About Us

Family business with family values

West Side Finishing Ltd. is a family business with family values. We value each other, we value our clients, and we value our work. There is a tremendous amount of pride in everything we do, and it shows. Whether we are customizing a cabinet package for a home builder, contractor, or for individuals, you can always tell what sets a West Side Finishing project apart.

It starts with our processes, which we’ve spent many years refining. Each team member is cross trained to ensure production remains consistent at all times. Hands-on training and mentorship are at the core of building our strong team. Safety is always top of mind in our shop and during installs. We are proud of our impeccable tool care and our safety record. Communication also is key among our team and with our clients. Every aspect of the job is fully understood before production can begin. Technology plays a valuable role in our company. Although each cabinet is hand-finished to ensure top craftsmanship, we leverage industry-leading software to provide 3D customer renderings, CNC solutions, and detailed shop drawings. We hold ourselves and our team accountable and operate to the highest standards so that you, our valued customers, can receive all the benefits custom cabinetry brings to your home or workplace. You will enjoy working with us as much as you will love your new cabinetry.

Collaboration

In addition to working closely as a team and with our clients, we work with the other trades on your project to ensure the best overall result. From discussing lighting requirements with electricians to line locations with plumbers – this level of collaboration prevents mistakes, mis-measurements, and unnecessary delays.

On Budget

Your budget is respected. You’ll always get the best quality and craftsmanship, whether your budget is for your wildest dream renovation or to simply add more function to a kitchen or bathroom. We will complete your project on schedule and on budget – every time.

Quality

Our processes, integrity, skill, technology, and years of experience all work together to provide you with the end result you need – functional, stylish, cabinetry that adds value to your life and to your home. We are satisfied with the job only when you are ecstatic with the results.

Consult with us today for your custom cabinet needs and experience what set West Side Finishing apart.
