However, ordering millwork is more complicated than looking through a catalog and placing an order over the phone. Even a large collection like ours may not always include the exact type which you require for a job. It’s possible that your project will need our grinders creating a custom straight steel or carbide knife just for you. Direct collaboration between your architects or project manager and our millwork specialists can ensure that every element contributes to the overall aesthetic, whether you want current design or historic restoration. Our experienced millwork professionals take satisfaction in meeting even the most stringent specifications and completing each project on time.
The timber you choose, as well as the moulding profile and application, are perhaps the most important aspects of your purchase. There are clear top alternatives for outside applications, because some timbers are more resistant to the elements. Texture and grain qualities are other important considerations when choosing wood for millwork. Another crucial consideration is the finish. We have a knowledgeable team who can give recommendations and explain any alternatives to you. They collaborate with you, the customer, to select the best wood species, lay-up, and moulding profiles for your project.
Architectural millwork, unlike some bulk timber, must be constructed of the best grade wood that also reaches the lengths required for long moulding runs. To avoid rip out, we ensure that the grain is consistent and that the machining is of high quality. We take extra precautions to keep our machines in good working order and our blades as sharp as possible. In fact, we regularly resharpen our blades during the milling process to ensure uniform size and a clean finish. We inspect our work for correctness, quality, and consistency both during and after the run, ensuring that you are satisfied with the final product.
