Finish Options

At Starke Millwork Inc. we finish all of our products in house. We would be happy to provide you with actual samples finished on your choice of wood specie – just let us know what you are looking for. For exterior stained units, we apply the stain and then 3 coats of a catalyzed polyurethane. Our interior stained units receive the stain and 3 coats of catalyzed lacquer. For interior and exterior paint-primed applications, we can provide your products with a white primer or we could prime and paint in the color of your choice.

We also mix stains in house if you need to match an existing color. We would need a control sample from you as pictures don't represent the true color.

The stain colors below reflect a typical color tone, and may differ slightly due to variations in color, grain and texture of any wood specie. Some variation in color tone is unavoidable and an exact match of the sample finishes is not guaranteed. These Finishes are available for all lumber products.

Our standard sheen is a Satin 35 but we can do higher or lower depending on your needs. Please inform us if you would prefer a different option.

The below images are a first step in choosing your finish color. Due to the variation from monitor to monitor or device to device, we strongly suggest that you request actual finished wood samples to get a more realistic idea of what you will be receiving. Please let us know which ones you like and we will ship them to you free of charge. You can also pass by our Showroom to pick them up if you're in the area.

Disclaimer

Wood, like all natural materials, has inherent dispairites in color and grain pattern. Because of variations caused by nature, over which Starke Millwork Inc. has no control, Starke Millwork Inc. does its best to match the finish samples and grain examples provided. Starke Millwork Inc. does not guarantee an exact match to the sample provided due to the natural variation of the wood. Samples of grain pattern and color are matched to the best of our ability. Due to the natural variation in wood, each piece will have a variation in how it accepts the finishing process. 

Finish is applied to the wood surfaces as a protective coat. Variations will occur in color, character, tone and grain from product to product. Slight variations between samples and finished goods should be anticipated. These variations will not be accepted by Starke Millwork Inc. as a reason to reject an order in part or in full.

The above images are a first step in choosing your finish color. Due to the variation from monitor to monitor or device to device, we strongly suggest that you request actual finished wood samples to get a more realistic idea of what you will be receiving. We will ship them to you free of charge.
