We had a wonderful experience with Lance’s door refinishing. He took the time to do the job right and didn’t cut any corners. Lance took our entry door down to bare wood for a complete refinish.I worked for the Minwax Company for 26 years so I can appreciate the effort and care it takes to properly restore a wood entry.

I have lived in Colleton River Club for the past 23 years. When my beautiful front doors started fading badly from the sun and salt air, I found Lance Aulffo who restored my doors to look brand new. Many neighbors would drive by and comment how beautiful hey looked. I so enjoyed having Lance taking care of my doors because of his wonderful work ethic and long hours he devoted to iving my doors a wonderful look. I had to leave my doors open on many occasions when I had errands to do and I thoroughly rusted ance with my house and also making sure my pets did not get outside. He did a perfect job and I would hire him again in a heart beat!!!

Lance, Thank you for bringing our beautiful mahogany doors back to their original lustre! We have lived in Wexford Plantation since 2001 in our custom built home and we take great pride in our one of a kind solid mahogany front doors. Several years, a few hurricanes and many layers of built up varnish necessitated that our entry doors be taken down completely. You were one of the few people willing to handle such an extensive refinishing project and did an excellent job. We are very pleased with the quality of your work and your attention to detail. Thank you, again.

Lance Aulffo is an accomplished wood finisher who did a superior job refinishing our front door. I knew the door had faded, but didn't realize how beautiful it could be until Lance had completed the job. He took great care with every step of the process as he is truly proud of his knowledge and expertise. I can highly recommend Lance.
