Enhance Your Build With Custom Millwork

Categories: Millwork

Custom millwork can add timeless beauty and elegance to any build. Whether decorative or functional, any room or exterior can benefit from the warmth, character and hand-crafted details that custom millwork lends to a project. If you’re not familiar with millwork, the term refers to items traditionally made in a wood shop. Base trim, moldings, interior doors, door frames, window casings, chair rails, and wood panels are all examples of millwork. Whether you are a contractor or a homeowner, adding a unique piece to your home can add a finishing touch that off-the-shelf products just can’t achieve. 

What can I get crafted?

There is almost no limit to what custom millwork can achieve. At CCL we’ve created everything from columns, mantels, faux beams and interior molding to door and window casings, stair parts and so much more. Common work includes recreating old handrails and balustrades to casing replications and custom door and window trim surrounds.

Why choose custom millwork for your build?

From a practical point of view, it allows homeowners to make the most of the space they have available. Sometimes off-the-shelf products just won’t allow you to create the living space of your dreams, turn an awkward corner of your home into something useful, or create elegant molding that gives your bedrooms old-world charm.

These small details can have huge benefits to the home you live in or the project you are building. Firstly, homeowners get the joy of living in a home that truly meets their needs. As not everyone has the budget to build a new home from scratch, custom-built pieces allow homeowners to individualize their homes on a more affordable scale. 

Secondly, custom millwork adds resale value to any project, making it well worth the time and money invested. Working with a millwork specialist means your project will be in safe hands. At CCL, our talented team has decades of experience bringing unique one-off projects to life. Whether the home you are working on is a new build or you are looking to add historical elements to your build, we can provide unique solutions to any type of project.  

When should I use custom millwork in my project?

There are very few occasions where custom designs can’t be incorporated into a home project. Whether you need to repair a custom piece in your home that can’t be bought off the shelf, want to recreate an old piece of woodwork or have a client who requires work that you don’t have the tools for, CCL’s Custom Millwork Shop has the talent to take your plans and turn them into a reality. 

We work with contractors as an extension of their workforce. We can work alongside you to bring the custom made parts of a project to life. Custom millwork is a great way to offer value to your clients and go above and beyond their expectations.

How do I start the process?

Although it’s not always possible to recreate an item from just a Pinterest picture, a little bit of planning goes a long way. Having architectural drawings or existing pieces of millwork is a great starting point for any project. If you don’t have any existing plans or designs to work from, knowing what type of lumber your project requires can help. If your project requires a wood type that doesn’t age well or wears badly in the weather where you live, you may need to reconsider if the project is right for your home. 

For fans of craftsmanship, quality, and individuality, custom millwork can help create a space that is unique to you or your client. Contact CCL today to find out how we can bring your custom built vision to life.
