We use the best equipment and chemistry available and our finish is "professional quality".

People tell us that our painted doors feel "really nice" and touching our painted door conveys a sense of high quality. That is because we use a six step painting process without shortcuts.
Our process is as follows:
After the door is made it is first prepared by hand sanding the edges and surfaces on the front and back.
Next we apply a first coat of primer followed by a second hand sanding.
That is followed by a second coat of primer and a third hand sanding.
Finally the door is ready for the final colour which is called the top coat.
We use a post-catalyzed industrial lacquer that cures to a durable and long lasting finish that looks great and is easy to clean. The result is a final product that has a very pleasant silky smooth feel.
We currently offer the following ten colours as standard.

We are sometimes asked if we can paint a solid wood raised panel door. We do not recommend painting solid wood panels. The reason is that wood shrinks and swells slightly with changes in heat and humidity. This happens even under a coat of paint. The door frame is narrow, usually between two and three inches, and the dimensional change is minimal. However a center panel is four to five times wider. Small paint cracks can form over time at the joint where the panel fits into the rails. This is because the panel expands and contracts within the wood frame. Our solution is to use a dimensionally stable MDF center panel surrounded by wood rails. Experience has taught us that this is the best way to construct a five piece door for painting.
