Comments: I was impressed with the professional cusotmer service and very timely responses to all my questions. Pickup and delivery of the 1940 China Cabinet and Buffet was spot on when Armand said it would happen. I was amazed at their ability to restore these 1940 pieces of furniture to look brand new. All damaged areas of wood and wear-and-tear areas were restored like new. No one would know that these pieces are from the 1940s. Because of the quality of the refinish, these pieces have been given a rebirth and look amazing. I'm so impressed with and grateful to Custom Wood Finishing's abilities. I highly recommend them without any reservation.

Comments: Wow. Had a full kitchen cabinet refresh / paint. I had no idea how big of a project this would end up being. This team came in quickly and crushed it. Kitchen looks like a million bucks. Fantastic. Arman was very available. Sometimes the painters were 30-45 min late but over the course of a 2 week project - no big deal. Price was more then excepted but he came in under than other contractors. Would hire again.

Comments: I had an old secretary desk refinished. Arman was great to work with. Communication was prompt and responsive. Pickup and delivery by Julio was on time and perfect. Matched the original finish exactly. I am very happy with the work done and especially how quickly Arman turned it around knowing I was on a strict timeline. Highly recommend . A+

Comments: Our bulldog puppies chewed a designer vintage table to shreds, we were sure it was destroyed. On the OFF CHANCE it could be saved I contacted Arman as I use Home Advisor often. He asked for pictures and then quoted a reasonable repair charge. We delivered the table and 3 days later he said it was ready. We picked it up and couldn't believe our eyes! It was perfect! Better than we could have imagined. Highly recommend Arman & team!

Comments: I contacted Home Advisors seeking a furniture repair person. I was given the names of 3 different companies. I read some of the reviews for this company and I was impressed with the comments referring to Armen, the owner of the company and his professionalism and timeliness. I contacted him and he returned my call the following day. He personally came to my home in Thousand Oaks to examine my large coffee table which my puppy had chewed on. Three of the four legs needed repair. He dispatched two of his employees to pick up the table the next day to take it to his shop for repair. His pricing was fair, and we had the entire table refinished. It now looks like it is showroom perfect. I could not recommend this gentlemen and his assistants more highly.

Review Date: 10/11/2016 | Author: Maria G.

Comments: Arman and his crew are great! They show up when they are supposed and work from the minute they get there until the minute they leave. They kept their promise as to when the project would be complete and they paid attention to detail! I would absolutely hire them again!

Comments: Arman and Julio did a great job on our tables. We were extremely pleased with the end result. Highly recommend them and we will use them again.

Review Date: 06/13/2016 | Author: Richard T.

Comments: Arman is great but he's not always around to "motivate" his crew. We had to tell his men to move a little faster, close the gate for the dog, stay off the phone and to keep things clean. Arman will make things right, we just had to do a little more managing than we wanted.

Review Date: 05/26/2016 | Author: Muriel E.

Comments: did a good job, finished in the time promised,refinished my table and chairs, fair priced and I am pleased

Review Date: 05/21/2016 | Author: Helen C.

Comments: Arman was very responsive to my wishes, did a complete and excellent professional job. Initially I hired his company to finish the kitchen cabinets (refinish with paint/varnish) but then I wound up hiring him to paint the whole interior of the house. He completed the job on time, cleaned up well afterwards and was responsive to items I requested (like painting inside pantry, spraying inside cabinets etc.). All in all I was very happy with the work done and the price.

Review Date: 03/31/2016 | Author: Matt M.

Comments: Arman was cordial, honest, and his team did great work. He even helped work around a rather chaotic schedule at the time, and it was greatly appreciated. Highly Recommended.

Review Date: 03/08/2016 | Author: Linda B.

Comments: We had our wood cabinets stained to a darker color. I was able to pick a custom stain color based on my specific needs in my kitchen. This company is the only one that I found that makes custom stains. The workers were clean and polite and the job was finished in a timely manner.

Review Date: 01/07/2016 | Author: Jim D.

Comments: I hired Custom Wood to paint custom built in cabinets. The contract that built my cabinets did a less than stellar job (at half the price than all the other bids I received - I got what I paid for). Custom Wood came in and spent an entire day covering up errors the cabinet guy made and by the time they were done, the cabinets looked perfect. The owner, Arman, came several times to inspect the work and what a pleasure to work with. He recognized how frustrated I was with the cabinet maker and assured me I would love the cabinets when he was done...and I did. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking or a quality paint job versus looking for the lowest bid. Take it from get what you pay for.

Comments: No issues. Performed well.

Review Date: 11/24/2015 | Author: Buck S.

Comments: Arman was very patient with my wife whom had a hard time making up her mind what refinish she wanted. He demonstrated several samples for her and did not get frustrated with her indecision. He and his company are very professional and do top notch work. You can't go wrong by choosing this company.

Review Date: 11/19/2015 | Author: Gregory P.

Comments: Please do yourself a favor and if you are even looking at another listing look away. You simply cannot get better cabinet painters than these guys. The owner Arman is such a nice person who is honest, and incredibly hard working. I feel fortunate to have found these people through Home Advisor. They will work nights and even weekends to get the job done and do everything to accommodate their client. The job they did at my house is flawless. The time they spent making sure the job was perfect was amazing. He sends a person to make sure the workers are doing quality work daily. Amazing experience, amazing company. Do not hesitate for a second to call these people.

Review Date: 10/18/2015 | Author: Dwight E.

Comments: Great follow up by the owner Arman. His employee went out of his to explain the work he was doing for me and completed the work sooner than expected. This was a great experience. I am quite pleased with the outcome of the work.

Comments: Best value and service money can buy. I interviewed 4 companies when looking to complete our kitchen project and ultimately chose this company. I made the right decision. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend and refer this company to family and friends. There was a slight imperfection in the paint once the job was done and Arman personally came out to fix it the next day.

Review Date: 09/25/2015 | Author: Scott W.

Comments: Really the best of the best! On time, finished quickly and the quality of work performed on my very fine and expensive wine cabinet is second to none. If you have furniture re-finishing or cabinet work to be done, this is who you should hire...I know I will. Highly recommended!

Comments: Arman was very good to work with - responsive and attentive. The refinish work was excellent. The piece came out exactly as we discussed. I would use them again and I would definitely recommend this company to others.

Review Date: 04/26/2015 | Author: Moises B.

Comments: After talking to four contractors, I decided to hire Arman Solimani, who owns Custom Wood Finishing. First, the price was reasonable. Second, his company has excellent reviews. Third, he took one of our old kitchen cabinet doors to his shop, refinished it and brought it back the following day and asked us if we liked his work and the color. We told him to make the stain semi-gloss and he was very receptive. The job was done on time without any problems. His workers were very professional and honest. I hardly give good reviews, unless the company/person really deserves it. EXCELLENT WORK!

Review Date: 03/03/2015 | Author: Ashley B.

Comments: The initial requirements which the rate was based on changed once on the site. Arman adjusted the price accordingly and was fair about it. The employees were very nice, respectful and knew what they were doing. Arman continued over-site throughout the project and the cabinets look great. Any spot unhappy with, fixed immediately. Good to know: if I wanted a completely different color this is a longer project but they can also re-do to color specification. Highly recommend. Great use of color.

Comments: Arman worked on my kitchen cabinets 2 years a go. The result was unbelievable and still after 2 years didn't change . Nice to mention that he redone 3 times the color change to reach to the color I wanted. He took his time to find the color I like. He is amazing guy with a professional team. Thanks Arman

Review Date: 08/11/2014 | Author: Pat C.

Comments: This company is the best. Great service, wonderful job, fair price and a man of his word. After refinishing our custom cabinets with an antique glaze finish that looks beautiful, he was paid and said he would return to touch up and finish anything that was overlooked, which he did and took care of it all. We are very satisfied and would recommend him to anyone. Professionalism at its best.

Comments: This is a first rate company. We hired them to paint the exterior trim and stain our wood windows. The work was outstanding. The crew was very professional and did not need us to watch them all the time. We ended up having them refinish our dining room table. We very pleased. Would hire them again.

Comments: Goes the extra mile in customer service.

Review Date: 03/04/2014 | Author: Prema S.

Comments: Arman was a joy to work with! After coming and producing a quote for all the pieces we wanted to refinish, he left pleasantly, and without any pressure, asked us to contact him if we were interested to proceed. We contacted him a month later and he came and took away our 50s dining set, and a very old (perhaps 1920s) chair. He returned them in a week, he did some repair on the chair legs, and the finish is gorgeous. He is very reasonably priced compared to the other quotes we received through Home Advisor companies. We are planning on hiring him again going forward.

Review Date: 02/18/2014 | Author: John M.

Comments: Arman provided excellent and prompt service. We had an antique parquet dining room table and caneback chairs, all of which were worn and the table top very damaged. The table came back beautifully restored and the whole set is now refinished and matches perfectly. Like getting a new dining room suite and all done within a week. Definitely would use them again for another project.

Comments: CWF stripped multiple layers of old paint off our 25-year-old built-in bathroom cabinet, and refinished it in furniture-grade Satin - and it looks fantastic!!

Review Date: 11/16/2012 | Author: Janice T.

Comments: I needed my existing white kitchen cabinets repainted in the same white lacquer because some of my cabinets doors were worn and the paint was chipped. I had called several places to see what my options were .. most places wanted to resurface my kitchen. At Custom Wood Finishing, Arman, suggested that we just do the cabinets doors that required painting as a result I was able to save money and the finished work was beautiful. The painted matched and the cabinet doors all look alike (original). Great Work!
