Architectural Millwork Finishing
The purpose of any finish is to protect the material that it is applied to. Finish materials are designed to seal, stabilize, and protect wood from weather, sunlight, and moisture absorption. Stains and clear finishes enhance the beauty of the woods used. They highlight the craftsmanship of the custom millwork, augmenting the chosen wood grains and rich tones.
The right finish brings out the best of the hand selected materials. In addition to creating beautiful results, the most important purpose of a high quality finish is to protect the piece.
Exceptional, Thorough Preparation For Finishing
The key to successfully applying the right finish is always thorough preparation of the wood surface. Exceptional preparation ensures the finish will have consistency in color and shading. This is particularly important when using unique, exotic species of wood. The finisher must have experience and knowledge of how a finish will interact with the wood grain.
