Kokomo Grills Quality
Kokomo Grills was established with goals of designing and constructing the best BBQ Islands in the industry. Through smart design, superior construction techniques, and quality control. We are proud to say we have achieved this goal!
The most important aspect of framing is a thorough knowledge of structural design and engineering. Large spans are becoming more prevalent in our industry, our competitors build BBQ Islands on two-foot centers. At Kokomo Grills, we build on a maximum requirement of one-foot centers using 20-gauge steel. This is what prevents our BBQ Islands from twisting and cracking.
- Island Wall Construction
The wall’s of our islands are constructed with a cement board made by “Hardie Backer”. This material is strong and also impermeable to water. Hardie Backer is mold proof, fire proof, and water proof.
After application of the Hardie Backer, the island is then taped with fibermesh. We also apply coats of “dryvit brand” flexes with our climate of hot and cold, essentially guaranteeing that your island will not crack or peal. While this quality may go unnoticed on a showroom floor, it is something that will keep your island looking great years after your purchase.
- Counter Tops
All of our counter tops are floated; this ensures the counter to be level preventing cracks in the tile. We use only the best porcelain tiles and natural stones including a variety of travertine, marble, and granite.
- Trex Floors
Our islands are supported along the base of framing and raised slightly off the ground, supported by a waterproof trex composite decking that carries a 25-year manufacturers warranty. Our unique system design offers several benefits to our customers.
1) Your island is supported consistently throughout it’s “entire” frame, not just the corners.
2) Slightly raising your island will hide under your imperfections in the foundation.
3) You are able to easily hose our under your island, preventing moss and dirt build up around the edges of your island.
