“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!”
Tiffany Welch

“Lance recently completed refinishing my front door and I couldn't be more pleased! Lance is a true artisan and craftsman, a master at what he does. Refinishing wood has been in his family for four generations. He loves what he does and it certainly shows in his work. He turned my front door into a fine piece of "furniture". It is a perfect introduction to my home.

I couldn't be more pleased with the work Lance does, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone with confidence and the highest praise.”
Gaye Reck

“Lance worked meticulously to refinish and restore our beautiful mahogany front doors. His work is outstanding! Lance focuses on every detail and helped us pick out the perfect stain color and was able to match it to our window trim, even tho that trim was a different wood. Lance is extremely trustworthy and reliable. It is definitely worth the wait to get Front Door Refinishing to do the work on your home. I highly recommend his work!”
Colleen O'Keefe

“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.”
Tim Rose

“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.”
Julie Estvander

“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!”
Rita Brown

“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!”
Rainer Kuenkel

“As our front door aged, we struggled to keep it looking like it did when it was brand new. Especially after hurricane Mathew, the finish deteriorated rapidly. Various contractors tried to bring it back but it never looked right. My husband said that there must be an answer! He did an internet search and found Lance. We are so glad we did! He is polite, respectful, and most of all talented! He brought our door back to its original condition. We are more than pleased with him and with his work. We recommend him without hesitation. He is worth the money!”
Patricia Savarese

“What a wonderful transformation! Lance took our old, sun faded, damaged door and made it look brand new. He works diligently to get the correct stain for the look you desire. Lance truly is a Master Craftsman who takes great pride in his work and pleasing his clients. If we had another door that needed work, we would definitely use him again. He is the best!”
Bob Wahl

“Mr. Aulffo's work on our front door was amazing, the look changing from weathered to beautiful. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and does what he says he will do when he says he will do it. It was a pleasure to work with him.”
Richard Fitzgerald

“Lance impressed me immediately with his knowledge and family history in wood restoration. The front doors were antiques imported from France, very old. Daily exposure to intense sun and salt air had destroyed their beauty. It would be an extensive, intricate, time consuming restoration and Lance proved to be the right person for the job. He stripped, sanded and repaired each door, which took many days. His attention to detail was remarkable. When it was time to apply the varnish, he was able to match the exterior door color to the undamaged interior color perfectly. Lance exceeded my expectations and the doors are beautiful. I would highly recommend Lance. In fact, he will be coming back annually to maintain our doors.”

“I was embarrassed to open my front door to guests. The daily beating of the sun had destroyed the finish. The mahogany door has been restored to all its luster. Lance did a great job every step of the way. I highly recommend him.”
Kathleen Erb

“Lance Aufllo is a very experienced refinisher specializing in wood front door entrances. As evidence of his success, he has a large backlog but the wait for him is well worth it. I have had our entrance done before by painting companies but the results were poor with wrong coatings used and less commitment to detail. Lance completely restored our entrance to the bare mahogany wood and applied stain and lacquer coats with in between sanding up until the final coat. It now looks as good or better than when our house was new. Highly recommend.”
