What to Consider When Hiring an Architectural Millwork Company

Architectural millwork elevates woodwork from a practical solution to a work of art. To ensure your clients receive a unique and beautiful product, you need to choose a company with the right knowledge, skills and licensing. Here are some things to consider when hiring an architectural millwork company:

Client Testimonials

Reading testimonials from previous clients can teach you a lot about a firm's speed, attitude, and quality. Decide on the characteristics you want from a millwork company, or those you want to avoid, and look for evidence of those things in the feedback they receive.

Millwork Process

Interviewing a company about their policies, timelines, warranties and material sources can help you avoid surprises in the middle of a project. This allows you to create a reliable plan for the delivery of interior architectural woodwork and increase your clients’ confidence in your work.

Professional References

Get references to ensure a firm is competent, cooperative and easy to work with. This will help you avoid disputes, delays and meet deadlines. QCP-licensed firms must submit 10 trade references during the licensing process, including 2 from architects and 2 from general contractors.

QCP License

Upholding QCP certification specifications ensures only QCP-licensed architectural millwork companies qualify for your project. A third-party QCP inspector verifies conformance, granting an industry-recognized excellence stamp. Find QCP-licensed firms using our Find a Firm tool or the AWI Member Directory.
