Trends Wood Finishing Testimonials

25 years of finishing and wood-working experience under one roof.

Luis and his team at Trends did an amazing job with our "kitchen refinishing" and they stand by their work. The guys are professional, hard working and kept on schedule as promised. The transformation was remarkable and it is just beautiful! We were more than pleased with how our kitchen turned out. We would definitely recommend Trends for anyone in the market for a kitchen makeover!!

Connie from Burlington, ON

"In designing custom kitchens there are a lot of things which have to be considered which make your work stand out from everyone else’s. One area which makes my kitchens stand out is that with Trends Wood Finishing as a partner I can provide the client with the highest quality finish and I’m not limited to a particular color pallet or style. My job is made easier when I have a major aspect of my product that I’m able to provide my client with the best."

David Tuttle from The King’s Woodwright

"We would like you to know how pleased we are with our kitchen transformation. You and your wonderful staff refinished our old blond oak kitchen cabinet doors and we now have lovely updated dark cherry stained doors. It has completely changed the look of our kitchen and given it a whole new appearance. Not only that, your countertop fabricator provided a wide selection of granite and we are very pleased with that as well. They measured one day and installed the next. It looks amazing. We would highly recommend your company and must commend you and your staff on the exceptional service we received. Your staff were very impressive. They knew what they were doing, they cared about what they were doing and they worked hard to deliver a quality product."

McLachlan from Oakville, ON

"After 7 years in our now 16 year old home, in August of 2012 my wife and I began getting quotes to refinish our kitchen. We considered a complete gut, simple refacing of the cupboards, and a custom mix of both approaches. We had 5 companies quote us over a 2 week period. I met with Trends after researching them online, and dropping by their Oakville location where I initially met Luis’ son and saw their facility and showroom. Luis came to my house several times to verify measurements and design ideas. He walked me through what was possible, and agreed to customize a basic door design to my specifications. We decided to have granite installed, replace a number of cabinets, add a number of totally new cabinets, and had new doors made to suit the kitchen. We also opted for door match panels by the refrigerator and dishwasher, another great idea from Luis. The color of the cabinetry was custom stained to match some hardwood flooring in adjacent rooms in our home. I ended up selecting Trends, though they were neither cheapest nor most expensive, and some other companies offered to price match. Having seen the shop, and met several folks from Trends, I felt they would do a quality job, and offered good value. Luis also offered some excellent ideas for ways to achieve what we wanted, including one that I did not initially agree to, but did come around to. We ended up replacing the cabinet over the microwave, in order to meet code for distance from cooktop to the bottom of the over the range microwave. That did mean moving the microwave vent in the wall, but has come together beautifully in the end. I should have listened to Luis when he first suggested it! Once the manufacturer built the units, David and Luis came on time as promised, and installed the cabinetry all in one day. They were organized, coordinated and professional. Any small issues were completely resolved to my satisfaction, and we are loving our new kitchen. Not only would I absolutely recommend Trends to others, I have already used them again for another project, and am planning a third for the beginning of 2013. Quality, honesty and exceptional service define my experience with Trends in Oakville. Give them a call, you won’t be disappointed!"

Mark M. from Burlington, ON

"From the first time we met Luis, we felt in good hands; honesty, punctual, knowledgeable, customer service focused, well priced.

Day one of the project, Luis and his team were at the door, on time, 8am with floor covering to protect our hardwood. Just short of three weeks later, the project was complete and now we have a wonderful, great looking, functional kitchen.

Attention to detail throughout the renovation by Luis and his skilled craftsmen is appreciated. A small correction was required once the project was complete and within a day the piece of mechanism was repaired.

The hole experience, working with Trends, was stress free and pleasant.

When you're looking to do a kitchen renovation, do not hesitate to contact Luis at Trends Wood Finishing!"

"Luis is a business man with integrity and outstanding craftsmanship. He and his devoted team transformed my kitchen from generic to designer. Luis has excellent carpentry skills and is able to go beyond the average kitchen renovation. Love my coffee cupboard!"

Amanda P.

"We were referred to Trends by a friend and I have to say that we are really happy with the service, advice and end product of our kitchen makeover. Luis was always available via phone, email or in person to answer questions and provide his expert advice. The Trends staff and contractors involved in various aspects of our reno were trustworthy and competent, friendly easy to deal with. Work was completed as per the schedule we originally discussed and we are very happy with the look, feel and functionality of our new kitchen. Highly recommend Trends!"

Adam M.

"This is the 3rd time I have had the pleasure of having Trends do some work for my family. In this case it was for my Mom's condo (built in the 80's). Luis and the team did a great job walking us through the options, priced the work realistically, hit the timeline they committed to, and delivered an excellent experience for my elderly mother. She's over the moon with their work, and I am pleased to offer this review of a great family run, local business."

Mark M.

"working with Trends wood finishing was an absolute pleasure! Luis and his team were very professional and provided the highest quality of service! My kitchen went from dark and drab to bright and beautiful!!! A total transformation. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking to resurface exhisting cabinets."

Barb W.

"We are so amazed with our kitchen transformation. Luis and his team refinished our kitchen cabinet doors to a modern white finish. They completely redesigned a new Island for us and added all the finishing touches including crown moulding, quartz counter tops, and hardware. This has completely changed the look of our kitchen. The entire project was completed so quickly and professionally. The quality of the their work is outstanding. Their knowledge and advice along the way was greatly appreciated. Our kitchen now looks like a custom built, high end kitchen. We would definitely recommend Trends to anyone looking to update their kitchen."

Andrea D.

"my experience was awesome- I had 2 estimates and the first person who was recommended by a friend was only interested in re-doing the whole kitchen. Luis suggested either refinishing or replacing the cupboard doors as they were what I didn't like anymore - golden oak that had turned orange over time. I chose to replace the doors and hardware and repainted the walls and I now LOVE this kitchen. Luis was great and had everything done on time. If I had another kitchen to do I'd hire only him"

Susan F.

"Thank you Luis and your team of professionals for a wonderful kitchen transformation. The team at Trends were always available to answer any questions we had, frequently offering suggestions and support. They were punctual and always left the work space clean and tidy at the end of the day.

It was a pleasure meeting and having Luis and Renato refinish and revitalize our kitchen. A heartfelt thank you."

Heather G.

"Our kitchen is absolutely beautiful!!! Thanks to the assistance and hard work of Luis and his team - Renato was helpful and attentive, as was Matteo. Couldn't have completed this extensive kitchen renovation without them. Luis truly has a passion for his craft. He was as excited and interested as my husband and I were to see this kitchen come together. For me, customer service skills and having my requests listened to, are just as important as the technical skills (building, painting, sourcing materials) required to get the job done. It took a few times to go over what I wanted and some small things needed to be revised. This is expected when going through a process and it was successful! In the end, the collaborative team work is what made our vision come to life. Our only suggestion would be for them to ensure that the subcontractors that they hire ( granite counter supplier) have the same amount of dedication and care that Luis and his team provide. This would make this difference between an excellent experience and a very good one. That would be my only suggestion. Regardless, in the end, my husband and I are very pleased with our 'magazine cover' kitchen and would recommend Luis and his team to anyone looking to refinish their kitchen. Truly beautiful. ( I have referred them twice already!!)"

"My wife and I contacted 4 different firms to quote on doing a Kitchen refacing job for us. Trends Woodfinishing was the only company that quoted a refacing job that accomodated some changes to the cabinetry, and adjustments to fill the gap between the top of the existing cabinet boxes, and the ceiling. Their quote was competative with all others and yet they had more work to do. The time frame quoted was 4-6 weeks from order date, and Trends was on time with their promise. The job was done right, they did the job with attention to detail, and the kitchen looks great. Luis and his staff adapted to a last minute change request and did not complain they got the job done. Trends quoted what they would do, did what they quoted they would, and accomplished the job in the time frame that they said they would. We highly recommend Trends Wood Finsihing for your home renovation project"

Mike M.

"I am a stickler for great customer service and expect value for my hard earned money, I have high expectations.

Luis at Trends Wood Finishing Inc met all of my expectations, I have recommended him to my friends and will continue to do so.

Luis and his staff went the extra mile while designing, building and installing a wall unit that covers one whole end wall of my living room, floor to ceiling, a statement piece.

Everyone who visits me remarks on how beautiful it is.

Luis was excellent about making sure all my wishes were met during the initial process of the build.

His installation team were professional, very pleasant, extremely careful, on time and tidy.

I would recommend them to anyone, in fact they are in process of doing another install in my kitchen."

June R. from Milton

"After recently purchasing our home, we called Trends Wood Finishing in order to fix our our kitchen cabinets as they were in very bad shape. We also decided to change the colour from a dark brown to an white.

As we progressed with the project we added a significant amount of additional work:

  • added some new cabinetry
  • replaced stainless steel fan with a new canopy with a new insert fan
  • changed glass and design of the two main cabinets flanking the new canopy
  • replaced granite
  • replaced island with a new one with our own custom dimensions and a pull out for garbage which I really like.

Throughout the entire project, Luis and company were very open to our needs, as they evolved, and most importantly provided their expertise to ensure any important details were not missed.

We can proudly say that our kitchen is the most beautiful kitchen we have ever owned over the past 17 years.

We highly recommend Trends Wood finishing to all of our friends and family."


"Working with Luis and his team has been a fantastic experience! Luis truly is a craftsman who has an eye for detail as well as a strong sense of customer service. He was completely accessible by email throughout the job to answer questions, schedule work and provide updates. The team involved in the kitchen refinishing and backsplash installation, Leo, Daniel and Alberto, were very professional and personable. My husband and I both work from home and were not inconvenienced in any way by them being here with us. We sourced several quotes and were so impressed with the quality of our choice we would highly recommend Trends to anyone looking to get the most value for their investment in new or updated cabinetry! We look forward to working with them on other projects throughout our house over the next several months."

Megan H.

"The people of Trends wood finishing did a wonderful job on my kitchen. Everything was done in a very professional way, from the measurements to the installation. We truly recommend Luis and his team, they are committed to the best quality, they answer all our questions, and the quality and caliber of their customer service always go beyond any one expectations. Our kitchen looks beautiful, the counter-tops are amazing, and the design and style of the cabinets make us very happy. We were gladly surprised with the timing of the work, they gave us a date and they deliver it on time!"

Martha B.

"We couldn't be more happy with our experience. Our kitchen is rather small, was non-functional, dull and outdated. After inquiring with various companies and being disappointed with outrageous prices, we contacted Trends Wood Finishing Inc. after seeing their sign on Speers Rd. The customer service is outstanding, they made us feel important, understood our concerns, and were able to give us great ideas on how to best utilize a small space on a tight budget. We are so happy with the result, you won't be disappointed."

Charlotte T.

"Luis and his skilled team of craftsmen did a great job, from design to installation.

Timelines were met and issues that came up were dealt with quickly, decisively, and professionally.

Luis takes great pride in his product and his relationship with his customer. I would definitely recommend Trends and would use them again for future projects."

Chris H.

"I contacted Luis some weeks before Christmas, described what I wanted done, and then asked if it could be finished before Christmas. Luis came to my home, did the measuring, outlined what they could do and did commit that the job would be done before the date I requested. The work had to coordinate with other renovation work being done, and everything that we planned, was completed as was promised. The team did a great job and completed to my total satisfaction. "
