About Finish Pros

furniture chair repair

Everyone at Finish Pros is committed to excellence in the work we do for you.

Quality control is maintained at every step of the process, concluding with a 25-point inspection checklist and another inspection (plus a final polish) upon delivery. If you find anyone else who does that much, please let us know (we’d love to hire them!).

At Finish Pros, we are committed to sustainability, championing principles of recycling and reuse. Our dedication helps divert substantial amounts of quality built furniture from landfills, promoting eco-friendly practices.

For more than two decades, Finish Pros has been the trusted choice of homeowners, designers, and property managers in the Triangle area. We specialize in transforming residential and commercial spaces, preserving their legacy while promoting environmental responsibility.

committed to excellence team member

I have worked in the upholstery trade for 45 years, as an apprentice to my father, co-owner of a family business, self employed owner of my own business and now employed at Finish Pros. My father taught me that the key to producing quality work is “knowing what the finished product would look like before you even start the job.”

I have the privilege of working along side of co-workers who fully understand this concept and apply this knowledge to every job that leaves our building.

Meet Our Founder & Owner: Dan McKenzie

Dan’s appreciation for renewing and restyling existing furnishings began at an early age as he spent time at his parents’ auction house in Raleigh, North Carolina where he grew up. Later, he put that budding interest to practical use as an apprentice in his brother’s refinishing shop.

Dan founded Finish Pros in 2001 and today, he leads a team of more than 20 professionals. Despite the company’s growth, Dan still makes sure he’s involved in every project as he oversees the team’s work and personally checks for quality and accuracy. Leading with the core values of personal service, commitment to excellence, and teamwork and innovation, Dan delivers a rare small-shop experience to each customer. Asking questions to understand their needs and providing white-glove pick-up and delivery services are just a few examples of how he treats his customers with care and a relational – rather than transactional – attitude. And while efficiency is important to keep projects moving, he and his team take the time to do things right. When Dan isn’t working, he’s probably at the beach with his amazing wife and their two great kids.
