IPIK doors start out with "pretty faces" but it takes experienced wood people to know how to finish each specie and cut of wood.

Field finishing doors exposes you to the risk of handling and storing hazardous material on your site as well as exposing people on the site to noxious fumes No over-spray, No solvents, no VOC's., no fumes at your jobsite… if you let IPIK factory finish for you.
The ultimate clear, protective finish is available for any job.

Since we build doors that will last a lifetime, we require the most durable materials available to finish them.
Our crystal clear CRYSTAL-THANE finish protects the wood and shows off the natural beauty of the wood. 

At Ipik, we make our own stains. This gives us maximum color control for matching an architect's sample. The stain formulas are archived so that we can handle future job needs.
