Starting The Process
Millwork creates the unique accents on a project. Having custom millwork means the project will be like no other. That unique flare is important. Hundreds of options are available to choose from in the J. Gibson McIlvain millwork catalog.
Ordering custom millwork is like no other process in the lumber industry. Perusing the catalog and calling in an order does not cover the many questions that need to be answered in order to get the job done correctly. Amidst expansive lists and choices there may not be an option that meets the design imagined.
No Detail Left Behind
At J. Gibson McIlvain, they will not only make your custom millwork but make custom tools to do so. Their grinders are equipped to manufacture special straight steel or carbide knives to complete the job properly. The millwork specialists at J. Gibson McIlvain will speak directly with architects and project managers to ensure the specifications for each job are flawless. From modern style to historic restoration these experts take pride in their work. They strive to meet even the most demanding details in a timely manner to keep the project in question running smoothly.
Just The Right Fit
Every project needs a different type of wood. Millwork is no different; in fact, this wood must be of the highest quality while still meeting exact specifications. The moulding profile and application must mesh with the hardwood chosen. Exterior millwork will have a clear group of wood to choose from because of the elements it will endure; interior millwork, on the other hand, has a wider variety to work with. Grain, texture and finish all play into the selection of the hardwood for a millwork project.
The knowledgeable staff at J. Gibson McIlvain are able to make recommendations and clearly explain these options. They will also explain the benefit of McIlvain offering hardwood plywood to match the millwork. The customer can use them as a resource to choose the proper species, lay out and moulding profiles for the desired application.
After the wood has been chosen, the personal attention to detail does not end. Throughout the milling process, the blades used to cut the wood are re-sharpened to maintain consistency. The accuracy, quality and consistency are checked before the project begins and after it is completed to make sure there are no flaws.
The last step of the process is to finish the wood. J. Gibson McIlvain offers oil-based and water-based priming and storage options for the completed custom millwork. An order for architectural millwork, or any lumber need, from J. Gibson McIlvain is sure to meet any customer’s highest expectations. J. Gibson McIlvain will always provide quality wood, wide selections, customized service and expert staff that together delivers a product beyond comparison.
