  1. Hi, my upstand has bowed as I stored it incorrectly. Are there any remedial measures you can advise please? Thanks. Russell

  2. Hi Russell,

    We are sorry to hear that your kitchen upstand has bowed. Unfortuantely, whilst it is still in this state, we would not recommend fitting it.

    If you would like to attempt to rectify the timber, we would recommend laying the upstand on a flat surface, then applying evenly-spaced weights onto the upstand in the opposite direction of the bow to help reform the timber. This process may take a few days, and is not guaranteed to work, but is definitely worth a try.

    If – after a few days – the upstand has straightened out, we would suggest that you then apply a fresh coat of oil to help prevent any further bowing.

    Kind regards,
    Ben @ Worktop Express
