Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, if you prefer the woodwork to be with a natural look, we will finish it with one coat of stain and 2 coats for varnish. We can and also do more coats as per your request. You can choose the color finish from a color swatch.

While our typical materials are pine, and MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) we use many other wood species such as oak, poplar, maple, walnut, cherry, and more. For exterior Trimwork applications we use Vinyl and Resin materials that will not be affected by the elements.

Yes, we are a convenient one stop shop for moldings, that is: furnish, install and paint. We count with a dedicated painting division that specializes in molding and drywall painting, and wood staining. Our services also include drywall repair and complete interior painting of walls and ceilings.

To make the woodwork or moldings stand out, typically we paint them with semi gloss or high gloss. Since most homes already have some moldings, we would match the existing painting color, (usually white or off white). We would gladly let you choose the paint color, and you can provide the paint as well.

At the same time, the molding the paint used can be latex or oil based paint.

If you are too sensitive to the smell of fresh paint, or have little children in the house that can be affected to the smell, we can use a odorless type of paint at your request.

For walls and ceilings we paint with flat, eggshell, or satin paint.
