On Painting: We believe in the philosophy that paint, like many things, is an investment: the primary defense of your most prized possessions, it pays to spend a little more up front to buy years of perfection. We understand the value of thorough and meticulous prep-work, and only use the finest quality paints in our work to maximize coverage, durability, and longevity. 

On Staining: Wood stains can provide unparalleled beauty to a surface, but when done carelessly can mask everything natural wood has to offer. We specialize in a multi-step staining process tailored to wood species and project specifics, creating remarkable iridescence, uniformity, and depth.
