FINISH DESCRIPTIONS

Woodmont Doors uses finishes that protect and enhance the natural beauty of wood. Extra care is taken to ensure a uniform finish. Because we are dedicated to customer satisfaction, we feel that it is important to explain some of the characteristics of Woodmont Doors finishes and hardwoods. Like fingerprints, characteristic differences in color and grain are produced by nature in every tree. These variations are what created the beauty and interest found in the wood. The variations in color, grain and texture will cause variation in the finish, even though identical finishing processes are applied. These variations are considered a natural characteristic of hardwood and are not a defect. We hope that you will appreciate and enjoy this beauty.
