Opaque Finishes

With today's popularity of painted finishes, it is essential to be able to provide a smooth, high quality and color accurate finish. Pigmented conversion varnish meets that standard. After a high solids primer is applied and all surface flaws are repaired, an extremely smooth color coat is meticulously sprayed, providing a more durable and elegant surface than a brushed on finish.

Clear Finishes

We have carefully selected the finest materials from suppliers like Sherwin Williams and General Finishes to use for our clear coat finishes. They are VOC compliant and they surpass the standards for performance as established by the KCMA. You might also consider our highly recommended water bourn finishes.

Wood Coloring Techniques

We offer a full range of stain and coloring options. With over 50 years of collective technical skill, our craftsman are able to match and develop colors to beautifully enhance any species of wood. Coloring techniques include stains, dyes, glazes, bleaching, cerussing, whitewashing and toners.

Water Bourn Finishes

Water bourn finishes have significantly improved in recent years. Advancements in performance and aesthetic appeal now allow water bourn finishes to closely match up to standard solvent finishes. If your project is environmentally driven, be sure to consider these excellent alternatives.
