At Boiseries CAN-AIR Woodworks Inc we have a dedicated team to handle all your custom stain matching needs.
One of the most common reasons for staining wood, whether it be a piece of moulding, woodwork, stair components, hardwood air vents, or trim, is to make it match an existing colour in that room.
We will match it with remarkable accuracy!
We take the time to perfectly match your colour based on the species of wood. Equally important is to take into account the grain pattern and cells which form the pores of the wood.
Why is grain and pores important?
Even when two boards are of the same type of wood, we oftentimes discover that the same stain does not produce the same results. The cells which form the pores of an oak board, for instance, vary in their natural colour from red oak, which has a natural pinkish tint, to white oak, which is actually tan. The same is true for the various types of maple, pine and mahogany, just to name a few.
The grain pattern is affected by the way in which the lumber is cut from the log. When the log is first cut into quarters and then cut at a different angle, the resulting boards have large flakes of grain revealed. It often appears to be a totally different species of wood and the difference in grain pattern becomes even more obvious when a stain is applied.
We have a vast array of colour chips from the industry’s leading flooring brands or you can simply provide us a sample and we will do the custom stain matching. Our paint and stain is always applied in ideal conditions in our manufacturing paint shop. Our expertise also lies in the preparation and sanding techniques; resulting in high client satisfaction and quality products.
