Established in 1994, the Grothouse Lumber Company has grown to become one of the most technically advanced and creative manufactures in the wood surfaces market. Each custom-built top can be configured with a myriad of available options, including 60+ wood species, and 30 edge profiles. Our master craftsman takes pride in creating Made in the USA products and are always modernizing equipment and methods to ensure the highest quality possible. The facility is located on a 50-acre farm where wildlife roams freely and we are mindful of our ecological impact
Grothouse is young and innovative, setting the standard by which others follow. Our relentless pursuit of excellence maintains client confidence in our inventive products that never become dull or dusty. Our pioneering spirit raises the bar for the wood countertop industry, ultimately creating a positive market for the entire trade. Below is a list of our doctrines and industry triumphs.
We quickly established ourselves as the experts in end grain butcher block construction. Due to our extensive engineering and proprietary construction methods, we construct end grain pieces previously unavailable on the market. We can construct end grain pieces 36″ thick, well over 20 feet long and practically any size that can be transported. Our largest piece required a dedicated flatbed tractor-trailer to transport.
Not satisfied with the wood countertop finish commercially available, we created our own proprietary wood countertop finish Durata®. It is FDA approved for food contact, and the most chemically resistant and water resistant wood finish on the market. Durata® is simply the best wood countertop finish and is used in commercial restaurants and bars as well as residential homes.
We developed proprietary methods to seal wood around sinks. For years, sealing wood around sinks baffled wood craftsmen. Grothouse developed methods to completely and safely seal wood countertops with sinks. Grothouse Wood countertops with under mount sinks are covered under our lifetime warranty.
Grothouse is the only wood surfaces manufacturer to offer laboratory custom stain matching services.
