Special Finishes

Custom Finishes

Beyond our standard finishes, we can match any finish, fabric swatch, wood trim or paint color specified from your favorite paint company. A finish sample or paint color, sheen level and manufacturer must be provided by the customer. The Finial Company will then provide a strike-off sample to the customer on any wood or steel pole profile as requested. Customer approval of the strike-off sample is required before production will begin.


Polished steel finish

Many, but not all, of our raw steel products can be polished and given a clear topcoat to achieve a finished look. Steel is not uniform in color tone and will vary in shades of gray and silver. Polishing raw steel parts requires considerably more preparation work than our other finishes and therefore incurs additional charges. Steel items that cannot be polished are listed in The Finial Company Retail Price List.




Adding clear topcoat

For an additional charge, we can add a clear topcoat to any finish to achieve your preferred sheen level.



Touchup paint

Touch-up paint can be sent to the customer on request, for an additional charge.

Stains

A wood stain may be specified for any of our wood products. A finish sample or stain color and manufacturer must be provided by the customer. The Finial Company will then provide a strike-off sample to the customer. Customer approval of the strike-off sample is required before production will begin. Wood products are noted in our catalog. Wood naturally absorbs stain. The grain of the wood will absorb stain unevenly across the surface of the item. Finials, rings, brackets, and poles each absorb stain differently, resulting in a set of hardware containing color variation driven by the wood grain of each piece. This variation is part of the inherent beauty of stained wood.

Painting fees

We will repaint hardware from The Finial Company or another manufacturer at the customer's request. We will also paint unfinished hardware from any manufacturer.
