What is your wainscoting made of?
AIC Millworks proudly manufactures all wainscoting components from solid stock selected from the finest clear, kiln-dried lumber. We do not use engineered lumber (such as MDF or veneer) as many of our competitors do. The only exception is the use of plywood for flat panels components of the recessed-panel kits.
What is a custom layout?
A custom layout is a technical drawing created by an experienced member of our support team. This document is used to define the appropriate layout that meets your specific needs, to include custom-sized pieces. Fine adjustments are made to the components to ensure a balanced, full-panel layout along each wall. You may choose this option when adding your kit to the cart.
