Consider These Finishing Factors:
Pre-Finished Materials: Pre-finished products offer consistent quality and quick installation, although not without a few tradeoffs. Here's why:
Controlled Environment: DPI Quality Custom Finishes doesn't have to contend with the effects of other building trades working nearby. Dust, traffic, temperature and humidity are out of the picture.
The Right Tools: DPI Quality Custom Finishes works with low-pressure, high-volume spray guns and spray booths, so uniformly good appearance from piece to piece comes much more easily. Maintaining consistency across a whole installation is another matter -- when cutting and mitering expose fresh wood, a factory finish is difficult to match, and touch-ups are tricky if there's damage on a busy jobsite. DPI Quality Custom Finishes offers touch-up stain and finish that was used on your project while it was pre-finished in our shop. DPI Quality Custom Finishes also offers onsite finish repairs and touch-ups.
Budget: DPI Quality Custom Finishes offers pre-finishing from $.45 to $2.00 per linear foot. This is in addition to your raw millwork costs. However, there are several ways to look at the "real cost" question. Prefinished materials finished in our shop will help builders save time and labor during installation. Finishing decorative millwork and doors can take three days or more onsite. You'll need a crew of finishers and extensive site preparation to finish millwork and doors onsite. Other work that could jeopardize the quality of the finish will have to stop, adding time to the construction schedule. As we all know time is money, with our prefinish we can save both.
With pre-finished products, site preparation is simpler, and other trades can continue to work. A lone carpenter or painter can complete touch-up in a day or two.
