Not much is outside our scope when it comes to interior finishes. Our trim work is admired by many, replicated by few. From standard cut and roll to venetian plaster, gold leaf and faux silk paneling, our repertoire spans it all.
We are experts at salvaging and restoring original architectural elements by employing a variety of different products, tools and techniques. From historical estates to neighborhood homes, we build relationships and maintain homes for life.
Why replace when you can restore? Our turnkey kitchen restoration service provides clients with a like-new kitchen in weeks, at the fraction of the cost of a major gut rehab. Stop by our showroom to see before and after displays of what’s possible!
We provide custom finishing services to numerous cabinet and furniture makers, carpenters and home builders. Our product knowledge, experience and facility make us the perfect partner for small shops who service the most particular of clientele.
Breathing new life into well-loved furniture is one of our most favorite things to do. Whether you already have a vision, or need assistance in creating one, our team can help you turn what some might call trash into a beautiful statement piece.
GARAGE & ENTRY DOOR REFINISHING
Our superb problem solving abilities position us as the most reputable provider of exterior door finishes on the north shore. We finish new custom doors in our shop, and provide on-site refinishing and maintenance to keep doors looking their best!
It is such a pleasure to look up (and at the garage doors!) and see such a beautiful job. You really do “fine painting and decorating” as advertised in your brochure. I might use another word – artistry.
Our addition is complete and it is beautiful! Thank you to you and your entire crew for the great work you did in our home. I can’t say enough for your crew and the work they did, you should be very proud of them.
