Testimonials

Brad removed drawers and doors from my kitchen cabinets and took them off site to strip, stain and lacquer.Prior to choosing the color of stain, I asked Brad to show me several samples using 2 different stains I had chosen on some extra kitchen doors I had. This was very helpful.

The cabinet doors were stained on both sides, along with drawer faces, back edge and frames face out. The cabinet frames were also stripped, stained and lacquered. Brad was extremely careful in preparing the kitchen area by protecting the floor, counter tops and appliances by using drop clothes. During the lacquer process he made sure the area was well ventilated by sealing the kitchen area with plastic and having the right ventilation in place.

Brad also painted my kitchen walls to compliment the staining/lacquering that was done on the cabinet frames, doors and drawers.

Brad’s first visit was to look at my kitchen cabinets to determine the best game plan in providing me a darker stain and lacquer than previous lighter stain on doors, drawers, and cabinet frames. Brad was very professional and always was on time. He was very detailed oriented and the finished doors, drawers and cabinet frames far exceeded my expectations. In fact, my neighbor happened to be over visiting and she commented the cabinets look new. This was the best compliment I could have received concerning these cabinets.
I would recommend Brad to anyone that is in the market for cabinet stripping, staining and lacquering.

We needed our 20 year old cabinets refinished as part of a kitchen remodel. Brad worked on refinishing our cabinets over several weeks and our cabinets now look better than new! The process required sanding, staining and sealing the cabinets. We also had some new cabinet doors and some older doors so he had to ensure that the stain matched on both of them. The cabinet doors were done offsite while the cabinet boxes were done on site. Throughout the process he was very punctual, professional and helpful. We would highly recommend him!

We selected Brad to refinish our kitchen cabinets based on his excellent reviews on Angies list. Brad gave us a detailed quote and explained the entire process at the beginning. He also gave us an estimated start date, and we were very impressed because he started the work at the estimated time. He made several samples of stain colors and stained some of our cabinet doors so we could pick the color we wanted. This included making several samples and several visits to our home to make sure we were happy with the color.
After we decided on the stain color, he picked up all the doors and drawers and took them to his shop for staining. He arrived at 7:30 the next morning to begin work on the cabinet boxes which had to be done on site. This included tenting off the kitchen, taping and covering areas that were not being stained, and covering all appliances and counters before he started work. The sanding, staining and applying lacquer was an intensive process that took several days. He was very meticulous in ensuring that all areas were properly completed. After the cabinet boxes were done, he worked on staining the doors offsite and after about 2 weeks, he installed our cabinet doors. He also drilled the holes for cabinet pulls we provided and installed them.. Our kitchen looks beautiful and we could not have found a better finisher to refinish our cabinets. Our cabinets look better than they did when they were new. We highly recommend Brad for cabinet refinishing!

Brad Boehm responded to my phone call promptly. He was on time and I told him what I needed done and he took measurements and prepared a bid within two days. I had received estimates from two other companies.
I chose Brad for the job because he was personable and eager to get the job done to my satisfaction. The overall job preformed exceeded my expectations. The work was completed within three weeks. The work in the kitchen included stripping 33 oak cabinet doors and 15 drawers and refinishing them. I also had the cabinets in two bathrooms stripped and repainted.

The first week the bathroom cabinets and drawers were all removed and taken offsite. This included 4 cabinet doors and 6 drawers.The facing was stripped on one day and painted the next. Brad was finishing up another job which is why he started the kitchen cabinets the second week. All kitchen doors and drawers were removed the second week and striped and stained offsite. The kitchen was sealed off and the stripping was started. Removing the varnish took a bit longer than norm because it had been put on thicker when the house was built. The whole process took about two weeks. Customer service provided was excellent. I felt comfortable leaving town for a week while he was working. The work was completed on time. He cleaned up before leaving and was professional and polite. I love the overall look of my kitchen now.

Member Comments: Brad from The Finishers visited our home to give us a quote for work we thought needed to be done. This is exactly why this review is rated highly. We had a couple of items in the cabinetry genre that needed attention. We informed him of our thoughts that we may put our home on the market and that we didn’t want to go overboard on repairs and refinishes. After we showed him item 1, he indicated a particular repair process that we could cheaply and sufficiently perform on our own! (He even told us the method, the names of the product and where to go to buy and get further guidance.) Item number two was a huge money making opportunity for him. Refinishing a good amount of cabinetry. However, he assured us that it wasn’t in horrible shape, and again gave us details as to how to fix our wood products.
Item number 3 was wallpaper removal, wall painting and trim/door painting. He informed us that he is no longer in that business.

So, in reality, we did not contract him for anything or pay him for anything. But he DID provide service to us. This is why I checked the yes box regarding services performed. We have not contracted him to perform any work, because he convinced us it wasn’t necessary. Whaaaaat?

Brad was truly professional and gracious. I immediately forgot the name of the products after he left and called him on the phone. He answered the question again for me. Then…two days later, he followed up with an email to see if we had tried the repairs, yet. What wonderful customer service.
When I need something done in the cabinetry or wood furniture refinishing areas, I am calling Brad at The Finishers!!! I think you’d be pleased with the high level of customer service that Brad supplies.

I called Brad on Wed. morning, he was here before noon to look at the work and e-mailed an estimate to me that afternoon. We accepted his estimate and because we had said we wanted the work done as soon as possible, they were able to start the next morning. They completed the work in two and a half days. I would definitely use this company again because of the care they took to do a good job, the extra time Brad took to counsel me while I agonized over paint colors, their attention to detail and overall professionalism.

Brad and his crew showed up at 7:00 AM on a Tuesday and started prep work. They finished the job on Saturday at noon. Impeccable work. These guys know what they are doing!

Brad came over and took measurements to produce an estimate. We discussed what I wanted and he sent me an estimate in a couple of days. I notified Brad that I would like to use their services and we setup a date for them to begin. Mike and Richard showed up with Brad on the date and time agreed upon. They were very polite and native English speakers. I got out of the way and they set to work. It took a total of 2 days and a very short visit the third day. They did a superb job. The paint looks great and there are no flaws that I’ve been able to detect. The drywall repair is such that you cannot tell there were large holes in the walls previously. I believe it was Mike who did the texturing. It matches the rest of the walls better than I’d hoped. I checked thoroughly and there are no spots on the carpet or floor, no issues at all. Mike and Richard were accommodating enough that when I had a meeting come up unexpectedly, they were able to reach a stopping point and come back for the last little bit the third day. That really helped me out. I highly recommend using The Finishers for very high quality paint work!

We were on a very tight time line moving into our home so Brad came out within a day of calling him to give us an estimate and his follow up was beyond expectations before hiring him. He responded very quickly via phone and email. I did a lot of research on painters before I chose Brad at The Finishers and not only did he exceed my expectations he beat the competitors on price as well. We didn’t even have to ask for any touch ups, but he said he would come back if we needed anything redone. Brad and his co-workers showed up 5 minutes early both times they came out – they had to split it up into two days because we did 2 coats of painting and they had to start later in the day on the first day – so he came out at 7:00am and the 2nd day was on time and finished within his time frame he gave us. He also picked up all the paint, helped us with trim colors, ect. There were no hidden costs, what he quoted us is what we paid (including all supplies and paint) I don’t hesitate at all recommending The Finishers (Brad) to anyone – you won’t be disappointed.
