Having worked with numerous millwork companies throughout my career, I would rank Artifex number one, hands down. Their team consists of honest, high integrity people that produce exceedingly high-quality products. I have used Artifex for projects ranging from small remodeling projects to very large, extremely high-end millwork and furniture projects, and they have performed seamlessly on both.  Given my experience with Artifex, they receive my highest recommendation for any project, large or small.

I have worked with Artifex Millwork since 2004 and I am very impressed with their service professionalism and product quality. Whenever I have questions regarding millwork details, finish samples or pricing during pre-construction phase, Artifex Millwork has been there to assist with no question asked. The shop drawings they produce are always very detailed and take into account all conditions in the field. Artifex Millwork’s pricing is very reasonable and they are definitely my go-to Millwork fabricator for projects. And last but not least, they are truly a joy to work with!
