Zinc has a particular Old World charm that makes it a popular choice for high end kitchens. Because it is malleable, it is an ideal material for installing onto countertops, as it installs effectively over wide surfaces. Even though it is soft enough to be formed with hand tools it will stand up to vigorous scrubbing with scotchbrite pads or similar products. To keep its illustrious shine, it can be treated with beeswax or butchers wax to protect it.
If there is any superficial damage to the countertop that either Scotchbrite scrubbing or Beeswax treatment cannot fix, please call Leska for a quick, professional on site repair.
A common concern with zinc is that it could be dangerous to your health: this is nothing to worry about. Zinc is 100% safe and is even found in common nutritional supplements.
Unlike many "long distance" countertop manufacturers, Leska can get you your countertop quickly. Other companies could take as much as a month just to process your order and then you can add shipping time and fees on top of that. Leska is local and we will get you a high end countertop quickly!
Why it's Green
First, we start with zinc! Zinc is an intrinsically green material. All of our zinc is 90 percent recycled making it friendly on the Saveenvironment.
In addition to using zinc, you will also be using a close-to-home company that buys locally, so your money will not go towards shipping like so many zinc companies do. Not only does this save you money, but also time. Our turn around time is usually 5 days. We can also create on spot artistic various finishes.
