Fehrenbacher Cabinets, Inc. does not limit their customers to a few standard stain colors. We custom mix all of our own stains within our facility. Select from one of our numerous stain samples or we can custom tint our stains to meet your personal preference. All of FCI’s, stains are hand wiped finishes, ensuring a consistent, beautiful finish, time and time again.
FCI’s, specialty glazed finishes have become very popular. Applying a glaze to any finish adds a great amount of depth to the over-all look of the finish. A glaze is great for highlighting detail within your doors, drawer fronts, cabinets, moldings, wood carvings, and appliqués. We have several standard glazes to choose from as well as having the ability to mix glazes to satisfy your taste. Glazes can be applied to natural, stained, and painted finishes.
Many of FCI’s specialty finishes incorporate physical distressing to give them an aged look. We use a variety of different and unique techniques to give these finishes a very appealing look and feel. All of these distressing marks also become a great place for glaze to hang to help accent these areas. Rub through finishes have also become very popular. This technique uses an abrasive to “burn thru” the base color of the finish to give the cabinetry a worn look on obvious high wear areas. Any of our distressed and rub-through finishes can be customized to your likings.
FCI’s painted finishes are extremely durable. FCI uses catalyzed enamel paints which are sprayed on, oven-cured, and hand sanded between coats to ensure a beautiful finish. FCI has 5 standard paint colors and can have any color matched per a customer’s request. FCI also has a textured “matte” finish available on painted cabinetry. This increases the durability of the finish. The textured finish is very popular in a commercial application such as dentist and doctor’s offices.
