Finish Carpentry

Finish carpentry includes all the cosmetic details of a remodel, such as moulding, built-ins, siding, rafter tails and railings. While it’s the most visible part of a renovation, finish carpentry is often overlooked.

For example, to maintain the continuity of your house’s architectural features, it’s important to use period dimensional lumber. Instead of using cheap new-construction materials, we’ll seek out reclaimed lumber from salvage, such as flat-grain fir, vertical-grain fir, quarter-sawn oak, white or red oak and mahogany. To match your vintage trim, we’ll manufacture custom moulding. We’ll hand-cut new rafter tails and corbels that will look like they’re original. And we’ll craft custom built-ins, newels and balusters that complement your trim and woodwork.

We work harder to make every project truly special by emphasizing period-accurate trim carpentry. Drawing on our depth of experience renovating vintage homes, we are able to blend old and new with tasteful design, expert craftsmanship and superior attention to detail.
