Protection and longevity

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.
