide a lifetime of use. Our installation instructions arrive with every shipment. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding proper installation of your Grothouse countertop.
Wood Countertops with Undermount Sinks
Wood countertops with undermount sinks are our preferred method of using a wood countertop with a sink. We recommend the sink opening begin no less than 3″ from the countertop edge. Undermount or farmhouse style sinks can be cut out using the factory-supplied template or dxf drawings. Careful attention is paid to ensure the placement is proper for wood countertops with sinks.
Wood Countertops with Integral Sinks
Grothouse also manufactures wood countertops with integral sinks. Integral sinks are created when the sink is partially carved into the countertop surface. They are custom-designed to the clients’ specifications. The integral sink pictured was designed with a wall mount faucet. The counter was sloped for the water to drain into a rectangular sink drain at the base. This counter was finished with Durata® Satin Finish to ensure a waterproof seal. Durata® is also available in Matte for a more organic appearance.
