Wood Finishes Can Bring Out the Natural Beauty of Your Wood
Wood finishes can help change the look of your countertops and bring out their natural beauty. You can choose a color that will look good in your kitchen, and we will be able to create the look you crave.
Help Your Countertops to Last Longer
A finish can do more than just add beauty to your countertop design. At Maryland Wood Countertops, we have wood finishes that will make your tops water or heat-resistant surfaces. The right finish will protect your investment so that you’ll have long-lasting countertops that will also raise the value of your property.
Prepare Food Directly On Your Tops
You can choose a finish that will allow you to safely prepare foods on top of your countertop. If you plan on using your top as a cutting surface, we have a finish that will stop your wood from drying out. A good finish can also help limit knife marks in the future.
Food Grade Mineral Oil and Natural Waxes
This type of finish should be applied to surfaces that will be used for cutting. It is important to note that this finish will have to be reapplied often to make sure that it continues working the way that it needs to. If you have a butcher block top, this is the perfect finish.
A tung oil finish is permanent, and it adds a nice, hand-applied look to your surface. It will also help make your surface water and stain-resistant. However, you shouldn’t use it on any cutting surfaces.
This finish will help protect your tops from chemicals, water and more. This layer of protection will also keep your countertops looking their best.
Resist Using Household Chemicals
Household chemicals and some harsh cleaning products can ruin the surface of a beautifully finished countertop. In most cases, water and soap are perfect cleaning solutions for your top.
