Hello! My name is Lance Daniel Aulffo. I am a 4th generation Master refinisher specializing in furniture grade Grand entryway refinishing and antique door restoration. My great-grandfather started finishing and refinishing wood in 1907 Chieti, Italy. I am Hilton Head & Bluffton area's only craftsman solely dedicated to furniture grade front door refinishing. In 1987, I started refinishing doors with my family after school in our shop. In the summers, I spent my time on job sites working in our family business. I have developed a unique 17-phase, non-abrasive, multi-step procedure that is an unmatched furniture grade quality finish with unparalleled beauty and longevity. My process works well with any wood species, door style, size, veneer or solid wood.
“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.”

“Lance does wonderful work! He restored our old and tired looking mahogany door into looking like new again! He is very professional, keeps to his timing, and helped us in choosing the color stain to best match what we were looking for. He is worth the wait if you want a beautiful, quality finish! I would highly recommend!”
“This is a high quality operation. Lance gave us a quote and we scheduled out the work. They arrived on time. Kept us informed throughout the process. We had four doors stripped and refinished. They went thru a multi step professional wood restoration process. We were thoroughly pleased with the results. Our doors never looked so good.”
“Lance took meticulous care of our double mahogany front doors. They truly look better than when they were new. Please do yourself a favor and hire this man for your refinishing job. You will not be sorry.”
“Front Door Refinishing has maintained our front door and outside kitchen area for 4 years. We waited too long initially, and had to do a complete refinish the first visit. Now, with an annual checkup we only need a maintenance coat applied- as needed. You can trust them to be honest and efficient in meeting your "front door" needs. We will not be going anywhere else!”
“We are very happy with the whole process from first contact to the final result with Lance and his crew!
Lance showed up when he said he would and followed through with all issues!
It was quite easy to deal and communicate with him and his work simply outstanding! Maybe not the cheapest but worth every penny! We can and will recommend Lance gladly to everyone having a door to be redone!”
I use my many years of experience to tone, shade and even add faux wood grain to uniform entryways as much as possible.
