Just the other day, I was waxing on about the regrets people feel about their butcher block counters. In the back of my mind, I’m wondering if anyone’s having a good long-term experience with their wood counters.
So today I get a comment from Bryan with T&B Construction in Howell, Mich., who says this:
As a home remodeler that specializes in bathroom and kitchen remodeling I have installed everything from tile to wood countertops and I agree 100% that the wood finish looks a lot different 6 months from now than it did on the day you installed it.
I can see it maybe lasting 3-5 years, but honestly I have never seen it last more than 6 months. A quick tip however… if you refinish it every 3 months you could keep it going for likely up to 10 years, however it may not be worth the hassle.
I guess I was right!
