When we insist on factory finishing our products, we are safeguarding your investment in handcrafted fenestration. It’s all about protection and longevity.
A factory finish provides the opportunity to fully seal and protect all those surfaces and cavities a site painter cannot reach, like glazing cavities, hardware machining, and behind the hinges, as with many doors and casement windows.
Whether you require a paint, stain or patina finish, we are able to create almost any color match or custom request. We have a vast array of standard finishes, but we are also able to match or contrast to your architectural elements of choice. As you design beyond boundaries, you’re not in a color box with us.
Paint. We use a 3-part water-borne European finish comprising an impregnator, a sealer and a top coat. You can choose from a standard paint or a color match to your favorite paint brand and color. Split finishing is also available, whether with different colors in and out, or with a paint-stain split. Kynar Aquatec paint finishing is available as well which consists of two coats of Aquatec and doesn’t require a primer coat.

Stain. We use a European three-part water-borne stain system. Much like our paint, we have standard finishes, but we usually create a custom finish to match interior millwork, flooring or cabinetry. Split finishing is also available with stains, whether with different colors in and out, or with a paint-stain split.
Dynamic Stain Finishes
For steel and aluminum fenestration and for aluminum cladding, we use a Kynar finish. You can choose a standard paint or a color match to your specific needs. Textured and metallic paints are also available.
Metal Arte Paint Finishes
For bronze windows, our living patina finishes are hand-applied. The standard range is Light, Medium or Dark, and we are happy to explain the variation in price for these finishes. With our Artisan Patina crew, we are able to create a custom, unique patina finish for whatever you or your client require.

Custom architectural fenestration shouldn’t come with limited finish options. Successfully integrating fenestration into your design intent demands more.
As you integrate fenestration into your design intent, we want you to be fully aware of your options in paints, stains, and patinas. Whatever the choices, we’re here to guide you.
