The pride we take in our craft shines through with the spray finish on our stair parts.


CUSTOM STAIN MATCHING & OFF THE SHELF STAINS

Yes, we do custom stain finishing to match your hardwood flooring or your kitchen cabinets. We also stain to the Minwax® color pallet. This offers customers 25 wood tone colour choices: ( view the Minwax® color pallet here ). Our experience has been, that MinWax© stain colors are always 1-2 shades lighter then what the can indicates. This is the norm with all MinWax© stains. For example, Ebony MinWax© is not a black stain, it is a mid brown and the type of wood selected will effect the end result. We suggest Consumers do there own testing up front with small stain samples. Sadly, we cannot offer MinWax© samples for approval, because of logistical reasons.

DURASEAL® POLYURETHANE 350 VOC
