Stock vs Custom Millwork: The Differences Explained

Before the differences can be explained, let’s start with what each of these topics has in common. Stock is defined as a mass-produced item that is made effectively and is limited in design styles and features. In high contrast, millwork encompasses items that are made using alternatives to wood, including synthetics, plastics, and wood-adhesive composites and have a large array of styles and colors.

It is no secret that stock products are a less-expensive way to go if a consumer is looking for quantity rather than quality. However, customers whose styles exceeds the ordinary, custom millwork is the perfect choice. Custom, plainly defined, is a product or service that is specifically made-to-order by the consumer. If you are a customer who enjoys putting practical and creative together, the custom choice is the more advantageous.

There is definitely a place for stock products. Their low cost, their immediate off-the-shelf availability, and that they satisfy basic improvement requirements which are a plus for certain projects.  They serve their purpose in both a utilitarian way as well as in their fresh appearance and are a helpful choice if time is constrained. They will refresh the look of a building, provide serviceable products and will be the least expensive option. Stock cabinets, for example, are a good choice for people who are not too fussy about the selection or quality.

Custom products cannot be beaten in beauty and design. The broad range of offerings in semi-custom and custom products makes this choice a strong one for consumers with a keen eye for detail.
