Colonial
Craft’s ready-to-install extension jambs are available in several
species and substrates, including solid, linear-wrapped, and painted. All Colonial Craft moldings utilize proprietary SmoothWood Technology to
give manufacturers high-quality, ready-to-finish surfaces, helping them
save time and money by reducing prep work and resulting in fewer
remakes. The SmoothWood Technology softens knife marks, reduces shine
lines, opens the wood grain for excellent depth and definition and
provides a uniform appearance for staining, clear coat or painting.
 
With
a strong commitment to sustainability, Colonial Craft by Homeshield was
the first hardwood millwork manufacturer in the United States to have
achieved SmartWood certification in 1994 from the Forest Stewardship
Council (FSC). This ensures that all Colonial Craft products promoted
as FSC-certified are produced from wood harvested from FSC-certified
forests. In addition to involvement with FSC certification, Homeshield
Colonial Craft strives to constantly reduce its overall environmental
impact by reducing, reusing and recycling consumable items during the
manufacturing process.
