All of our units are factory pre-finished
Our state of the art water-based finish is unique in the industry giving us access to unlimited finishing options whether it’s a small or large project. The water-based finish is environmentally friendly and operator friendly, providing the advantage to focus on details otherwise unattended to by the standard industrial assembly line clad manufacturers. Caoba factory pre-finishing offers unlimited choices of textures, colors and coatings using advanced technology and high-performance water-based films that far exceed the beauty and performance of job-site finishing at significant cost savings.
In addition to superior durability against the elements and lasting beauty, water based products are better for the environment and the overall health and safety of our employees.
Our standard opaque finishes are manufactured by Benjamin Moore for both interior and exterior surfaces. In addition, we also offer solid opaque Milesi coatings for ultimate protection and lasting beauty as a premium.
Interior Products: Standard factory finish on interior products is a water-based coating on all surfaces developed by Milesi.
