Are allen + roth™ wood countertops easy to maintain?
allen + roth™ wood countertops are easy to care for. Tops can be wiped down with warm soap and water and then disinfected with a vinegar based cleaner. Ammonia based cleaners are not recommended.
How does the finish on a allen + roth™ wood countertop compare with others?
allen + roth™ wood countertops are finished with an organic tung oil varnish. This penetrating organic oil dries making our tops waterproof and stain resistant with proper maintenance. Water rings will not form and spills will bead and evaporate.
Other finishes such as linseed oil and wax have to be reapplied often leaving residue and do not resist stains. Film finishes, such as polyurethane and conversion varnish, are not organic and do not penetrate the wood so once they are damaged they subject the top to moisture penetration and must be completely stripped prior to refinishing.
Can a sink be put in an allen + roth™ wood countertop?

Normal use should not cause scratches. Sliding objects on the countertops that have a rough, unfinished surface, such as ceramic pieces with unglazed bottoms, will scratch the finish. Small, "cobweb" scratches can be removed by re-oiling the top. Deeper scratches can be removed when the top is re-oiled by using a fine sandpaper or non-woven abrasive such as scotch brite and then re-oiled (as detailed in care and maintenance instructions).
allen + roth™ countertops will resist all known food based products, such as wine, coffee, tea, juices, jams and jellies, cooking oil, etc. Spills should be wiped up as soon as possible. Food stuff that is dry can be removed with a vinegar solution and a kitchen sponge (the abrasive side can be used with care). Ammonia-based products and bleach should not be used.
allen + roth™ countertops are water-resistant, and if maintained, will not allow water rings to form. While there is no need to avoid water getting on the top, it is recommended that standing water be wiped up as soon as possible.
It is recommended that hot pans should be placed on heat trivets and as an option allen + roth™ does offer heat safe set down rods.
