The Difference Is In The M’s
Men* & Methods, Materials & Machines
*Men is meant to include everyone at AFC! Including the women that work here! When I say men, guys ….I am including everyone at A Fresh Color, if you are offended by that – we are not going to be a good fit to work together – With that being said.
Here is what sets us apart
The team that will work on your house will have no less than 7-10 years of combined experience, every member of AFC is an employee, part of the family, with each one counting on the next to complete their task in order to achieve the end result.
Each team member has gone through extensive training, from material selection, application, prep and protection. The methods used have been tried and tested, by not just us but countless finishers, and refinishers throughout. We have spent years fine tuning our process in order to provide the quality of work that we put out. It starts with the attitude that Good Enough – Never Is at A Fresh Color!
Ask anyone at A Fresh Color and they will tell you don’t fall in love with the product because it could change at any moment. At A Fresh Color we are always striving to be better than our last job, with technology in the coatings market fastly changing AFC strives to stay on top of coating lines. When Finishing in Kitchens AFC will only use coatings certified by the KCMA (Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturer Association).
A Fresh Color uses both solvent and waterborne coatings depending on the ventilation capabilities on site, and type of application, substrate that is being finished or refinished.
AirMix/Air Assisted Airless
Always the favorite topic because we only know of 1 other company in the area that uses the same type of Sprayers we use. A Fresh Color & Design uses Airmix technology or Air Assisted Airless pneumatic pumps both onsite and in our facility. When you look at cabinet, furniture companies finishing process none of them are using machines that are bought at your big box stores, or paint store on every corner, they are using AAA pumps, in order to provide the most consistent spray finish available. AFC has 4 of the AAA pumps in use at this time.
InfraRed Curing Lamps
Winter of 2020 saw A Fresh Color build out a 16×20 drying room outfitted with 18 infra-red curing lamps, allowing us to again provide as close to a factory finish as possible with the ability to cure a cabinet door in 3-17 minutes depending on the coating used.
